This case represents an important victory for the rights of free speech during employment.

The case focused on the use of speech codes in the workplace, which is interesting from a First Amendment perspective, and the increasing use of the power by the employer to impose restrictions on free speech and of dissenting views by use of anti- discrimination law.

The case concerned an argument, in which the employer held: Viewpoint A (disagreeing with the views of the Church) was reasonable;  but Viewpoint B (that homosexuality was a sin) breached their Equality Policy.  Ms Mbuyi was dismissed summarily.

This is the type of religious dispute and case that we have in the United Kingdom; particularly the clash between religious rights and sexual orientation rights.

The case was reported in the Sunday Times
