I’ve often made the point that the homosexual agenda represents the biggest threat to religious liberty in our nation’s history. This is for the simple reason that every advance of the homosexual agenda comes at the expense of religious liberty. As the gay agenda advances, religious liberty is forced into retreat.
As much as we’d like to pretend things are different, it is a zero-sum game. Every time homosexuality wins, religious liberty loses. We as a nation must choose between homosexuality and Christianity because we cannot have both.
More proof comes from the sobering case of Dr. Paul Church, a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty who, according to Brian Camenker of MassResistance, has been fired for telling the truth about homosexuality.
Dr. Church’s medical credentials are impeccable. He has been a urologist on the staff of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) for 30 years, and has done research into diagnosing prostate and bladder cancer.
What did Dr. Church do to get himself fired from BIDMC despite such a stellar career? He told the well-documented truth about the health risks of homosexual behavior. So for doing his job as a public health professional, he now finds himself out on the street.
Dr. Church, alarmed at BIDMC’s mindless crusade to normalize homosexual behavior, began posting medical information about the health consequences of homosexuality on the hospital’s internal internet communications portal where his colleagues could read it.
He quite correctly pointed out that homosexual conduct leads to a higher incidence of HIV/AIDS, STD’s, hepatitis, parasitic infections, anal cancers, and psychiatric disorders.
The hospital has never contested the accuracy of any of Dr. Church’s statements about the dangers of homosexuality, and he’s never been “accused” of sharing this information with actual patients.
But for doing nothing more than communicating medical truth, Dr. Church was formally accused of “discrimination,” “harassment,” and “unprofessional conduct.” Furthermore, posting Bible verses on the topic were labeled “offensive” and discriminatory, and were added to his catalogue of crimes against Big Gay.
It’s worth noting that Dr. Church asked to have his name removed from the internal email list used by the hospital to send out its pro-sodomy material because he found it offensive. But his request was, as you might expect, ignored. While offending touchy homosexual activists is now a career ending crime, offending the sensibilities of Christians is something that can be done with absolute impunity.
As Brian Camenker writes,
A frightening thing is happening in America’s medical community. Public health is under assault by the pro-homosexual movement. In a manner that can almost be considered demonic, medical truth that could affect millions of people is being censored by “educated” doctors obsessed with the lies of political correctness. It brings to mind the mentality of medical people who continue to defend Planned Parenthood after the unspeakable horrors that have been revealed. As always, along with this mindset goes a near-pathological hatred of Judeo-Christian religious belief.
Dr. Church has one last card to play, as his expulsion must be approved by the hospital’s Board of Directors. Dr. Church has indicated he will seek a review of the hearing panel’s actions, so the final chapter in this sorry saga has yet to be written.
But the low-information media, again as you might expect, has pretended this story doesn’t even exist. The Boston area media has done nothing with the story, and while the story has received coverage in places like Hong Kong and the U.K., Fox News, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post have ignored the story despite having been given information about it.
If the Gay Gestapo can put a man of Dr. Church’s caliber and expertise out on the street, no one in the medical profession is safe, and the few medical professionals who are willing to speak the truth will be put on notice that such temerity could put their entire careers in jeopardy.
As Martin Luther King, Jr. observed, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Injustice is being done in Boston to Dr. Paul Church, which means injustice is being done to us all.
