UK Court: Belief in Bible “Incompatible With Human Dignity”
UK Court: Belief in Bible “Incompatible With Human Dignity” By Paul Symons for Liberty Sentinel
In another sign that Britain has officially entered a post-Christian age, a judge in the United Kingdom just ruled that belief in the Bible is “incompatible with human dignity.”
The case involved a self-proclaimed “transgender” person who wanted his doctor to refer to him using objectively incorrect pronouns.
Citing Genesis 1:27, which states the fact that God created people male and female, Dr. David Mackereth refused to play along with the delusion.
In his court filings with the Employment Tribunal, Dr. Mackereth said he “holds to the principles of the Great Reformation of the 16th Century including a commitment to the supremacy of the Bible as the infallible, inerrant word of God as his final authority in all matters of faith and practice.”
However, the court ruled that “belief in Genesis 1:27, lack of belief in transgenderism and conscientious objection to transgenderism in our judgment are incompatible with human dignity.”
The court also claimed adhering to one’s belief in the Bible would “conflict with the fundamental rights of others, specifically here, transgender individuals.”
And so, unable to play along with the patient’s dangerous and objectively false delusion, Mackereth lost his job at the Department for Work and Pensions.
The Christian Legal Center, which represented Mackereth in the legal case, warned that the ruling against the Bible and Christians would have “serious ramifications” for Christian professionals and all others.
“The judgment dictates the language that professionals must use in the workplace,” the Center said, adding that the ruling contradicts scientific reality and will undermine freedom of speech.
Christian Legal Center attorney Michael Phillips noted that this ruling officially excludes Christians from legal protections, and puts the Bible on par with neo-Nazi ideology as far as government is concerned.
Dr. Mackereth promised to appeal the ruling.
