Fired For Faith

A Christian worker in London is paying a heavy price for speaking freely about faith in the workplace. Government worker Duke Amachree was suspended from his job after telling a terminally ill client to "put her faith in God" for her health.

The woman filed a complaint, leading the Wandsworth Borough Council of London's decision to suspend Amachree after nearly 18 years on the job. "My ID was removed from me and I was escorted out of the premises," he recalled. "I didn't know what to make of it. I was speechless." Amachree said following his suspension, he was told not to mention religion at work or to "ever talk about God" and say "God bless." Three months later, he was fired. His case is under review at the present time.
