Christian Homeless Advisor Loses Job Appeal; Was Fired for Mentioning God in the Workplace

A Christian homeless adviser has lost his case against a London Council that dismissed him for mentioning God in the workplace, according to the Christian Today website.

A tribunal ruled that Wadsworth Council had acted reasonably in dismissing Duke Amachree for gross misconduct after he suggested to a client suffering from a terminal illness that she should not give up hope by trying to put her faith in God.

The tribunal also found that the Council had not discriminated against Mr. Amachree on religious grounds.

Mr. Amachree had worked as a homelessness prevention officer with Wadsworth Council for 18 years before his dismissal in January 2009 -- two days after he was reported by his client.
