      Felix Ngole wins appeal in victory for Christian freedoms

      Here is the actual judgement by the Court of Appeal: PDF link

      This is a key paragraph (Section 5, Paragraph 10, on page 3 in the document):

      The University wrongly confused the expression of religious views with the notion of discrimination. The mere expression of views on theological grounds (e.g. that ‘homosexuality is a sin’) does not necessarily connote that the person expressing such views will discriminate on such grounds. In the present case, there was positive evidence to suggest that the Appellant had never discriminated on such grounds in the past and was not likely to do so in the future (because, as he explained, the Bible prohibited him from discriminating against anybody).

    2. @swipp_it: 1/ So, I guess my new "hobby" over the past few years has become reading terms of service/privacy policies for things I want to use and then trying to enforce my rights as laid out in those policies. Unsurprisingly, companies are often not certain how to respond to this.

      I am helping my parents rent out their place in Seattle. I posted it on Zillow, we got tons of traffics and interest. I now need to get the rental agreement in order.

      Does anyone have an informed opinion on where to get the agreement template from? I see at least 2 good options, please help me choose.

      It took a while for this to sink in, since the arrest of Huawei's Chief Financial Controller a few days ago, but...

      How does the USA have jurisdiction over Huawei's alleged sales to Iran?

      Huawei is a Chinese company, not an American company. Sure, the USA has imposed sanctions on trading with Iran - but surely those sanctions would apply only to American companies. How does the U.S. government have jurisdiction over what a Chinese company does?

    5. So, one of the things I deal with in my day to day are highly regulated industries (think guns and Legalized MJ), and I wonder where this will fit into Tildes itself. I did not see much in the ToU...

      So, one of the things I deal with in my day to day are highly regulated industries (think guns and Legalized MJ), and I wonder where this will fit into Tildes itself.

      I did not see much in the ToU in regards to this, so I wonder what governance we would be looking at?

      Is it entirely what is legal in Canada? Because something may not be entirely legal in Canada, but the discussion of it would actually be perfectly legal.

      I personally am someone looking for a migration from reddit, as it has become an unstable place for functional discussion.
