A Christian university in Canada has abandoned a rule banning gay sex between students after losig the case in the Supreme Court. In June, the country’s top court ruled 7-2 in favour of law societies which refused accreditation to the school at Trinity Western University (TWU) in British Columbia because the law school banned sex that goes ‘beyond the God’s idea of marriage’. The university applied for accreditation in every province – meaning that its law students could be called to the bar anywhere in the country – but Ontario, British Columbia and Nova Scotia’s law societies – as well as the BC government – refused. It led to a long legal battle, though the university lost it. The school has passed a motion to end the ban, which states that “the Community Covenant will no longer be mandatory as of the 2018-19 Academic year with respect to admission of students to, or continuation of students at, the University.”
