A doctor lost his job due to his Christian convictions after he refused to address transgender people using pronouns relating to their chosen sex.

Dr David Mackereth 56-year-old, from Dudley, West Midlands, is alleged to have been suspended in June 2018 due to his religious beliefs.

Mr. David took the matter to employment tribunal and felt he had to take a stand against what is expected of him by the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Dr. Mackereth, whose legal case is being supported by the Christian Legal Centre, claims the DWP has breached the Equality Act and his right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

In an interview with BBC Radio, Dr Mackereth, said: “I think that we have to treat transgender people very, very sensitively.

“But we also have to act according to the truth.

“I don’t believe that a person can change sex. I don’t believe that a person can be trapped in the wrong body.

“I do believe that, as a Christian, we have a duty to act according to what is true.

“So yes we have to treat transgender people with compassion but we also have to act according to the truth.

The case is being looked at the court at the present.
