America isn’t the only Western country where expressing opposition to gay marriage will unleash serious backlash from progressives. At Sheffield University in the UK, one student has been expelled after he voiced his opposition to gay marriage on his personal Facebook page.
Felix Ngole, 38, was expelled from Sheffield University after faculty staff decided he ‘may have caused offence to some individuals’.
The postgraduate father of four, who was studying to become a social worker, has been told his actions affect his fitness to practise and was ordered to hand back his student ID and library card.
Mr Ngole was reported after using his private Facebook account to express support for Kim Davis, a county clerk from Kentucky, who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licences after the introduction of same-sex unions there last September.
Mr Ngole argued that homosexual activity is against the teaching of the Bible, quoting a verse from Leviticus describing it as an ‘abomination’.
Yesterday, he said he was appealing the university’s decision because the case had wider consequences for the ‘freedom of religion and freedom of expression’.
Ngole says he was censored.
“The university claims my views are discriminatory, but I am the one being discriminated against because of my expression of Christian beliefs,” Ngole said, the Daily Mail reports. “I wonder whether the university would have taken any action if a Muslim student who believes in Sharia law, with its teaching about women and homosexuality, had made moderate comments on his Facebook page. I don’t think so.’
