CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: Who is Dr. Johnson Varkey? Associate Pastor and Biology Professor Reinstated after being Fired for Teaching Sex is Determined by X and Y Chromosomes [#DrJohnsonVarkey #JohnsonVarkey #DrVarkey]

The law firm representing Dr. Johnson Varkey stated that he will resume teaching by this fall.

A biology professor who was fired from a Texas community college for teaching students that the X and Y chromosomes determine sex has been reinstated.

The First Liberty Institute, a law firm that defends religious liberty for Americans, reported in a news release on Tuesday that St. Philip’s College in San Antonio, Texas, has reinstated Dr. Johnson Varkey, a former adjunct professor, a year after he was fired.

Dr. Johnson Varkey, the host of the Bible teaching ministry Rehoboth Voice, is the Associate Pastor of International Bible Church (IBC) in San Antonio, Texas.

Dr. Varkey spent several years as a research scientist before becoming a Bible preacher and teacher.

He currently teaches biology at Our Lady of the Lake University and St Phillips College, in addition to his teaching vocation at IBC.

The legal firm stated that they filed a discrimination complaint with the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against St. Philip’s and the Alamo Community College District (ACCD) earlier this year.

First Liberty said that the parties had achieved a “favorable settlement,” which, “among other provisions,” guaranteed Varkey’s return to the classroom teaching by fall 2024.

On Nov. 28, 2022, 4 of Varkey’s students stormed out of his class when he asserted that sex was determined by X and Y chromosomes, as he had done dozens of times before.

First Liberty said that his courses are backed by his degree and expertise in his area, as well as his religious convictions, but “throughout his employment, he never discussed with any student his personal views—religious or otherwise—on human gender or sexuality.”

Varkey taught as an adjunct professor at St. Philip’s College for 22 years, teaching the same principles for which he was fired this year, according to First Liberty.

At the time, First Liberty claimed that the college engaged in unlawful religious discrimination in employment under the First Amendment and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, arguing that Varkey “believes that he is obligated as a Christian and as a professor to teach accurate, true concepts that comport with his many years of research and study in the field of human biology.”

Following the lawsuit, several members of Congress spoke out, calling for Varkey’s reinstatement.
