gavel with Lady of JusticeAn expelled Christian student in England is glad to have finally gained a victory for free speech.

Felix Ngole was seeking a master's degree in social studies at the University of Sheffield until shortly after he shared a Facebook post supporting God's design for marriage being between one man and one woman. The Christian Legal Centre sued on his behalf after the university kicked him out of the program, and after a four-year-long battle, attorney Tom Dieppe tells OneNewsNow the Court of Appeal has ruled in Ngole's favor.

"We're very pleased that the judgment sees common sense and protects freedom of speech for Christians, and Jews, and Muslims, and many other people right across the land to say what they think on moral issues," Dieppe comments.

And he believes the ruling will set a precedent for any future U.K. cases.

Ngole is pleased with the verdict and glad that the four-year battle is finally over.

"After I was expelled from the University of Sheffield, it was difficult to get a job," he shares. "It was tough, but God has been great. God has been faithful."

Ngole does not know if he will return to the university, but he does know he wants to pursue a master's degree in social science out of his love for people and his drive to help those in need.
