School chaplain reported to police as a terror threat for preaching sermon on tolerance and free expression of ideas


Supported by the Christian Legal Centre, Rev. Dr Bernard Randall, a former chaplain of Christ’s College, Cambridge, is taking Trent College to court for discrimination, harassment, victimisation and unfair dismissal after the school reported him – without his knowledge – to the government anti-terror watchdog for a sermon he gave at the school on ‘identity politics’.

Bernard commented: “My story sends a message to other Christians that you are not free to talk about your faith. It seems it is no longer enough to just ‘tolerate’ LGBT ideology. You must accept it without question and no debate is allowed without serious consequences. Someone else will decide what is and what isn’t acceptable, and suddenly you can become an outcast, possibly for the rest of your life.”
