For some of the boomers, the whole “you have to call this boy in a dress a girl or else” was the line in the sand.
They didn’t exactly rise up, but a few of them said “no.” And they’re paying the price.
A British doctor has warned that a dangerous precedent has been set after a tribunal ruled that he was rightfully terminated for refusing to use transgender pronouns, and that his Christian values clash with those of UK society.
Dr. David Mackereth was fired from his job at the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) after telling his manager that in a hypothetical scenario, he would never “call any 6-foot tall bearded man madam.”
This wasn’t even an actual madam.
It was a hypothetical madam.
The case was brought before a Birmingham employment tribunal, which said in its ruling that the government department had every right to sack Mackereth, and that the doctor’s biblical beliefs have no place in British society.
“Belief in Genesis 1:27, lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment are incompatible with human dignity and conflict with the fundamental rights of others.”
Speaking to RT, Mackereth said that the ruling has profound and troubling implications for freedom of speech and conscience in the UK.
“The question here is whether I can be forced to do something and to say something that goes deeply against my conscience.”
He said that the judgment means that “you’re not allowed not to believe the transgender movement’s maxims,” while “core” Christian beliefs have been labeled as unfit for modern life.
Christianity is more or less illegal in all Western countries.
I remember that when I was a kid and doomsday end times pastors were saying “they’re going to make Christianity illegal,” it sounded silly.
But what exactly do you call this?
And the only difference in America is that the state doesn’t get involved. He still would have lost his job for this in America. If anything, he’s in a better overall position in Britain, because he’s more likely to get his pension and various other benefits after being fired.
This doctor’s case has been going on for a while.
He was on Piers Morgan a while back.
