Teacher Who Refused To Using Trans Student’s Preferred Pronouns, To Spend Christmas In Jail

Fact checked
Teacher Enoch Burke in Jail

Enoch Burke, the Irish teacher who has been in jail since September after he refused to refer to one of his “transgender” students using their preferred pronouns, will most likely spend Christmas in prison

Burke, an evangelical Christian, had requested to be released from prison ahead of Christmas during a sitting of the country’s High Court last week. But according to Irish state-owned broadcaster RTÉ, the judge’s decision means that Burke will remain in jail for the Christmas period.

Breitbart reports: Burke had initially been jailed back in September after an incident where he reportedly refused to use a “transgender” pupil’s preferred pronouns, which eventually led to him ignoring a court order that he stay away from the school he taught in.

Although the teacher reportedly claimed that the order flew in the face of his religious freedom, the High Court reportedly refused to consider this line of argument, before ordering that the teacher be jailed until he purges his contempt.

So far however, Burke has remained steadfast in his claim that the court order violates his religious freedoms, with the Irish Independent reporting the man as asking the sitting judge to release him in consideration of the religious significance of this time of year.

“I would beg of this court to free me from this prison,” Burke reportedly told the court, insisting again that the court’s order that he stays away from his school flies in the face of his religious freedom as guaranteed by the Irish constitution.

“I believe in the courts system and I believe in the administration of justice,” he remarked. “But when I am commanded by the court to accept an order that denies me my religious freedom, I cannot in all good conscience comply with that.”

“The fact of the matter is I was requested by principal Niamh McShane that it was expected of me to participate in transgenderism and to call a 15-year-old boy ‘they’ or ‘a girl’,” he continued. “It is something I cannot do in all good conscience as it goes against my religious beliefs.”

“I am not a thief. I am not a murderer. I am not a drug dealer. The reason that I am in prison today is because I refused to leave the school I worked in when I was suspended solely on account of my religious beliefs,” he went on to say.

However, Mr Justice Conor Dignam refused the request, saying that it remained the case that Burke does not want to obey an order issued by the court, and that he was “not going to debate” whether the order actually conflicts with Burke’s religious freedoms.


  1. Cultural Marxists encourage abortion, birth control, divorce, homosexuality, “carrier women,” drugs, miscegenation, the destruction of the traditional family, and unrestricted immigration of racial foreigners into white countries. This is a reflection of what the Cultural Marxists preach: white reproduction is evil, and that which prevents white reproduction is good.

  2. 1) Ire land had the highest consumption of pot per head of population in the world preceding their historic referendum on abortion as a Catholic country. Just by chance? Not likely.
    2) Americas SCOTUS made the finding that the only religious freedoms ANYONE could have are those that they agree with. They made the Court the highest religion in America in other words The Rule of Law Supreme over every religion.
    Ire lands judiciary have clearly adopted the same principles.
    However, having said that, the respectful thing as a Christian to do is to accept another person’s gender identity as they want to be identified.
    No one truly kniws how another person feels .
    There are a lot of ingrained negative values in the world which won’t be any worse off for disregarding.

    • So all the fruits, nuts and freaks in the world need to be catered to, coddled and supported no matter what their bazar, malfunctioning brains come up with? And the whole world is to put aside ALL their own personal feelings and moral values in order to console and pamper those who are unwilling to accept who or what they really are? Does it not sound strange to you that the great majority of any population should be forced to follow the demands of the less-than-one-percent oddities of said population?

  3. The Jew-Nazi European Soviet Union is the same evil
    Nazi Dictatorship that the Jew-Nazi Russian Soviet Union was!

    The Russians FINALLY grew some balls and kicked the Jewish
    Nazis out of Russia!

    The European Pussies will never do the same!
    They LOVE their Jewish “gods” and Masters!

  4. there is no such thing as “transeffnanything” to be forced to say differently is compelled speech and therefore authoritarian the deviants are an extinction level threat as they cant and wont be able to repopulate as they are a dead end
