Opinion: Who would Jesus discriminate against?

In Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Current Events on June 20, 2014 at 8:51 am

This opinion piece provides a very interesting personal take on what it was and is like to live and work from a dissenting position in a religious institution. While the specific problem in this case relates to the religious mission of the Trinity Western University (BC, Canada), the questions it raises around academic freedom and social justice in the academy are very real in all institutions of higher education, as the recent hubbub at the University of Saskatchewan and a variety of US institutions attests.

Have a read of Who would Jesus discriminate against? and let me know your thoughts.
