Liberals object to Christians saving lives

NEW York City is the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak in the USA. When a 68-bed field hospital specifically equipped to deal with respiratory care and staffed by 60 to 70 medical professionals was erected within the wide open spaces of Central Park, it should have been good news.

Not so for progressives, who quickly jumped in to criticise and complain. Many are deeply upset that this hospital has been erected by Samaritan’s Purse, the evangelical Christian humanitarian organisation run by its president Franklin Graham. 

‘People are dying from the coronavirus, hospitals are out of beds, and the medical staff are overwhelmed,’ Graham said in a statement last Sunday. ‘We are deploying our emergency field hospital to New York to help carry this burden. This is what Samaritan’s Purse does – we respond in the middle of crises to help people in Jesus’s Name. Please pray for our teams and for everyone around the world affected by the virus.’

Samaritan’s Purse works in more than 100 countries and is equipped to set up ad hoc facilities rapidly when and where they’re needed. Last month it airlifted a 68-bed hospital unit to Cremona, in the Lombardy region of Northern Italy, in response to the horrifying flood of coronavirus patients there. The Italians did not complain.

Liberal New Yorkers, however, have.

New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, a homosexual, said: ‘Franklin Graham has a long history of spewing anti-LGBTQ hate speech and I find it extremely troubling that he and his organisation are involved in our relief efforts in any way. I will be monitoring this situation closely.’
