(Worthy News) - A doctor has been “sacked” as a medical assessor for a government department after refusing to renounce his Christian belief that gender is determined at birth, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

Dr David Mackereth has worked for 26 years as an NHS doctor but was told he could not be employed as a Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) disability assessor if he refused to identify patients as being of a sex that they did not see themselves as.

The 55-year-old father of four believes sex is genetic and biological, so established at birth. [ Source: UK Telegraph (Read More...) ]

  1. Integrity isn't integrity unless it, at least, takes a stand that might cause us to lose something valuable to ourselves.

    It is an honor to be so treated for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

    He should praise God and thank Him to have been so chosen to be honored in this manner.

    May our God honor and bless him and all of his, keeping him and his safe and well provided for. That his enemies might turn back in shame at having even tried to coerce him into giving up his faith/religion.
