I kid you not.  I know that some of you likely read the title to this post and thought, “Ugh. Clickbait.” Sadly, the title is the opposite of clickbait, it is a completely accurate explanation of something that recently occurred to a student studying for their Master’s Degree at England’s Sheffield University.

In September of 2015, Mr. Felix Ngole was in the midst of his studies as a second-year masters student when he posted a message on his Facebook page offering support of the unjustly imprisoned American, Kim Davis. Ngole shared a post that said, “I stand with Kim Davis,” then commented on the Bible verse shared within the post. The verse came from the book of Leviticus and it calls homosexuality an “abomination.”

Then in November, the University told Ngole that he would need to attend a mandatory meeting with the school to discuss his Facebook post. At that meeting he was referred to a school committee which would rule on his “fitness” to continue in his coursework. That committee decided that Ngole was unfit because his actions had “transgressed boundaries which are not deemed appropriate for someone entering the social work profession.” Their decision meant his immediate expulsion from the school. After facing pushback for their decision, the committee said that it wasn’t based on Ngole’s beliefs, but on his decision to post them publicly.

Did you get that? It’s okay to believe whatever you want… you’re just not allowed to say what you believe.

gay-anti-speechThe chief executive at England’s Christian Legal Centre, Andrea Williams, opined that this situation is par for the course in today’s politically correct (and eerily fascist) England. “Sadly, this is yet another case of Christians being ‘neutered’ in the public arena, and of censorship of views.”

Ngole disagreed with the school’s decision and has filed an appeal with the University. He also criticized the intolerance they showed for his beliefs.“My beliefs about marriage and sexual ethics reflect mainstream, biblical understanding, shared by millions around the world. Simply expressing that understanding, in a personal capacity, on my Facebook page, cannot be allowed to become a bar to serving and helping others in a professional capacity as a social worker.” Ngole also wondered if the school would have reacted similarly to a Muslim student.  “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.”

Sadly, this past week we learned that Mr. Ngole had lost his appeal and had been officially expelled from Sheffield University. Andrea Williams, whose group took on Mr. Ngole’s case,argued that this is yet another example of the worrisome direction that England (and the West) are heading:

“The university’s decision reflects a worrying trend throughout Higher Education institutions, which is to censor any view that may be deemed ‘offensive’.

“Mr Ngole has worked with those who identify as homosexual in the past and has always treated them with respect, never discriminating against them. There is no evidence that Felix’s biblical views would have negatively impacted his work.

“We have become used to registrars, nurses, teachers, magistrates and counsellors being disciplined in their jobs for acting according to conscience, but this is the very first time a Christian student has been stopped even before he enters his chosen vocation to help others – simply for holding traditional Christians views on marriage and sexuality.

“This case raises fundamental issues which is why taking further action is vital.” 

Ngole’s case is another example of the rampant hypocrisy of the left and their concerted effort to marginalize and ostracize conservative Christians, wherever we may be found.
