I just cannot understand what all the fuss is about in regards to the TWU student covenant. The superior court has already decided that itâ€™s completely legal â€“ not by a small margin, but all but one judge confirmed it.
I would also like to point out something about the gay community, as they are so opposed to this covenant. Check it out for yourself on one of their sites.
They justify discriminating against straight people by stating, â€œWhat is most special about LGBT sport is that it offers a safe and welcoming environment for homosexuals to practice their sport. In any case, in every case we practice sports not just to compete, but to share an experience with a community.â€ [http://gaygames.org/]
TWU could almost, word for word, copy the same logic to offer to Christians: â€œa safe and welcoming environment for Christians to study. In any case, we donâ€™t just study to compete, but to share an experience with a community.â€
I have been told by several Christians who attended secular universities how they â€œhad to hide their identityâ€ so as to not be ridiculed and bullied by professors and other students, especially gay students.
It amazes me how ridiculous the double standards are in our society.
