Suspended GB News presenter, Reverend Calvin Robinson, who was dismissed from the Royal Academy of Dance for his opposition to a drag queen storytelling session for children, has secured an £8,000 out-of-court settlement. The Mail has the story.
It came after he attended a rally organised by conservative group Turning Point U.K. against the show, starring drag queen That Girl, being held at a pub in South London earlier this year. The protest turned into a violent clash with LGBT activists.
Mr. Robinson reported on the protest on his Calvin’s Common Sense Crusade on GB News.
Tim Arthur, Chief Executive of the academy, and trustees, wrote to tell Robinson he was being thrown off the committee adding: “We cannot condone the way in which you have chosen to express your views”.
Former teacher Mr. Robinson, a deacon in the Free Church of England, took legal action, supported by the Christian Legal Centre, claiming harassment and discrimination on the grounds of his Christian beliefs. The RAD settled last week before the case reached court.
Last night, he told the Mail on Sunday: “I am pleased that the bullies did not win and that they have learnt you cannot push people out for holding traditional views – Christian views.
“It is sad to see that, on the one hand, they insist on pushing these toxic ideologies upon young people, and on the other hand call themselves inclusive while excluding anyone with traditionally British views.”
