Music to his ears

Following our piece on the gay South African music teacher who got an apology from the religious bigots who sacked him, we're now happy to report that the Dutch Reformed Church, Moreleta Park, will pay him about R87,000 (£6,000; US$10,500) in damages and loss of income. Well, we can't claim it was our story that did it, but it's nice to report, all the same.

Johan Strydom claimed the church discriminated against him on the grounds of sexual orientation.
