Facebook Posts Caused Dismissal

Higgs posted homophobic and transphobic content on Facebook, leading to her dismissal from the school. Farmor’s School denied that Higgs’ faith was the cause of her dismissal but cited the offensive language used in her posts as the reason for her termination.

Employment Judge Derek Reed rejected Higgs’ claims of religious discrimination, stating that the school fired her for making “homophobic and transphobic” comments, not for being a Christian. Judge Reed upheld the school’s reasoning that Higgs was dismissed due to “a genuine belief on the part of the school that she had committed gross misconduct” and the potential negative impact on the pupils, parents, staff, and the wider community.

Offensive Content on Facebook

Higgs shared a petition from ultra-conservative anti-LGBTQ+ lobbying group CitizenGo, which accused the United Nations of “pushing perverted sexual education onto kids, destroying their minds and morals”. The petition called to “stop supporting LGBT indoctrination”.

Higgs also accused schools of “brainwashing our children” with inclusive education about different relationships, claiming that children are taught that “all relationships are equally valid and ‘normal'”, that same-sex marriage is the same as traditional marriage, and gender is a matter of choice, not biology. Higgs encouraged her followers to sign the petition, stating that “it’s happening in our local primary school now”.
