An Employment Tribunal in the UK dismissed a discrimination lawsuit filed by a Christian teacher in Bristol. Svetlana Powell was fired from her job at the T2 Apprenticeship Academy when she answered a student’s question about her views on homosexuality in 2016. Powell reportedly stated homosexuality was “against God’s will” but that He loves everyone.
According to Christian Concern, a student knew about Powell’s Christian faith and started asking probing questions in an attempt to trap the teacher.
