A Christian teacher was arrested last Monday (5th) in County Westmeath, Ireland, for violating a court order that prohibited him from teaching or even attending the Wilson’s Hospital School campus.
Professor Enoch Burke was barred from teaching again because he refused to call a student transitioning gender a “she”.
The educator’s decision made the school choose to place him on paid administrative leave until a disciplinary process was completed.
Burke was at the school last Friday (2) and, as a result, Superior Court Judge Michael Quinn issued an arrest warrant in case the teacher re-enters the school; what happened on Monday when he was found in an empty classroom.
According to the Irish Times, upon being arrested and taken to court, the educator declared that he was persecuted for “not calling a boy a girl” and explained his position on transsexuality.
– Transsexuality goes against my Christian belief. It is contrary to the Scriptures, contrary to the ethics of the Church of Ireland and my school – he added, citing that the school is part of a church, therefore, it is a Christian school.
