His post was most reasonable, it didn't contain any inflammatory language or homophobic slurs, yet he still got demoted and his pay cut because of one private facebook post.
He simply did not agree with gays getting married in churches, which is an understandable view when you consider his religious background. I might not agree with his comment, but it was not in any way out of bounds when it came to language. He was just expressing his opinion through a (supposedly) private forum.
I believe someone who didn't fancy him too much in his circle of acquaintances was the one who brought this up to higher management.
I just think this goes way too far when a certain view is pushed onto a population through force. Losing a major portion of income can be horribly devastating on a person, especially if you have a family to support, like this man.
He should have immediately resigned and gone to a tribuneral for constructive dismissal.
Religious freedoms are protected by law so he would have won as its discrimination on grounds of religious beliefs.
