Can We Legislate Beliefs?
Howard, J. Paul R.
Education Canada, v41 n3 p36-37 Fall 2001
Trinity Western University (TWU) (British Columbia) was denied accreditation as a teacher training institution because the accrediting college felt that TWU--a Christian institution excluding persons based on sexual orientation--would produce teachers that discriminated against homosexual students. In subsequent court litigation, the Supreme Court upheld religious freedoms, stating that religious beliefs would not necessarily lead to discriminatory conduct. (SV)
