A Christian student who was expelled from his master’s degree studies in social work by the University of Sheffield over a Facebook post about his religious beliefs on homosexuality got a legal victory at the Court of Appeal in England. 

A three-justice panel unanimously sided last Wednesday with 41-year-old Felix Ngole, who appealed a 2017 High Court judge’s decision upholding the university’s right to expel him from the two-year program for voicing beliefs online that were deemed "derogatory of gay men and bisexuals.”

The Court of Appeal ordered that there be a new hearing for Ngole held before a “differently constituted” fitness-to-practice panel at the university, stressing that the earlier proceedings were “flawed and unfair to the Appellant.”
