Christian Woman Loses Job After Giving Muslim Woman A Book Explaining Her Faith

Victoria Wasteney, a 39-year-old senior occupational therapist, had lost her job after developing a friendship with a Muslim female colleague and giving her something she thought was special. Yet, once she had given the Muslim woman the gift, the recipient reported it to the authorities. As a resort, Wasteney was found guilty of "harassing and bullying."

Perhaps Wasteney thought that Islam was just like any other religion. Maybe she believed that if she treated Muslims with tolerance and acceptance, that she would receive the same in return.

Yet, it took several years to learn that Islam has special privileges in the West and is a supremacist ideology. Wasteney was suspended for nine months from her job at the East London NHS Foundation Trust after being found guilty of harassing and bullying her Muslim colleague, Enya Nawaz, in 2014. Her employer, St. John Howard Centre in Homerton, argued that Wasteney had terrorized her coworker by inviting her to church, praying with her, and giving her a prayer-book after Nawaz asked her about her Christian faith.

For starters, the two casually discussed Islam and Christianity and the local church’s work in the community against human trafficking.

Wasteney even prayed for Nawaz's "peace and healing," which Nawaz willingly accepted. In addition, Wasteney says the discussions only started because Nawaz confronted her about her Christian beliefs. Even though the NHS admitted that Nawaz had been happy to discuss religion equally with Wasteney and had never given her superiors evidence to support her allegations of harassment, the NHS quickly ruled that only the Christian employee was to be reprimanded.

Then, last year, Wasteney took her case to an employment tribunal to contest the NHS’s decision to suspend her for 9 months, only to be told that her employer had not discriminated against her.

Furthermore, a judge gave Wasteney the chance to appeal her employer's decision stating the punishment may have violated the European Convention on Human Rights’ defense of freedom of speech and religion. On Wednesday, however, Judge Eady QC denied the appeal, stating that the employer was justified in its decision to punish Wasteney for her religious discussion.

Wasteney said, “What the court clearly failed to do was to say how, in today’s politically correct world, any Christian can even enter into a conversation with a fellow employee on the subject of religion and not, potentially, later end up in an employment tribunal. If someone sends you friendly text messages, how is one to know that they are offended? I had no idea that I was upsetting her. I believe the NHS singled me out for discipline because Christianity is so disrespected. Previously, a Christian worship service that I set up for patients was closed down, but accommodation for Muslims to practice their faith wholly facilitated and encouraged.”

It seems the bias and preference is clear in this case. Freedom of speech was created to protect speech someone might find offensive. Yet, Western societies are openly accepting of a religion that demands the destruction of Christianity.
