They were considerably more sensible and eucivic than the present global justice Badthink Laws:
Dr David Mackereth’s 26-year medical career hasn’t been jeopardised by endless, gruelling, night shifts.
Nor have the life and death decisions he has made on NHS emergency wards for decades put him off his profession.
It was, in the end, his response to an instruction in a nondescript training room that has left his future hanging in the balance.
After being offered a job as a medical assessor for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), David was told to refer to those seeking disability allowance as whatever gender they requested. So, should a man have walked into his office claiming he was a woman, he would need to be treated as such, and described in any correspondence with the pronoun ‘she’ not ‘he’.
In an age in which the Government and the NHS are subjecting transgender issues to ever greater scrutiny, it was an edict that David had been dreading — and one the 55-year-old was unwilling to obey.
‘As a Christian, I believe gender is determined biologically and genetically,’ he says.
He was also very aware that expressing such a belief would be likely to end his career.
‘I was scared, really frightened,’ he admits. ‘I knew it could be the end of my work as a doctor, but I could not live with myself if I didn’t speak up. It would be dishonest — and I didn’t want to live a lie.’
Sure enough, his contract with the DWP was swiftly terminated on the grounds that his refusal to use the preferred pronouns of people who identify as the opposite gender could be considered harassment as defined by the 2010 Equality Act.Three weeks on, he is in little doubt that his career is over.
If people can be disemployed for refusing to believe that gender is self-determined or that one group of people murdered a specific number of a different group of people in the 20th century, then they can certainly be disemployed, or even deported, for refusing to believe that God exists and Jesus Christ is Lord.
The fraudulent nature of the Enlightenment has been revealed. Freedom of speech and expression was always just an excuse to try to dislodge Christianity from its dominant position in the West and thereby destroy Western Civilization.
A DWP spokesperson told the Mail Mr Mackereth made it clear in training that he would refuse to use pronouns which did not match his own view of a person’s biological gender and that the Equality Act made it unlawful to discriminate on the grounds of a ‘protected characteristic’ such as gender reassignment. She added: ‘We expect all assessors to handle assessments sensitively and adhere to the Equality Act 2010.’
Observe that, as usual, equality is the intellectual justification for evil. Equality is evil and Thomas Jefferson’s flights of rhetorical fancy notwithstanding, all men are most certainly not created equal in any way, legal, material, or spiritual. Equality is the retarded version of “ye shall be as gods” and nothing good ever comes of it.
