UK Christian doctor lost his job after refusing to identify a six-foot-tall bearded man as “madam”

The good doctor fired for his religious beliefs

From The Telegraph: A Christian doctor lost his job in a government department after he refused to refer to “a six-foot-tall bearded man” as ‘madam’, a tribunal heard.

Dr. David Mackereth, 56, claims he was sacked as a disability benefits assessor by the Department of Work and Pensions over his religious beliefs.

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?”

Dr. Mackereth, an evangelist who now works as an emergency doctor in Shropshire, claims his contract was then terminated over his refusal to use transgendered pronouns.

He argues that he was dismissed “not because of any realistic concerns over the rights and sensitivities of transgender individuals, but because of my refusal to make an abstract ideological pledge”.

The doctor is now suing the government at an employment tribunal for discrimination on the grounds of his religious belief.

A hearing in Birmingham was told how Dr. Mackereth believes transgenderism is a “delusional belief” and an ideology “which I disbelieve and detest”.

In a statement admitted into evidence, he told the court: “If you believe in gender fluidity, gender is no more than one’s own fantasy about oneself.”

The trained theologian and “unashamed” Christian, who has 30 years’ medical experience, secured a job as a Health and Disability Assessor at Birmingham’s Fiveways assessment centre in May 2018.

He told the tribunal he was suspended the following month after being “interrogated” by his boss, James Owen, for refusing to “call any six-foot-tall bearded man ‘madam’ on his whim”. The medic claims he was told he was “overwhelmingly likely” to lose his job unless he agreed.

Dr. Mackereth left his role on June 25, 2018, after an email exchange with Mr. Owen in which he was instructed to follow the “process as discussed in your training”.

The email read: “If however you do not want to do this, we will respect your decision and your right to leave your contract.” Dr Mackereth replied: “I am a Christian and in good conscience cannot do what the DWP is requiring of me.”

He insists he did not resign his position and is the victim of direct discrimination and harassment.

Dr. Mackereth told the hearing: “The very fact a doctor can be pulled of the shop floor for an urgent interrogation about his beliefs on gender fluidity is both absurd and very sinister, even more so if it results in a dismissal.

“If something like that happened in a church setting – people being pulled out of a pew, questioned, and then excommunicated – that would be seen as an outrageous example of religious intolerance and bigotry.”

The DWP argues that Dr. Mackereth’s views are in breach of the 2010 Equality Act. APM, the recruitment company who hired the medic, is also being sued for religious discrimination.

The company claims that the doctor’s beliefs “are not compatible with human dignity”.

In a statement put before the court, Dr. Mackereth said: “I appreciate that in the present political climate, some people, including some of those who believe they are transgender, may find my beliefs to be offensive.

“However, in a free society, this is not a good enough reason to censor my beliefs and coerce me to act contrary to my conscience. Moreover, as a doctor, my responsibility is always to act in good conscience in the best interest of the patients – not to adopt various fancies, prejudices, or delusions, to avoid offence at all cost.”

Dr. Mackereth added that his inherent belief is that transgenderism is a “rebellion against God, which is both pointless and sinful”.

He said: “I am, of course, aware that there are men or women who believe they have been trapped in a wrong body, and I do not question the sincerity of their convictions. “A small number of such people have always existed. Up until recently, such a belief was considered by medics to be delusional and a symptom of a medical disorder.

“It is only recently that transgenderism has been recognised as normal and such delusional beliefs accepted at face value. What is responsible for that change is political pressure, not scientific evidence.

The legal case, which is listed until next week, is being supported by the Christian Legal Centre.
Chief executive Andrea Williams described Dr. Mackereth as “a Christian hero who chose to sacrifice his distinguished professional career rather than compromise on the Bible and his conscience”.

The hearing continues.

Transgender Madness: Lesbian moms beat boy to death in Mexico, castrate-behead boy in Brazil

This news so traumatized me that I was overcome with fatigue and despair, and was on the verge of discontinuing FOTM.

You are forewarned. 

The Spanish-language Noticias Ya reports, June 14, 2019, that last February in the community of Juventino Rosas, Guanajuato, central Mexico, a 7-year-old boy, Karol Rámon, was killed by his mother and her girlfriend, after the boy refused to be dressed as a girl.

The lesbian mother, identified only as Margarita, “brutally beat” Karol on the head and stomach, “causing serious internal damage.”

By the time Margarita took her son to the emergency room of a local hospital, Karol was already dead. Autopsy of his body showed Karol had been beaten with a belt, a chair, a whip and a hammer. His body was full of bruises, scars of old wounds, cigarette burns, and mark of blows made by some large object. The boy had also been deprived of food for days.

Local media say that although the boy had been given “psychological therapy” at the Integral Family Development System, no authority detected he was being abused by his own mother. Karol’s grandmother had tried but failed to obtain custody of the boy.

Margarita was arrested for the murder of her son and placed in pre-trial detention. Televisa claims Margarita’s lesbian partner is a fugitive, but other publications say she had turned against Margarita and told authorities that Karol had been abused for months. 

According to ACI Prensa, the Guanajuato Regional Prosecutor’s Office said there is “no evidence” that the motive for the boy’s murder was due to his clothing, contradicting local reports. The motive remains unclear.

Meantime, in Samambaia, Brazil, a 9-year-old boy named Rhuan Cândido was repeatedly stabbed, castrated in a home-made “gender reassignment” surgery, and beheaded by his mother and her lesbian lover.

Mydrim Jonles reports for The Sun, June 15, 2019, that in Samambaia, Brazil, about 20 miles from the capital Brasilia, Rosana Cândido, 27, and Kacyla Pessoa, 28, confessed to horrified cops of stabbing Rosana’s 9-year-old boy Rhuan over a dozen times, removing all the skin from his face before butchering his body.

The lesbian couple are said to have used a knife to try to gouge out the boy’s eyeballs to prevent possible recognition. They tried to burn the boy’s body parts on a barbecue, then stuffed his remains in a suitcase and dumped it in a sewer. Police also found Rhuan’s other body parts in two backpacks at the couple’s home.

The lesbian couple were charged with homicide, torture, concealing a corpse, as well as “tearing off” Rhuan’s penis a year ago during a home-made surgery using “rudimentary tools” to turn the boy into a girl. Local reports say: “After removing his penis, the women said they sewed an improvised version of the female organ onto the mutilated area.”

Rhuan’s dad, who lives in Acre, told police that after he lost custody of the boy 5 years ago, Rosana took the boy to live with Pessoa and her daughter. Pessoa’s 9-year-old daughter has been put into care.

Reportedly, Rosana said she “felt hatred and no love” for her son because he reminded her of her ex-husband who she claims had abused her. Rosana called her son a “burden” and a hindrance to her relationship with Pessoa.

Police chief Guilherme Melo told O Tempo the cruelty of the crime had shocked even hardened investigators: “She killed her son, quartered, decapitated, plucked the skin and tried to get rid of the body. It was a very terrible case.”

Oreo cookies pushing the gender identity myth with “ask me my pronouns” cookies

On the last day of Pride Month, Oreo cookies put this on their social media platforms:


“We’re proud to celebrate inclusivity for all gender identities and expressions. In partnership with NCTE, we’re giving away special edition Pronoun Packs and encouraging everybody to share their pronouns with #Pride today and every day.”

It’s not enough that children are indoctrinated in public education to believe they can magically change their biology. They are now faced with this farce while eating cookies. COOKIES.

Tell me Nabisco, when are you coming out with Oreos that celebrate those who believe they can change their species or should have been born disabled?

Lady Gaga talks importance of pronouns…

Lady Gaga and her Clinton buddies

Most folk I know don’t worry about using the correct pronouns. Yet if you live in a progressive utopia, you’ve got to worry about people’s feeeeeeeelings over biological facts.

Here in the south we’ve got a simple solution for progressive-mandated pronoun confusion: It’s called “y’all.”

From MSN: Lady Gaga was all about pride during her SiriusXM show at Harlem’s Apollo Theater Monday night.

In between songs, the “Born This Way” pop star gave a rousing speech about the importance of asking people’s pronouns and the necessity of gay pride. She also referenced transgender activist Marsha P. Johnson who was widely credited with throwing the first brick that sparked the Stonewall riots in 1969.

So it’s pride week. I wish it could exist 365 days of the year, but I’ll take a f–ing global week. Wow on Friday, the 50th anniversary of stonewall. Yeah, that was when our community said enough is enough,” Gaga said to cheers from the audience. “And all hail to so many including miss Marsha P. Johnson. What bravery, what courage. In the spirit of acceptance, the spirit of tolerance, the spirit of courage to be seen as you see yourself. I have learned so much over the years from all my fans. I feel so blessed, thank you for showing me and teaching me.”

“And I’ve learned something very important to those people now, and I wish to share this with everyone who’s listening, not just in this theater, but around the world,” she continued. “Ask the question: ‘What. is. your. pronoun.’ Because for a lot of people, it’s really hard, and their pronouns aren’t respected or they’re not asked, and for me I’ve grown and changed over the years in a lot of different ways — I’ve felt misunderstood in different ways. All our hardships are different; I don’t mean to compare; I just mean to say we’re in this together, and I’ve had a million reasons to want to give up, and sometimes if you’re lucky you just need one good reason to stick around.”

The concert was a special invitation-only performance for network subscribers and Pandora listeners and marks the first time the pop star has performed at the iconic venue. The show is also her first in New York City in almost two years.

Insanity: Democrat Julian Castro says biological males should have the right to have abortion

At last night’s first debate of Democratic aspirants to the presidency, Julian Castro, 44, the Obama administration’s HUD secretary took the Left’s insanity to a whole new level.

As reported by Gateway Pundit‘s Cristina Laila, Castro said:

“I believe in reproductive justice. Let’s just say that a woman, or let’s not forget, someone in the trans community — a trans-female, uh, is poor, doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t have the right to cover an abortion,”

A “trans-female” is a man who imagines himself to be female. In other words, a “trans-female” is a biological male — with XY chromosomes, and no eggs (ova), ovaries, or uterus. (I’m not referring to the artificial “uterus” of post-op trans-females, which are gouges or wounds.).

Hard to believe Castro is a graduate of Stanford University (1996) and Harvard Law School (2000).

Inclusiveness: ABC promoting 9-year-old boy dressed in drag as a message of “love”

Apparently dancing on stage as adult men throw money at this child is ‘spreading a message of love.’

People handing out money starts at 1:15 mark in above video.

From ABC 13: A 9-year-old living near Austin is spreading a message of love and inclusiveness as he performs as a drag queen. Keegan performs in drag as Kween KeeKee.

A third-grade teacher asked her class what they wanted to be when they grow up, and Keegan wrote in his memory book these words: “gender creative.”

Keegan said he can be himself when he’s wearing a dress. He also has a message for anyone who might struggle with their identity.

I want the world to know that you can be special, and you can be who you want to be,” Keegan said. “You can be a vegetarian, you can even be a veterinarian. You can be LGBTQ. You can be a drag queen, drag king.”

Keegan usually goes by the pronouns “he,” “him” and “his.” His family says Keegan has acceptance and support at a school in their conservative, Christian town outside Austin.

From our friends up north, eh: Parents say children can handle the “kink” at pride events

WARNING: The pictures that follow in this post are NSFW.

Remember their goal: Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

From HuffPo Canada: Each year, in the blazing sun of the Pride parade in Nelson, B.C., Pega Ren and her two young grandkids seek shade under their spinning rainbow parasols.

Ren, a semi-retired sex therapist, told HuffPost Canada the parasols were a magical find, and have come to symbolize the importance of this event for her family. Ren spoke joyfully of going to the dollar store, picking up all the rainbow ribbons and flags, decorating the roller skates and the stroller, and getting the costumes ready. “I can’t imagine a safer place for families to bring children,” she said of Pride.

A resounding chorus of voices — from within the queer community and not — would agree with this general sentiment about Pride parades and kids.

But in late May, one tweet turned it into a bigger conversation.
The post asked parade participants not to “sexualize” Pride and to leave their fetish and kink at home, for the sake of minors.

Anyone who has been to a parade has likely seen the procession of leather animal costumes, kinky costumes in every hue, and more skin than is normally exposed in public.

Although the post and account have since been deleted, the tweet got many people talking: How child-appropriate are Pride festivities? And why does this discussion hit a nerve for the LGBTQ+ community?

“At some level this has always been part of a much larger debate of what Pride is,” David Rayside, a retired politics and sexual diversity professor at the University of Toronto, told HuffPost Canada. “Pride has always had a kind of outrageous edge to it. And should we alter that? It is not the Santa Claus parade, and it never was. It shouldn’t be. It can’t be.”

That said, Rayside added, not only is it important for parents to bring their kids, but “I’ve seen thousands of kids at Pride, and I’ve never seen anyone fuss about what they see there.”

In fact, many parents would fuss at the thought of not bringing kids to these events.

“There is absolutely no reason not to take our kids to Pride — it’s a fun day, there are a lot of bubbles, rainbow streamers and enjoyable performances,” writer, educator, and publisher S. Bear Bergman told HuffPost Canada.

Plus, as queer parents, it’s one of their cultural festivals, added Bergman, who who attends Toronto Pride every year with his kids. “It’s their right as queer spawn. And as a parent, I might want to take my kids to Pride, because they might be lesbian, gay, bi, trans, queer or two-spirit.”

Pride events are dynamic — with so many notes being played at once, a degree of dissonance can also be expected. No one knows this better than Parker Chapple, Executive Director of Calgary Pride.

As Canada’s fourth-largest and fastest growing Pride celebration, Calgary Pride works hard to be family-friendly, including events like Reading with Royalty and puppet-making.

When asked how they go about balancing the needs of various segments of the community, Chapple (who uses they/ them pronouns) laughed. “It’s hands-down one of the most challenging roles that any Pride director has,” they said.

The tensions around who and what “belongs” at Pride are heightened this year, as the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots stands in contrast to the consumer culture that has become synonymous with the season. After the June 1969 raid of New York gay bar the Stonewall Inn, a series of uprisings began, and sparked the gay liberation movement. The first Pride march took place one year after those raids.

“As an activist, I’ve always been acutely aware of what the parade and the festival is rooted in,” Chapple said.

And I’ve always passed that opportunity on to my children as a learning opportunity, so they can appreciate the work, the heartache, the celebration that our community put into gaining protection.”

Politics have a prominent place in Pride, Rayside said, but “it is also about outrage,” a time when some in the community express this “in ways that confront normal sensibilities.”

The freedom to do so is embedded within LGBTQ+ culture and history. These expressions are the most colourful during the parade.

Bergman defended these elements and their right to exist at a kid-friendly event. “First of all, nobody likes nakedness more than children,” Bergman said.

“On the list of things that I don’t want my children ever to be exposed to are: Compulsory heterosexuality, demonstrations of sexism, demonstrations of racism, demonstrations of ablism, violence. These are all way higher on the list than some homosexual’s tuchus.”

Putting on her sex therapist hat, Ren emphasized that Pride, from kink to nakedness, is an excellent opportunity for parents to do unbiased sex education. Bergman also pointed out that many children don’t even interpret most of what they’re seeing in a Pride parade as sexual, but rather as dress-up or fun. “Children benefit from seeing people loving one another, from seeing diversity and inclusion. Children suffer from seeing violence and fear, hatred and divisiveness,” Ren said.

“We found and built our tribe at these gatherings.”
