The founder of Liberty Counsel argues that the fate of a Boston physician is a clear indication of the result that homosexual activists desire for all of America.
Dr. Paul Church, a renowned physician, worked at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. When the hospital issued an email supporting homosexual "pride" week and encouraging staff to participate in the annual parade, he responded with a memo outlining the dangers of the homosexual lifestyle. He was subsequently fired, a decision that was upheld on appeal. (See earlier story)
Liberty Counsel founder Mat Staver tells OneNewsNow that Church was suspended despite following procedure in his appeals to the hospital's board of directors.
"And now he has lost his medical credentials at that particular medical facility. Why? Because he chooses to have the best interests of his patients and the others in the Center as his first priority, as a doctor should," Staver offers. "And he will not promote an immoral lifestyle that is clearly harmful to both physical and mental health."
Staver contends the hospital's response to Church's truthfulness – i.e., firing him – conveniently fits with the homosexual agenda: either support the lifestyle, or be silent about it.
"If a medical scientist cannot raise research that the federal government's Centers for Disease Control clearly shows homosexual conduct as harmful, then that means that your health, my health, medical science – all of that is being called into question simply because of a political agenda," the attorney concludes.
Church is now considering his options.
