The public will soon be asked to help draw attention to the case of a Massachusetts doctor who was fired for telling the truth about the homosexual lifestyle.

gender confusionBeth Israel Deaconess hospital in Boston circulated emails among staff asking that they celebrate the pro-homosexual lifestyle and participate in Boston's homosexual pride parade. In response, Dr. Paul Church wrote emails to responsible staff explaining the dangers of the lifestyle and even quoted scripture. He was fired, and two appeals resulted in a recommendation to the hospital board to uphold the termination.

Sean Ryan of MassResistance tells OneNewsNow that Church, represented by Liberty Counsel, is taking the case to the board.

"He has to demonstrate that they 'acted arbitrarily or capriciously or with prejudice' against him or that the evidence they provided doesn't fit the charge, so to speak," Ryan explains. "And he's building a very strong case on his defense along with the Liberty Counsel."

The convincing factor, though, might come from the general public, says Ryan.

"I think [the hospital board] can be very much swayed with enough public outcry," he continues. "We are going to work on informing more and more people about what the real issue is behind the Dr. Church case. At the moment right now, we've got a number of plans."

Those plans will be announced soon and the public called to take action to help preserve Dr. Church's position at the hospital.
