” Rainbow Curtain” suppressing freedom of speech, freedom of conscience and parental rights.

Christian student expelled for opposing gay marriage
Social worker postgraduate is told quoting the Bible in Facebook discussion could cause offence
By John Bingham, Religious Affairs Editor10:23PM GMT 27 Feb 2016
A Christian postgraduate student has been expelled from his course, effectively ending his chances of a career as a social worker, for voicing opposition to gay marriage in a Facebook discussion.
Felix Ngole, a 38-year-old father of four, expressed support for Kim Davis, the county clerk from Kentucky in the US who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licences after the introduction of same-sex unions in September last year.
He argued that homosexual activity is against the teaching of the Bible, quoting a verse from Leviticus describing it as an “abomination”.
“I don’t see how you can end somebody’s professional career based on something that is untested and unproven.”
The post, from his private Facebook account, was part of a discussion thread in which other users voiced their opinions on all sides of the debate.
It was not until two months later that he was summoned to a disciplinary hearing at Sheffield University after a fellow student complained about his post.
He said he was initially not even told what he was accused of doing. He was eventually told that it involved breaching social work guidelines on “personal conduct” and “bringing the profession into disrepute”.
At a further hearing, a university “fitness to practise” panel concluded that he was entitled to his opinion on the issue of gay marriage but that there was a danger he “may have caused offence to some individuals” by voicing it.
They concluded that, even though he was not yet even qualified as a social worker, his comment on the Facebook thread would affect his ability to operate in the profession.
As a result he was effectively expelled from the university, ordered to hand in his student ID and even his library card.
The case has striking parallels with that of Adrian Smith, a housing trust manager from Trafford, Greater Manchester, who was demoted in 2011, effectively having his salary halved, over a private Facebook post in which he voiced opposition to plans for gay marriage.
The trust claimed that Mr Smith’s posting could damage its reputation for “diversity” and that even though it had been posted outside work it breached policies forbidding upsetting colleagues.
