A Christian physician lost his job in a British government agency after he said he would refuse to call a bearded man who is six feet tall "madam," according to court proceedings.

The Telegraph reported Wednesday that Dr. David Mackereth, a disability benefits assessor in the Department of Work and Pensions, is claiming religious discrimination over his firing.

Mackereth, a Christian, says his contract was terminated after he was asked in a conversation with a line manager whether or not he would address a man who was six feet tall and had a beard by female pronouns like "she" and "Mrs."
