The homofascist movement has claimed another innocent victim. As Brian Camenker of MassResistance reports:
On March 30, a major Harvard-affiliated hospital in Boston, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), expelled a well-respected urologist from its medical staff because he voiced concerns about the unhealthy nature of homosexual behavior and objected to the hospital’s aggressive promotion of “gay pride” activities.
Dr. Paul Church has been a urologist on the BIDMC staff in Boston for nearly 30 years. He is a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty. He has done research on diagnosing prostate and bladder cancer, and has been a frequent volunteer for medical mission projects in Mexico and Africa. He has also spoken before educational and civic groups on the subject of high-risk sexual behaviors.
The report goes on to detail the witch hunt the hospital administration waged against Dr. Church, culminating in its dismissal of him based solely on his speech. Freedom of speech is effectively dead in America. It has been destroyed by the tyranny of political correctness in the hands of sexual degenerates and their apologists. This doctor did nothing but tell the truth. He was acting in a responsible manner, warning of the dangers of homosexual behavior, dangers that are without question, yet the strident voice of sexual deviancy shouted him down, and through its influence on the hospital administration, stripped him of his position.
Like a broken record, some of us have repeatedly warned Americans that our freedoms are in peril from the militant homosexualist movement. This is a movement based on perverse, unhealthy, immoral sexual behavior. It is being used by the Godless Left to do an end-run around our First Amendment protections. Its goal is to silence Christians and others opposed to its dark agenda of tyranny over the people of the United States.
What happened with this doctor is demonic lunacy. The people who stand on the side of homosexualism, having rejected truth, are void of reason, and instead cling to lies and delusion. They despise those of us who tell the plain, timeless truth about homosexuality and related behaviors like “transgenderism.” This is clearly seen in the hospital administration’s treatment of Dr. Church. Mr. Camenker’s report further states:
Over a decade ago, Dr. Church became concerned about the hospital’s aggressive promotion of and involvement in LGBT activities — including Boston’s annual “Gay Pride Week” – and its emphatic push for staff participation in them. He felt compelled to speak out.
Through emails to hospital officials and later posting on the hospital’s Intranet system, Dr. Church cited irrefutable medical evidence that high-risk sexual practices common to the LGBT community lead to (among other things) a higher incidence of HIV/AIDS, STD’s, hepatitis, parasitic infections, anal cancers, and psychiatric disorders.
Promoting such behavior, he said, is contrary to the higher mission of the healthcare facility to protect the public welfare and encourage healthy lifestyles. Dr. Church also reminded the administration that its staff and employees represent a diversity of moral and religious views, and many believe that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral.
The hospital did not at any time dispute the truth of his medical statements, nor did they address his other concerns.
They did not claim that Dr. Church ever discussed this with patients, or treated patients any differently if they were involved with these behaviors.
Instead Dr. Church was met with increasingly harsh efforts by the hospital administration to silence and censor him. They told him that his admonitions about homosexual behavior constituted “discrimination and harassment,” were “offensive to BIDMC staff,” and could not be tolerated.
Notice that these people did not answer Dr. Church’s irrefutable points about the dangers of homosexual behavior and the irresponsibility of the hospital’s pushing of homosexual “pride” activities. Instead, they basically stuck their fingers in their ears and shouted, “LA! LA! LA! LA! LA! LA! We can’t hear you! You’re offensive to us!” We are at a point in our nation where the major institutions have been commandeered by truth-haters. No longer will appeals to reason and right be heard. This kind of story will become ever more frequent, especially if the Supreme Court lawlessly imposes on the United States sodomy-based pairings masquerading as “marriages.” If this happens, as many of us fear it will, then we ain’t seen nothin’ yet.
As our nation continues to slide further into the dark, degenerate abyss of tyranny, those of us who know the Lord, who know the truth, must work like never before to stand strong in His Word and by His Word. We will come under increasing attacks from the God-haters among us who are animated by Satan’s desire to steal, kill and destroy all things of God, especially God’s children, those of us bought by the blood of Jesus.
I wish I could be more positive, more upbeat about our future, but I can’t. I don’t see any massive, nationwide revival or return to the Lord in our nation’s future. The children of the devil have taken over the minds and hearts of so many in the younger generations. Our public schools have become evil indoctrination centers, cranking out “good little comrades” who are taught to despise the ancient Wisdom that founded the world. No doubt, some of those good little comrades are in the administration of the Boston hospital that fired Dr. Church.
Speaking of which, Brian Camenker ends his report on Dr. Church (the whole of which I recommend that you read and share, linked here) with a suggestion that might interest you:
Dr. Church has essentially done what virtually no one in the pro-family establishment has been willing to do for at least a decade: unflinchingly tell the medical and moral truth about homosexual behavior. In our opinion, that failure is the main reason why we have lost so much ground in the courts, the public forum, and just about everywhere else.
And this is what it’s come to. The insanity of this decision by a major hospital against a respected physician is staggering. It is one thing for the education system, big business, or even government to succumb to the lunacy of “political correctness.” But when the medical profession [does] so – especially [in] such an irrational and oppressive manner – it is time for all of us to be fearful. Is this the future?
If you do nothing else, make sure that Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center hears from you – and as many others as you can get — on this. Dr. Church has put his career on the line for all of us. It’s time for us to step up for him.
Contact the president of BIDMC right now. Tell him this is an unacceptable way for a hospital to act. Dr. Church must be reinstated to his position immediately!
