If you do mention Christianity, there is a now a great chance you might lose your job. It’s worth bearing in mind for North Americans that in the United Kingdom there are also multifarious laws in place such that you could also be charged with a crime. In this case, it was just Victoria Wasteney’s professionalism that was ridiculed and impugned.
The terrible facts around this case include:
- Ms. Wasteney sharing Christian fellowship with a Muslim co-worker
- Ms. Wasteney praying for the Muslim co-worker
Now that I think about it I didn’t really need to bullet-point the facts of the case as this is about all there is. The schizophrenic Daily Mail has their details [see here]. Naturally, in the UK, this contemptible human-rights abuse of a fellow-employee within the state-supported National Health Service (NHS) resulted in Ms. Wasteney being charged of harassing and bullying by the Muslim co-worker, which resulted in Ms. Wasteney being suspended for nine months.
Thankfully, many countries in Europe now must consider an extra layer of supra-national legislation within the European Union (EU). Naturally, even within EU law, this contemptible human-rights abuse of a fellow-employee within the state-supported National Health Service (NHS) resulted in no justice for either Ms. Wasteney, or the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Victoria “Dude, Where’s My Country?” Wasteney I think says it best when it comes to Britain’s new, progressive, multi-layered system of justice:
What the court clearly failed to do was to say how, in today’s politically correct world, any Christian can even enter into a conversation with a fellow employee on the subject of religion and not, potentially, later end up in an employment tribunal. [Victoria Wasteney]
