A government-funded college in Bristol, England, fired a Christian teacher after a student reported that he was offended by her comments. When the student asked about homosexuality, the teacher said that, as a Christian, she ‘personally’ believed homosexual activity was against the Lord’s will but that God loves every person regardless of sexual preference. The Chief Safeguarding Officer of the college then reported her to a government counter-terrorism agency as a ‘radicalization threat.’ -GEG

A Christian teacher in Bristol was fired and reported as a “radicalisation threat” after she answered questions from pupils about her beliefs, an employment tribunal has heard.

Svetlana Powell was dismissed from the T2 Apprenticeship Academy in Bristol in July 2016 after leaders at the government-funded college said students had been offended by comments the teacher made.

Bristol Employment Tribunal heard that a pupil who was being persistently disruptive brought up Mrs. Powell’s religion and proceeded to quiz her on her personal beliefs in an “argumentative” way, LifeSiteNews reported.

Asked her views on homosexuality, the teacher said that as a Christian, she “personally” believed homosexual activity was against the Lord’s will, but that God loves every person regardless of their sexual preference.

The same student, who had been warned about his misbehaviour throughout the day, told Mrs. Powell that another pupil in the class was a lesbian, to which the teacher replied that God loved her.

Two days later, Mrs. Powell, a teacher of some 17 years experience, learned she was fired for “gross misconduct”, and that she would not be allowed to appeal her dismissal.

Chief Safeguarding Officer at the college, Sian Prigg, told the tribunal students complained that they were “brainwashed and preached to” during the incident, prompting her to report Mrs. Powell to the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, Prevent.

The Christian Legal Centre (CLC), which is supporting the educator in suing the T2 Academy for loss of earnings, said Mrs. Powell was fired because of her Christian beliefs, comparing her dismissal to how the college dealt with complaints against a teacher described as an “outspoken left-wing atheist”.

March 1, 2021 NY Post and Breitbart 2

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris savaged President Trump for keeping “kids in cages.” But now they’re doing the same thing by housing 700 migrant teens in some of the very same facilities they decried. Biden is ending Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program for Central American asylum seekers, which took pressure off the border.

So, you gotta ask yourself: Why would the English crown persecute “Christians”, when they themselves lay claim to Christianity? Moreover, what an ’embarrassment’ to the crown, considering the long history of English USURPATION of papal authority for MONEY (= King Henry VIII & royal descendants), by creating THEIR OWN CHRISTIAN STATE RELIGION (= Anglican Religion – “Let each man go do the devil himself!” (Mary)). So now we have CHRISTIANS PERSECUTING CHRISTIANS. That’s nothing new! It happens EVERY DAY TODAY in Zionist Israel. Is it any wonder?? Considering how the Talmudic financier had taken-over the English “church’s” highest offices over… Read more »
