I knew a lawyer once who wouldn't lie. I hear he is now working as a greeter at Wal-Mart.

It's not Christian law. It's a law school same as any other law school in Canada,'cept this one wants to cater to those who are Christians.

IF the students at many universities across Canada had their way, no they wouldn't. So they just make the campuses uncomfortable for those they learn are Christians...or Jewish, even if they aren't religious. That's because university campuses are hotbeds of liberalism and liberals have issues with anachronisms.
Not that I'm suggesting that theocracies or superstitious medieval societies are a good thing.

The only real issue I have is their anti-gay policy. That issue was supposed to have been put to rest up here.

I laughed at the ignorance in your post. Do you know any atheists that don't automatically assume Christian=fundie?

Yeah, it would have nothing to do with being one of Canada's premier universities. It's the ONLY Canadian university to have been voted 5 years in a row(2006 thru 2010) as the best in Canada with regards to overall quality of education. That's impressive considering McGill, the University of Toronto and the University of Western Ontario have long been considered THE premier universities in Canada and have never achieved that.

When you`re a university with 3000 year old fossils and your science faculty has to state that all conclusions reached will subordinate themselves to a book of bronze age fables you tend to have trouble when you want to be taken seriously by the academic community.

A way to achieve accreditation particularly in US christian `schools` is to simply open a law school with a post graduate program.

Engineering is another good one which is `almost science` and popular among christian `schools`.
