Nicholas Meriwether, who teaches philosophy and religion at Shawnee State University in Ohio was reportedly chastised by faculty at the school after he referred to a transgender male student as “sir” – an “offense” that Meriweather was told would result in his firing if he didn’t use the “correct” gender pronoun preferred by the student in question.
Rather than roll over and submit to such insanity, Meriweather decided to sue the school, citing violations of his religious liberty as a Christian professor to abide by the natural law governance of there being only two genders: male and female.
“In January 2018, a male student demanded that Dr. Meriwether address him as a woman because he identified as such and threatened to have Dr. Meriwether fired if he declined,” reads the suit filed by Meriwether and his lawyer.
“To accede to these demands would have required Dr. Meriwether to communicate views regarding gender identity that he does not hold, that he does not wish to communicate, and that would contradict (and force him to violate) his sincerely held Christian beliefs.”
Insane transgender student violently threatened Meriwether after class
Something else you should know is that the polite discourse that Meriwether strives to maintain in his classroom, always referring to his students as either “sir” or “miss” as a sign of respect, was grossly violated by the transgender student in question.
After the class period during which Meriwether referred to the gender dysphoric individual as “sir,” that same individual approached Meriwether in a hostile manner, and proceeded to circle around and threaten him.
According to reports, the transgender lunatic called Meriwether a “c***,” proceeded by multiple tirades to school faculty demanding that the “crime” of not using the proper gender pronoun be referred for a full Title IX investigation.
When Meriwether stated that he would refer to the deranged student by “its” last name instead, that student was not satisfied, and continued to raise hell with the administration for not having “its” demands met by Meriwether.
“According to the lawsuit, the university ‘punished’ Meriwether for ‘expressing views that differ from its own orthodoxy and for declining to express its mandated ideological message,” reports The Daily Wire, adding that the school was “continuing in their role as the self-appointed grammar police.”
“Defendants threaten to punish him again if he continues to express his views,” the suit added. “Under their policies, all professors must refer to each student – both in and out of class – using whatever pronouns the student claims reflect his gender identity.”
The only way to stop the transgender madness is to challenge it
Meriwether has repeatedly tried to reason with school officials, but to no avail. So he now has no other choice but to challenge such demands in full court, in the process defending his own right not to be bullied into kowtowing to the unreasonable whims of the LGBT mafia and its “academic” enablers at the faculty level of today’s far-left indoctrination camps, also known as “colleges” and “universities.”
“I am a Christian. As such, it is my sincerely held religious belief, based on the Bible’s teachings, that God created human beings as either male or female, that this gender is fixed in each person from the moment of conception, and that it cannot be changed,” Meriwether maintains in his defense.
