Please be clear on this ruling.   It's not completely what the headline says.   


The ruling says that the University (or other non-church bodies) CAN NOT force people into violating their own human rights, even on religious affiliation.   

The ruling DOES NOT apply to direct church affiliation.   

In other words, churches can hang signs saying "no fags allowed" but church-owned businesses can't.

Ban all religion.  Do what you want in your own time.

For anyone who is a bit of a legal nut, the Supreme Court of Canada's reasons are available here: Trinity Western University v. Law Society of Upper Canada, 2018 SCC 33 http://canlii.ca/t/hsjpt

I was following this case, and it continues a trend in Canada since the late 1990s toward LGBTQ equity.

Canada more liberal now than the US. Good read for the education of LGBT rights in canada.

people whether they are LGBTQ+ or not should be treated equally.  People are people.  I am who I am, fact. No religion should have any say in the law that demotes or treats me any different from anyone else.

Religion should be completely separated from governement and the law becuase of this.  If you choose to be religious, as you have full right to be, do what you want in your own home /  places of worship, but it has no place in a secular society.

A "secular" society that treats everyone the same no matter your race or sexual orientation.
