Hospital appeal panel pronounces Dr. Church “guilty.” Expelled from major Boston hospital for telling the truth about LGBT behavior

Sep 13, 2015 by

From MassResistance: A special appeal panel at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in Boston has upheld the hospital administration’s earlier claim that a physician’s statements to colleagues and staff about the dangers of homosexuality constitute “discrimination,” “harassment,” and “unprofessional conduct,” and that Bible verses regarding homosexuality are similarly “offensive” and discriminatory. Dr. Paul Church has been a urologist on the BIDMC staff for nearly 30 years and is a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty. He has done research on diagnosing prostate and bladder cancer. He has also spoken on the subject of high-risk sexual behaviors. In recent years he voiced concerns to colleagues about the hospital’s aggressive promotion of LGBT events and activities. That angered the hospital administration. Recently, Dr. Church was expelled from the staff of BIDMCafter he posted  medical concerns about the dangerous practices of homosexual behavior, also two Bible verses, on the hospital’s...

Carswell slams Farage over ‘plain wrong’ election attack on foreign HIV patients

Jun 1, 2015 by

by Tom McTague, Mailonline: Ukip MP Douglas Carswell reignited his feud with Nigel Farage this morning after publicly slamming his election attacks on foreign HIV sufferers receiving treatment on the NHS. Mr Carswell, who is Ukip’s only representative in the Commons, said the remarks were ‘mean-spirited’ and ‘wrong’. […]  During the TV election debates Mr Farage said it was wrong that people ‘can come to Britain from anywhere in the world and get diagnosed with HIV and get retroviral drugs that cost up to £25,000 per year per patient’. He said that Britain needs to ensure that the NHS is for ‘British people and families who in many cases have paid into this system for decades’. But Mr Carswell – whose father was the scientist who diagnosed the first cases of HIV – warned Ukip needed to ‘always remember’ that there was ‘something fundamentally generous’ about Britain. He said:...

US Exporting Sexual Anarchy

May 25, 2015 by

By Dr Kay Baily, Jamaica Gleaner: Barely 12 weeks after his appointment as United States special envoy for human rights of LGBT persons, Randy Berry is currently paying a visit to Jamaica. The timing of his visit and the priority of Jamaica in the list of planned stops are not insignificant. In appointing him to this unique post, the secretary of state, John Kerry, emphasised that Mr Berry’s mandate was at the “heart of American foreign policy” as an “advocate for the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people overseas” and for “overturning laws that criminalise consensual sex acts”. No one can deny that all the genuine fundamental rights of LGBT persons are already guaranteed and enforceable under Jamaican law. The priority of special LGBT ‘rights’ is clearly evidenced by the fact that the current administration has not seen it fit to appoint a similar ambassador in any...

American College of Physicians endorses gay ‘marriage,’ opposes reparative therapy

May 15, 2015 by

By Lisa Bourne, LifeSite: The nation’s largest association for internal medicine doctors this week officially endorsed homosexual “marriage” and blamed marriage protection laws for damaging the physical and mental health of people who identify as LGBT. The American College of Physicians (ACP) also officially opposed reparative therapy for individuals suffering from unwanted same-sex tendencies, and called for all-inclusive “transgender healthcare services” in its policy paper published May 12 in the Annals of Internal Medicine. “It’s based upon our longstanding policy in regard to eliminating healthcare disparities,” said Dr. Wayne Riley, president of the ACP and a clinical professor of medicine at Nashville’s Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. The policy paper, titled, “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health Disparities: Executive Summary of a Policy Position Paper From the American College of Physicians,” places the blame for the increased rates of anxiety, suicide, and substance or alcohol abuse that are common...

Animus Towards Gay Sex Means Love for Homosexuals

Apr 15, 2015 by

By John-Henry Westen, Crisis Magazine: In February, the journal Social Currents published a survey that purports to show the motivations that drive the overwhelming majority of those opposed to same-sex “marriage.” According to the research, “Nearly all respondents (90 percent) who strongly oppose same-sex marriage also believe that ‘sexual relations between two adults of the same sex’ is ‘always wrong.’” On the other side they found that “approximately five-sixths (83 percent) of responses who support same-sex marriage view same-sex relations as ‘not wrong at all.’” Given that opposition to same-sex “marriage” has always held that gay sex is wrong, one might think those interested in maintaining traditional marriage would have provided the rational for the perspective—including, but not limited to, HIV/AIDS—by making it a focus of pulpit, cultural, and public policy discussions. However, the vast majority of America’s conservative and even religious leaders have chosen to ignore or remain silent about the...

Nigel Farage: Not un-Christian to stop treatment of foreign-born HIV patients

Apr 6, 2015 by

By Patrick Sawer, Telegraph: Nigel Farage has said his comments about ‘HIV tourists’ are perfectly compatible with a religious outlook, claiming that it is “a sensible Christian thing to look after your family and your own community first”. The UKIP leader spoke out on the topic of Christianity over the Easter weekend, after his criticism of foreign-born HIV patients receiving treatment under the NHS during the party leaders’ election debate was condemned as intolerant, xenophobic and lacking in basic human charity. Mr Farage had claimed that 60 per of the 7,000 HIV annual diagnoses in the UK involved “health tourists” who travel to Britain to receive retroviral drug treatment at a cost up to £25,000-per-year. His comments provoked widespread criticism, with Leanne Wood, the Plaid Cymru leader, accusing him of “dangerous scaremongering”. She was applauded by the studio audience after telling him during last Thursday’s party leaders’ debate: “You...
