U.K. doctor fired after refusing to refer to theoretical ‘six-foot-tall bearded man’ as ‘madam,’ sues government

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

The doctor is now suing the government at an employment tribunal for discrimination on the grounds of his religious belief. The hearing in Birmingham was told how Mackereth believes transgenderism is a “delusional belief” and an ideology “which I disbelieve and detest.”

He told the hearing: “The very fact a doctor can be pulled off 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.
