If it was black history month, or disabled history, or heck even jewish or catholic history month and someone angrily replied with scripture that said black people/disabled/jews/christians were sinners, I’m pretty sure they’d be fired too.
How do you know that he replied with anger? I didn’t read that in the story. Seemed like being fair to me.
“He was then accused of failing to show respect and tolerance to fellow officers and barred from using the internal message system.”
Where is it moral or a law that one must be respectful and/or tolerant?
“A few months later, he was further questioned after he put a biblical text on his computer screen, reading: ‘Jesus is the light of the world, only the enemy kills, steals and destroys.’”
What was that about respect and tolerance again?
“And in April, he was interviewed again about his beliefs after he circulated a link to an American Christian helpline on the internal communication system.”
No harrassment here.
**"But a spokesman for Norfolk Police said: ‘We welcome people of all beliefs and races into the workforce and fully respect everyone’s views.
'However, the force will not tolerate any form of homophobic behaviour.
'While we fully respect the officer has strong beliefs, it is only correct that he respects the beliefs and wishes of others.’"**
Did they respect his beliefs when they sent him emails telling him to wear ribbons in favor of gay history month, or did they just tell him to deal with it?
This is nonsense. And one sided.
