British Court In Transgender Case: Bible Belief Is 'Incompatible With Human Dignity'

•, By Hank Berrien

That statement came in a case involving Dr. David Mackereth, a devout Christian who had worked as an emergency doctor for the National Health Service for 26 years. He said he was fired from his job because he refused to call a biological man a woman. The court's ruling stated: "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, specifically here, transgender individuals." The court added. "… in so far as those beliefs form part of his wider faith, his wider faith also does not satisfy the requirement of being worthy of respect in a democratic society, not incompatible with human dignity and not in conflict with the fundamental rights of others."

I wonder if the good people of the UK actually voted to have this law in place. Or is it one that a small minority who may become violent or has a lot of cash backing got these laws threw? I find it hard to believe that England's law are not based on Christian beliefs, old English law and common sense. .
