Felix was removed from his university social work course after he made comments on his personal Facebook page in support of biblical teaching on marriage and sexual ethics. Felix was told that, by posting his comments on Facebook, he “may have caused offence to some individuals” and had “transgressed boundaries which are not deemed appropriate for someone entering the Social Work profession.”

Felix’s case raises doubt over whether Christians in regulated professions enjoy free speech protections. Representing Felix in court, barrister Paul Diamond said:

“If you philosophically believe in free speech, people should have the right to say what you don’t want to hear… Society must be rational in its restrictions of free speech. Otherwise, free speech would be at the mercy of the most militant, most aggressive, most hurt, or even the most violent.”
