Boston Doctor Fired For Telling Truth About Homosexuality

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.

fired_2The 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!

    There can hardly be any greater selfishness than when one silences valid warnings, and keeps them from those who most need to hear them, simply because one doesn’t personally like the truth they represent.

    There is NO possible valid justification for the action described in the article.

    Truth is hate speech to those who embrace a lie.

    Ray’s Facebook comment illustrates the lunacy, irrationality, and deception of the mindset that runs BIDMC and much of the medical professions today. Here they are, firing a well-respected doctor because he voiced genuine concerns — based on factual evidence — about the PC Gay Agenda. And Ray spouts off, “… okay, then, we should just kill all the gays and be done with it, right?”

    This is what passes for rationality when the inmates are running the asylum. As amazed as I am that our society has come to this point, I am even more amazed that so many Christians think the best thing to do is to remain silent. But what that amounts to, brothers and sisters, is tacit approval. Speak up or give up!

      It’s amazing the rhetorical lengths to which these people will go in order to “rationalize” homosexual behavior.

      • DCM7 says:

        If this were a site with more comment traffic and less moderation (like some I’ve seen), I’d be interested to see how people attempted to justify something like the firing of Dr. Church — or the extent to which they would just stay away because they couldn’t say anything.

        • WXRGina says:

          DCM, over at BarbWire, where there are more commenters, this column has not yet seen a defender of the hospital, and BarbWire attracts some of the most rabid pro-homosexualist commenters. So far, they’re not touching this.

          • franklinb23 says:

            I don’t have a problem with citing facts, but you have to at least attempt to provide a full context and avoid leading others to faulty conclusions.

            One can be a homosexual and have no STDs, depending on how one lives. If one is monogamous (or celibate), the risk is very low. If one has multiple partners, the risk increases. Note that lesbians have a far lower HIV rate than the population of Catholic priests.

            Is there a problem with promiscuity amongst gay men? Yup.
            Why not address that, though? That’s an uncomfortable fact that few will deny.

            Adopting heterosexual behavior is no guarantee of anything if one is going to behave similarly, I’m sure you’ll agree. The rate of HPV in heterosexual women is high, and that can cause cervical cancer.

            In terms of abortion and the abandonment of one’s biological offspring, that’s also predominantly the domain of heterosexuals. (Gay women aren’t generally having abortions, obviously.)

            • WXRGina says:

              The only “faulty conclusion” in this deal is to imagine that homosexual behavior is in any way, shape or form something in which ANYONE should engage.

            • Bob Ellis says:

              No, adopting heterosexual behavior is no guarantee that STDs and other ailments that plague the homosexual community in startlingly greater numbers will diminish with the adoption.

              However, as with most things, the proof is in the pudding. The simple fact is that despite the heterosexual community making up more than 97% of the human population, 97% of STDs and other ailments (such as AIDS, for example) do not come from the heterosexual community. Even 50% of the cases don’t come from the heterosexual community; over 70% of these cases come from the less-than-3%-homosexual community.

              Are there exceptions to behavior patterns on both sides. Of course. But the stark contrast in these facts indicates a deep-rooted and fundamental problem common to homosexual behavior. Some might characterize it as a foundational unwillingness to control one’s self. Some might characterize it as a foundational moral failure–a willingness to cross a key moral behavior boundary such as homosexuality promotes an ongoing willingness to violate other moral boundaries such as promiscuity, sexual responsibility, etc. As I found during a period some 25 years ago when I was angry at God, when it comes to sin, the axiom “In for a penny, in for a pound” is the order of the day. You start crossing certain boundaries, and it isn’t long before you’re crossing a lot more than you ever thought you would. As the saying in Christian circles goes: “Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer than you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay.” I found out the hard way that every part of that is true, in spades.

              Finally, homosexual women can’t produce children to abort or abandon–not if they’re behaving in the manner in which the Left tells us they are biologically destined to behave, and are unable to change. So your statement about this is irrelevant to the subject at hand.

                “One can be a homosexual and have no STDs, depending on how one lives. If one is monogamous (or celibate), the risk is very low. If one has multiple partners, the risk increases.”
                The missing piece in this statement, as in any such statement, is that there is a direct cause-and-effect relationship between same-sex attraction and “how one lives.” No, not every fits exactly the same profile, but the tendencies in certain directions are clearly recognizable.

                “Is there a problem with promiscuity amongst gay men? Yup.
                Why not address that, though?”
                Given the direct tendency for same-sex attractions to lead to promiscuity, it’s just never going to work to try to address the promiscuity without addressing the attractions themselves. And even if promiscuity can be reduced, the basic problems with same-sex attraction remain: that it is contrary to the design for sexuality, and that it is not something anyone has without something seriously having gone wrong — something that could and should be addressed.

              • franklinb23 says:

                DCM writes: “No, not everyone fits exactly the same profile, but the tendencies in certain directions are clearly recognizable.”

                What do you make of the fact that black men make up a disproportionate percentage of the prison population? It’s a fact, but what conclusions should be drawn from it?

                Is it the culture? Something intrinsic to their race? Is it specific to this country?

                I’m just saying that correlation is not necessarily causation.

              • DCM7 says:

                “I’m just saying that correlation is not necessarily causation.”
                And correlation is not necessarily *not* causation.

                Does something in someone’s race (a meaningless, superficial quality) inherently lead to them being criminal? Of course not.

                But does something in an abnormal sexual attraction inherently lead to certain sexual behavior? That shouldn’t sound like much of a stretch at all. And there’s certainly enough evidence of it being the case to satisfy any honest inquirer.

                PS: You are certainly smart enough to know better than to try the tired, old trick of likening homosexuality to race. We have long since easily recognized that for the utter fallacy it is.

          • DCM7 says:

            That doesn’t surprise me. I’ve frequently made postings in other places that explain certain things, in very basic and hard-to-deny terms, and there’s usually no reply, or only irrelevant and evasive ones.
            And then, after ignoring arguments like these that they cannot answer, people will go on posting how there supposedly *are* no such arguments.

    • Thisoldspouse says:

      Yeah, “if you offer to help me, you hate me and want me dead.”

      The “logic” is mind numbing.

    Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is only looking to pad their own pockets with more sick people.
