    Listen. It's come down to who can speak out and who cannot.

    The libs have pushed PC crap so far down our throats we don't even have room to gag.

    There isn't a dang thing wrong with defending traditional marriage and saying a little against gay marriage.

    We as Christians have no voice, no nothing. It's nuts.

    As a Christian, I realize that ALL of this was foretold.

    IF you are a Christian, don't expect this dynamic to get any better. In fact....best prepare for things to get worse.

    To give the full picture of this case, this thread, posted a year and a half after this one, is part of the context for what follows:

    UK Court Rules Bible Facebook Posts Are Not 'Discrimination' Against LGBT People

    On Wednesday, a British appeals court upheld the case of Felix Ngole, a Christian student expelled for posting Bible verses on Facebook. Sheffield University ruled that expressing a religious view that condemns homosexual activity violated the rules for the social work profession. Since Ngole was studying for a master of arts in social work, his expression of biblical beliefs on homosexuality proved grounds for dismissal, the university claimed.

    In 2015, Ngole made comments supporting Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk who refused to issue same-sex marriage licenses. He wrote that "same sex marriage is a sin whether we like it or not. It is God's words and man's sentiments would not change His words." Ngole also quoted various Bible passages to support this position.
    ...
    On Wednesday, three appeals court judges — Lord Justice Stephen Irwin, Lord Justice Charles Haddon-Cave, and Sir Jack Beatson — ruled that the university "wrongly confused the expression of religious views with the notion of discrimination. The mere expression of views on theological grounds (e.g. that ‘homosexuality is a sin’) does not necessarily connote that the person expressing such views will discriminate on such grounds."
    I suppose this could be viewed as a victory. OTOH, it's pretty pathetic that it took an appeals court to inject common sense into a university to shut down thinly camouflaged anti-religious bigotry.
