Finally, someone speaking common sense. Shamefully, he got fired for it.
A doctor, well-respected and long-practicing, spoke out against his hospital's support of the LGBT lifestyle from a health point of view. He gave a number of facts that show how homosexual sex lead to an increase in health risks and diseases. But instead of being listened to, he was let go.
Here, Franklin Graham stands with Dr. Church and warns against the times foretold in the Bible.
Fox reports Dr. Church sent an email to his hospital after they held a gay pride event, saying, “Behaviors common within the homosexual community are unhealthy and high risk for a host of serious medical consequences, including STDs, HIV and AIDS, anal cancer, hepatitis, parasitic intestinal infections, and psychiatric disorders. Life expectancy is significantly decreased as a result of HIV/AIDS, complications from the other health problems, and suicide.”
He likened the hospital promoting the LGBT lifestyle to them promoting smoking. But his statement of the facts have not caused him to discriminate against homosexual patients--he says his aim is to treat all with dignity and respect. However he cannot in good conscience support a lifestyle to patients that he believes to be harmful to them. Sadly, he has been fired for trying to uphold the medical truth and protect people.
