Christian doctor of 30 years loses job for refusing to use transgender patient’s preferred pronoun

Christian doctor of 30 years loses job for refusing to use transgender patient’s preferred pronoun, by Caleb Parke.

A seasoned British doctor lost his government job as a medical assessor after more than three decades because he refused to renounce his Christian belief that gender is determined at birth.

Dr. David Mackereth, 56, a National Health Service employee, was fired from his post at the Department for Work and Pensions in July because he would not use a transgender pronoun, saying he believes “gender is defined by biology and genetics” and the “Bible teaches us that God made humans male or female.”

This week he lost his case before an Employment Tribunal in England, where the judge ruled his beliefs were “incompatible with human dignity.”

Mackereth, who now works as an NHS emergency doctor in another city, said his supervisor pressured him to refer to a “man six foot tall with a beard” as “she” and “Mrs.,” but the doctor refused.

“No doctor, or researcher, or philosopher, can demonstrate or prove that a person can change sex,” Mackereth told Fox News. “Without intellectual and moral integrity, medicine cannot function and my 30 years as a doctor are now considered irrelevant compared to the risk that someone else might be offended.”

This issue is simply too big to avoid. The pointy end of political correctness is becoming more and more harmful. Reality will win out over political correctness eventually, but there will be casualties in the meantime.


When are the voters going to come to the realization that PC is a tyranny being imposed by the left, rather the Democrat party?

Is it still possible to be a Christian and a Democrat at the same time? Years ago I would have never posed this question but I think many good Democrats have not realized how their party has changed. It is too progressive/socialist/communist today. There are no Kennedy Democrats anymore.

PC must be resisted by all of us if we want to hold onto our freedoms.
