He was then arrested Monday for violating a court order barring him from teaching or being present at the school until the results of a disciplinary hearing.

“I love my school, with its motto Res Non Verba, ‘Actions not words,’ but I am here today because I said I would not call a boy a girl,” Burke told the court.

Judge Michael Quinn found Burke guilty of violating a court order and sent him to Mountjoy Prison for the time being.

The teacher told the judge that “it is insanity” that he would sent to prison for refusing to give up his Christian beliefs.

Quinn later went to court where he told the judge he couldn’t comply with the court order because it violates his conscience.

“I am a teacher and I don’t want to go to prison,” Burke told the court. “I want to be in my classroom today, that’s where I was this morning when I was arrested.”

He added: “Transgenderism is against my Christian belief. It is contrary to the scriptures, contrary to the ethos of the Church of Ireland and of my school.”
