56-year-old Dr David Mackereth was working as a disability benefits assessor for the Department of Work and Pensions.
“The father-of-four alleges he was asked in a conversation with a line manager: “If you have a man six foot tall with a beard who says he wants to be addressed as ‘she’ and ‘Mrs’, would you do that?” reports the Telegraph.
His contract was immediately terminated over his refusal to use transgendered pronouns, with Mackereth arguing that transgenderism is a “delusional belief” and an ideology “which I disbelieve and detest”.
Mackereth, who describes himself as an “unashamed” Christian and has 30 years’ medical experience, was previously warned that he was “overwhelmingly likely” to lose his job unless he agreed with describing biological men as women.
He is now suing the government on the grounds that he was discriminated against on the basis of his religious beliefs, arguing that “gender fluidity” is “no more than one’s own fantasy about oneself”.
Progress! Isn’t it exhilarating? Let’s throw away this man’s expensive education and 30 years of experience in healing people, ‘cos he doesn’t align 100% with the current political trend. Who’s your daddy?
