We knew this would eventually happen.

Some medical facts are now considered verboten under penalty of career loss.  Dr. Paul Church was fired for telling the truth—really—medical truth.

Recently, Dr. Church was expelled from the staff of BIDMC [Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston] after he posted  medical concerns about the dangerous practices of homosexual behavior, also two Bible verses, on the hospital’s internal Internet portal.

The hospital did not dispute the truth of Dr. Church’s statements, nor claim that he ever discussed these matters with patients. But they stated that his concerns constitute “discrimination,” “harassment,” and “unprofessional conduct” and may not be discussed.

See, it wasn’t the truth of what Dr. Church posted that got him expelled, it was his beliefs about homosexuality.  This goes back years, to at least 2004, when Church responded to a BIDMC email promoting their 16th annual (meaning they’d been having these since 1993) LGBT Achievement Award ceremony.

Mind you, this was not printed up on flyers or published online, or even posted on bathroom wall or bulletin board.  Church sent an email to hospital officials and members of the Board of Trustees.

The evidence is irrefutable that behaviors common within the homosexual community are unhealthy and high risk for a host of serious medical consequences, including STD’s, 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. This alone should make it reprehensible to the medical community, who has an obligation to promote and model healthy behaviors and lifestyles.

It is all together inappropriate for BIDMC to endorse, affirm, or encourage the behaviors “celebrated” by Gay Pride Week.  Sexual orientation has absolutely no direct bearing on work qualifications, and therefore does not require endorsement in the workplace. This action again jeopardizes the credibility of BIDMC as a healthcare institution and dishonors a large proportion of its community who continue to hold to the conviction that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral.  . . .

Instead, you have allowed the homosexual activists to expand their peculiar activities on campus and promoted these perversions in an institution-wide email message.  It is time to put our mission as a healthcare institution ahead of misguided zeal for political correctness and inclusiveness.  After all, inclusiveness of the wrong values and behaviors only serves to dishonor and discredit BIDMC and the larger community it represents.

In fact, the very officials who began to spread “discrimination” threats against Church publicized his emails to create more public outcry.  In 2009, the hospital demanded that Church apologize to gay activists for sending an email to hospital officials.  It’s simply forbidden to express certain opinions.

Now, in 2015, Church has been expelled and his appeal denied.  The hospital’s board could overturn the expulsion, but does anybody really think that will happen?

And the most chilling aspect of this latest stomping on freedom of speech:

The Boston Globe, Boston Herald, and the Boston office of the Associated Press all acknowledged receiving information about the Dr. Church issue, and all have declined to write about it, despite multiple calls. Nor have any Boston TV stations picked it up.

Probably most disappointing is that Boston’s “conservative” radio talk show host, Jeff Kuhner of WRKO 680 AM, has refused to bring it up it on his show, despite numerous requests. Given the wide range of conservative topics he brings up on his show, this is very unsettling.

The national mainstream media has also stayed away from the story. Fox News, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Washington Post, USA Today and even the Blaze received material but declined to act on it.

Maybe it’s just not news anymore when people lose their careers because they think gay sex propagates sexually transmitted diseases like HIV/AIDS.  The media would rather just forget all that and portray it as just another lifestyle choice (and you’d better do that too, or else).
