A Christian theologian, Dr. Aaron Edwards, is suing a Methodist Bible university, alleging discrimination after being fired for a social media post on homosexuality.

His dismissal led to accusations of bringing the college into disrepute.

Edwards refused to take down the post, causing backlash from LGBTQ activists and distress among members of the Methodist Church. (Trending: Bombshell Email Uncovered Between Joe Biden And Hunter)

“Homosexuality is invading the Church,” he wrote.

“Evangelicals no longer see the severity of this b/c they’re busy apologizing for their apparently barbaric homophobia, whether or not it’s true.”

“This is a ‘Gospel issue’, by the way. If sin is no longer sin, we no longer need a Saviour.”

The school’s investigation allegedly involved intimidation tactics, and Edwards believes his case will raise awareness about threats to free speech.

He is seeking damages for unfair dismissal and compensation under the Equality Act, aiming to set a precedent for others to express their views freely.

“I think many Christians have not been willing to say things that will offend people,” he later stated.

“The British people especially find it hard to offend people in ways that other cultures don’t because they’re more willing to say, ‘This is what I believe, and you need to kind of get over it.”

“And I’m free to say that.’ I think in Britain for many years, we’ve tolerated a kind of self-silencing,” he added.

“Whether we win or not… it’s going to be helpful because we’re showing that you can’t get away with this, and you shouldn’t get away with it. And if I don’t win my case, hopefully someone else will or people will realize that this is completely absurd, that an evangelical can’t express evangelical views in an evangelical college,” he said.

“Hopefully this will set a precedent and push on the conversation further so that others will be enabled the freedoms that they should have had already,” he added.

This case sheds light on the growing rift among Methodists globally over same-sex marriage, occurring in the context of broader concerns about freedom of speech.
