An employment tribunal has heard the case of a school chaplain who was fired and reported to an anti-terrorism unit because he preached a sermon saying it was okay to question LGBT ideas.

Revd Dr Bernard Randall, a former chaplain of Christ’s College, Cambridge, is taking Trent College – a CofE school – to court for discrimination, harassment, victimisation, and unfair dismissal.

As previously reported by ET, Randall delivered a sermon in the school’s chapel in June 2019 on the subject of ‘Competing ideologies’.
