Ireland: Judge Jails Christian Schoolteacher for Not Calling a Boy a Girl

Often, we can get a hint of what the Left may be trying to do in the U.S. next by looking at Europe. Ireland is the most recent example of the crazy Old World informing the radicals in the New World. 

According to the New York Post, “A teacher in Ireland has been suspended from work and then jailed for contempt of court after he refused to use the correct pronouns to address a transgender student.”

Yes, police arrested school teacher Enoch Burke, took him away, and threw him in jail for not doing something so monumentally stupid it staggers the rational, liberty-oriented mind to contemplate, especially in the U.S.—so far. 

 It’s also chilling that law enforcement would comply with such a blatant violation of common sense. It brings to mind the Voltaire quote, “Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.” 

Believing the law can enforce calling a student by some gender-fluid concoction of self-assigned pronouns is absurd. Burke told the judge, “[I] am here today because I would not call a boy a girl.” 

In a demonstration of how important it is to monitor all branches of government for lapses into stupid, a High Court judge found Burke “guilty of violating an order made by the High Court last week and sent him to Mountjoy Prison, where he will remain until either he purges his contempt or the court gives further orders.”

Apparently, his “contempt” has to do with radical leftism’s international war on Christianity. “The teacher remained defiant in the face of jail time, telling the judge that ‘it is insanity’ that he would be led out of the courtroom and taken to prison for refusing to give up his Christian beliefs.”
