As an evangelical-Christian university, Trinity Western follows the literal Christian interpretation of marriage as a heterosexual union between man and woman. In constitutional law, this language can be considered discriminatory because it excludes people who do not fit into this traditional marriage model. At the time of this incident, Trinity Western University asked all students to sign a collective agreement for moral behaviour. One tenant described this collective agreement as having to report premarital sex. A few months after the Supreme Court decision, Trinity Western changed its policy. It did not change the collective agreement, but it was repealed as a mandatory measure at the signing. In short, the agreement described what the university described as “reasonable” and “inappropriate.” These were based on a traditional interpretation of the Christian moral code. It is an example of organizational secularization and shows how religious orders and concepts can and can develop. As changes evolve, society often changes with it. Religion in many ways reflects the needs, desires and qualities of the people who are there. Religions exist in many cases to serve people and give meaning and cause in aspects of life where there might be a void before. When society and people change, so do many of their spiritual and physical needs.
Religions are obliged to take these changes into account or are at risk of being overtaken.
