      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).
