A Christian college in B.C.'s Fraser Valley could find its effort to found a "Christian law school" blocked by Canada's legal-education establishment.
According to Vancouver Sun religion reporter Douglas Todd, the council sent a letter to the Federation of Canadian Law Societies criticizing Trinity's proposal based on the university's longstanding requirement barring homosexual relationships. The federation has a role in accrediting law-degree programs.
All Trinity students and staff are required to sign its Community Covenant Agreement, which among other things calls on them to "observe modesty, purity and appropriate intimacy in all relationships, reserve sexual expressions of intimacy for marriage," and abstain from "sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman."
