Those poor blacks… whites went to their countries and forced gay sex on them!
A Christian teacher has claimed she was “treated like a criminal” after being sacked by a Church of England school.
Glawdys Leger, a modern languages teacher, was sacked by Bishop Justice CofE School in Bromley, Kent, in May 2022.
She says her sacking was because she refused to teach “extreme” LGBT lessons and because she shared her Christian beliefs on these issues with pupils.
The 43-year-old had objected to the content of year 7 lessons, which had been incorporated into Religious Education (RE) classes.
The Christian Legal Centre (CLC), which is supporting the 43-year-old, said lesson materials included “extreme content on gender identity with themes that begin to suggest to children that humans can be born in the wrong body” and introduced controversial gender identities such as pansexual, asexual, intersex and transgender.
Children were also reportedly encouraged to be allies of the queer community.
Ms Leger told pupils in her class, during a discussion on LGBTQ issues, that God made humans male and female, and that she believed LGBTQ practice was sinful.
The CLC said that she raised her conscientious objection about the lesson content but her concerns were “brushed aside and ignored”.
The school is part of the Aquinas Church of England Education Trust, which reported Ms Leger to the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA) after a complaint was made about Ms Leger.
A ‘fitness to practice’ hearing was held by the TRA on Monday. She faces being struck off and unable to teach again if the regulating body finds against her.
Speaking ahead of the hearing, she said, “I was treated like a criminal and as though I was a danger for expressing my Christian beliefs.
Fun fact: Anglicanism has nothing to do with Christianity
“I have great compassion for LGBT people, especially for those suffering from gender confusion. I cannot, however, in good conscience teach or say things I believe are contrary to my faith, for example saying that same sex sexual relationships are good and/or affirming people in their gender confusion.
“I am certain that I have not shown, and never would show, any hatred or lack of love towards LGBT people.
“True compassion and love is to be able to speak the truth to people irrespective of their sexuality. I would never discriminate against anyone, but what the school was compelling teachers to promote, teach and celebrate these issues, which I could not do.
“For Christians it is important to remain an ally of God rather than being an ally of things that are against God’s Laws and Commandments. It is not ‘inclusive’ if pupils at a Christian school are barred from understanding what Christian belief is and means on these very serious issues.”
Yeah, they know the arguments. They’re not just going to all of a sudden “wake up to see what you’re saying.”
