    Conveniently, religions place all of their claims after people are dead and can't come back to tell the religious how full of crap they really are.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Sounds like a really stupid political system you have there.

    The law societies were created by the government but they are not part of the government, they can decide who they want practicing law and who they do not.

    Interesting. Lets put it this way. If they recieve government monies then they should not discriminate themselves and as such they should accredit the school. If they don't... as a private entity it's their choice. Private religious schools here in the US are allowed to discriminate in who they take in and don't take in so long as they at least teach what is government mandated to teach. Anything taught beyond that is entirely up to the school.

    It is not the government accrediting them, it is the law societies which can be considered their own private entities but with the power to decide who can and cannot practice law.

    So if they decide they don't want black people practicing law, that's fine with you, huh?

    Well the law society is not the one discriminating against anyone, it is the university.

    well it sounds to me as if a organization [law societies] which is not part of government is holding a private school hostage, because it will not remove a policy at the school the organization [law societies] does not like, even though it has nothing to do being accredited.

    The law societies refuse to except a university that discriminates against homosexuals, they can make that decision.

    to me, its the same if this was happening in the u.s.


    the u.s. gives the federal reserve a charter, with the federal reserve not being part of government, then the federal reserve starts telling private institutions is America, you cant use the federal reserve note, because you discriminate.
