    You just made my point. A person should not be expelled from a school because they base their fears on what others have done.

    Depends. Should a law school admit a person with a felony record, knowing they will never practice unless they get a pardon? Isn't there any duty at all on the school's part to at least discourage students who are doomed to fail?

    If that's the case then the college would need to do a test on individuals to see if they have views they think would hurt their ability to do Social Work

    Nobody's views were called "discrimination." That lie will never become true no matter how much repeat that tired old argumentum ad nauseum.

    I most certainly did not. You are making things up.

    Not everyone who goes to law school practices law. In Arizona, a convicted murderer (after he had served his sentence) won the right in the state supreme court to be admitted to a state law school (ASU). However, he did not win the right to be admitted to the bar after his graduation.

    No one is saying beliefs equal bigotry. You are making that up.

    Cases like this are going to bounce around like ping pong balls, with some people being vindicated and others losing their profession.

    It's a convincing argument that a statement made in private should have no bearing on ones job.

    But social media (like this site) IS NOT PRIVATE

    It's public.

    Putting something on Facebook is no different than putting it on a billboard.

    Can an NBA referee start a website called "God I hate the Lakers" and still be hired to ref games?

    Felix Ngole, 39, was kicked out of Sheffield University last year after expressing support for traditional marriage on his own personal Facebook page. The university called him "unfit to practice" in his profession after he said, "the Bible and God identify homosexuality as a sin."

    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."

    Being told you are not fit for the position of Social Worker because of your religious affiliation is religious discrimination . This is why he won the case. Learn a lesson from this
