Christian teacher sacked over Facebook posts loses discrimination case
A Christian school teacher who was dismissed over Facebook posts that were critical of transgenderism and sex education has lost her case at employment tribunal.

During a weeklong hearing last month, Kristie Higgs argued that her dismissal by Farmor's School in Fairford, Gloucestershire, amounted to religious discrimination but in its ruling today, Bristol Employment Tribunal disagreed.

The judgment concludes that the 44-year-old's dismissal was not related to the Christian beliefs she shared on social media but rather "the result of a genuine belief on the part of the school that she had committed gross misconduct". ...

Perhaps you remember Simon attempting to get Jesus to somehow avoid the Cross and not die.
Simply NOT Enough room to tell of the Immeasurable Worth of Jesus Christ and the Gospel of His Kingdom.... Why He is and it is worth dying for, let alone merely suffering some embarresment
Thank you for your grace in allowing me to have my opinion.

I will stand for Christ no matter what. I will proudly proclaim the Gospel in any manner He desires me to, no matter the consequences. If I lose all for the sake of the Gospel, so be it. It's a small price to pay for thanking Him for saving me.

But...I will not lose my family or my life because I railed out against Islam, homosexuality, or the gov't. Those are secondary issues and are not worth being persecuted over. Like I said, if I am put on the spot and asked to give an answer, will I tuck tail and run? No. I will give a truthful answer according to the Bible and what I have learned therein. But being politically and socially active won't save souls.

Let me be as humbly candid as possible.

1. We are Christians, pilgrims, slaves, and strangers on this earth. This earth is not our home. Our home is in heaven. Therefore, we are only here passing through. Just as an ambassador who visits a foreign country shouldn't be looking for work and setting down roots. It's not his home.

2. We are called to be lights in the darkness. We are called to be examples. How? By being voiceboxes yelling from the corners and rooftops of the world? No, by being examples of what it means to emulate Christ. We are told that we have no business telling the world what to do. Are we called to be political activists? No. If we are placed in a position where we must give testimony, then speak out, but don't think for a minute that this is your mission. You change the world through the Gospel, not through social reformation.

3. Jesus had a mission on earth. We are commanded to act like Jesus but no do what He did. There's a huge difference between the two. We are supposed to emulate His character, not His actions. Jesus was crucified because He was THE light in a dark world and exposed the sin and rebellion of the world through His words. The Gospel is an offensive thing. Most hate it.

I have no more room...

Okay, let me politely disagree with your premise of being heard if you are nice.

I would refer you to our Lord Jesus Christ?
Was He "nice" loving truthful compassionate understanding in short all the qualitites people ought to have felt safe with this friend of sinners.

What did that get Him
Yes! From some broken hearted repentance and love for being forgiven so much

From others, oh they heard by the way, didn't they and hated Him for the truth, with them ... Crucified

Just had a Jewish man speak to me about Germany in WW2, who holds the opinion what the Nazis did was evil and a greater evil those who stood by and in depraved indifference said and did nothing.

Think about it
Blessing

For Herod had laid hold of John and bound him, and put him in prison for the sake of Herodias, his brother Philip’s wife. Because John had said to him, “It is not lawful for you to have her.”
Matthew 14:3‭-‬4

I suppose John the Baptist should have kept his mouth shut. He went and got himself fired!

True, very true. I find it frustrating though how it seems that everyone has their opinion (mine included), yet each one of our opinions seems to be the truth. We aren't necessarily arguing for truth's sake but for our opinion's sake and very few of us are willing to prayerfully seek God's voice on whether we are right of wrong.

I'm not going to hash all this over again with a fresh combatant. I've said all I want to say, and I'm going to leave it at that. Agree with me or not, so be it. I've had my say, and I believe the Gospel is just that, the Gospel. I'm not going to err in spreading the Gospel over social issues when it doesn't belong there.

Relativism and circumstantial ethics seem to have found their place here as well. That in my humble opinion is sad. Truth is supposed to be absolute but it seems it's far from it.

This woman...did not proclaim the Gospel, but ranted about the indoctrination of the LGBTQ agenda in the school her boy was attending. It wasn't her place..
Oh yes it IS her place to speak on anything that pertains to HER child. She not only has the right, but that responsibility is required of her from God. Had she not had a child there, then maybe she could be considered a third party opinion. She has every right to proclaim it from the rooftops and rally other parents in calling for changes. If she doesn't get results, she can homeschool.
The tag team duo of John & Watcher argue that this is a third party addressing a "social" issue.

Watcher, in trying to extricate the mask issue from "the gospel," skewed the gospel so thin that ALL issue becomes a SOCIAL JUSTICE issue. To Watcher, John the Baptist was, "the greatest prophet of all proclaiming the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." Why did Watcher totally miss JB's condemnation of adultery? That was the point! We have a parallel case here. But being polished debaters, they will point out there's no parallel between JB and this lady. Both adultery & homosexuality are found together in the bible. That's the parallel. Watcher has already claimed one to be ungospel! That's why

I seem to recall another "angry nut" who got himself into hot water with His society for presenting the word of the God. I believe his name was Jeremiah. He was routinely told to shut up and sit down. He could not keep back from prophesying so he would not be silent. His was a rough road.

Now Kristie Huggs is not a prophet, certainly not saying she is. But her role and our role is akin to Jeremiah's or maybe Ezekiel's. If we see someone busy killing themselves - quickly, slowly, or eternally - we're on the hook to say something or that person's blood is on our hands.

Whether or not the words are received graciously has no bearing on our responsibility. Otherwise, we find ourselves trying to be God and work out the outcome we feel is appropriate..,but only the Lord is sovereign. It could be that our words will be further evidence at that White Throne judgment for those who did not turn.

The bigger problem here is that there is a blurring of the boundary between public and private speech. A semi-private expression is now evidence to "cancel" an employee. Thought Police.

Fine. I have no problem with protecting your children from evil, hence why we homeschool, but it's my contention that she could have done it a better way. Instead of making her gripes known on a world-wide platform she should have gone to the school and removed her son and perhaps homeschooled him herself?

It IS a social justice issue, James. Can you in all honesty say that speaking out against the agenda of the LGBTQ group is proclaiming the Gospel? If you think that this woman should be included in Foxe's Book of Martyrs, then you don't know what the Gospel truly is.

Where’s the command to post our thoughts about the news?

So far I have yet to see rants on her part

There was no redress of grievances to the government in Biblical times so of course it doesn’t speak to it.

In loco paresis is a Latin term that describes what a teacher does. So yes the parents have every right to speak out against what is being taught.

Read your Hre Testament and tell me where Paul said the world is to go to hell in a hand basket.

I Corinthians 5 does not mean we are to ge silent at all the evil about us. That’s hiding our light under a bushel

Be so kind as to share a link to her anger/ ire because I can’t even find on pro LBTQ sites about this incident. Thanks

So true. She's a teacher, so she would have known about the dangers of LGBTQ teaching.
She got her ire up for some reason, and now it's gotten her fired. Homeschooling is the only way to go if you want to protect your children from the devilish onslaught. I don't feel sorry for those who climb to the rooftops of social media and rant away. It does no good and it just makes you out to be an angry nut.

Sorry John you must be privy to far more than what is stated in this article for your statement to even make sense
I guess you can look at it this way: you are given one commission on this earth, that commission being to spread the Gospel throughout the world. Simple. We are never told to be political activists and in fact, we're told in 1 Cor. 5: 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? 13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.

We are told we have no right to judge those who are outside the church. The world is supposed to go to hell in a handbasket. Who are we to try and change things outside of preaching the Gospel?
