B.C. lawyers vote to deny accreditation to conservative Trinity Western University law school over anti-gay-sex stance

Fortunately, not binding; just symbolic of their bigoted anti-Christian progressive attitudes…

VANCOUVER – In what may well have been the largest gathering of lawyers in B.C. history, members of the Law Society of B.C. decisively voted Tuesday to stop Trinity Western University — a Christian school that condemns gay sex — from being able to hand out law degrees.

But while gay rights advocates praised the vote as a hard-earned victory, the ultimate fate of TWU’s proposed law school still rests with the Law Society’s 31 governing benchers.

As the society noted in a handout, Tuesday’s resolution is “only an expression of the members of the Law Society, and is not binding on the Benchers.”

According to early results, 3210 to 968 of B.C. lawyers sided with a resolution calling for TWU’s soon-to-be-opened law school to be denied Law Society of B.C. accreditation.
