    There could be. A gay social worker might find it very challenging to work with anti-gay clients. But this is true of all professionals; they will encounter unpleasant clients and still have to remain professional and helpful.

    The vast majority of the time, her religion was a non-issue - or the clients viewed it with muted fascination. But ultimately, she was a social worker - and she did as good a job (or more often, better) as any of her colleagues.
    When I was growing up, Catholic social services preferred to hire Catholic social workers, as they could more reliably be asked to carry out that agency's more extremist protocols.

    What if somebody quotes the Bible and stones his wife for adultery. Should the courts allow that?

    The father of four from Cameroon did not go down without a fight and sued the university. Ngole argued he was unfairly stopped from completing his degree plan. His case was rejected repeatedly by lower courts until the high court finally ruled in his favor.

    "Students with orthodox Christian views are being told that they aren't fit to practice," says Chief Executive Andrea Minichiello Williams from the Christian Legal Centre which represented Ngole during his case. "For religious people who believe now what most people used to believe, it can be a bar to office."http://www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/cwn/2017/april/victory-is-the-lords-christian-student-wins-big-in-lawsuit-what-he-did-to-get-expelled

    This happened in England and the court sided with the student and they were right. A person studying Social Work should not be denied a career because of their religion. This has happened in America before and its not right to discriminate towards a person because of their religious beliefs.

    Woot.

    There are more Christian churches than 7/11 stores in the US.

    What is this dreadful bigotry you perceive?

    If wedding chapel guys rented to the public and refused some customers because they were gay, they could have run afoul of antidiscrimination laws, yes. Just like bakery guys did.

    Solution is to prevent such difficulties by going private, offering to rent only to the members of one or two churches.

    The student won the case where he was expelled from the school for his beliefs. This was clearly religious discrimination

    You mentioned that in the U.S., "another student was dropped from the program because of their Christian beliefs." Do you have a link? A name, perhaps?
    the link to the student in the US is in the OP
