The Darker, Dangerous Side of American Homosexuality

by Michael Avramovich

Paul Church, M.D., is a veteran urologist who has been on the staff of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (“BIDMC”) in Boston for nearly 30 years. BIDMC, which is also a Harvard Medical School teaching hospital, has been ranked for many years as a “Best Hospital” by U.S. News & World Report, and is described as “one of the nation’s preeminent academic medical centers, committed to providing excellence in clinical care, teaching, research and community outreach.” Dr. Church, as a member of the Harvard Medical School faculty, has conducted extensive research on prostate and bladder cancer. He has also offered his medical training and skills to the poor on numerous occasions during volunteer mission trips to Mexico and Africa. However, Dr. Church has now been terminated from BIDMC. What was his crime? According to BIDMC, he violated “established standards of professional conduct” by using BIDMC’s information system “to communicate . . . unsolicited views about homosexuality that were offensive to BIDMC staff.” As a result, BIDMC President and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Kevin Tabb wrote the following to Dr. Church in late March, “The [Medical Executive Committee] has recommended imposition of disciplinary action, in the form of revocation of your appointment to the Medical Staff.”

Dr. Church’s “crimes” began eleven years ago. After receiving an announcement involving BIDMC’s support for an LGBTQ+?-related event, he responded with the following:

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.

Emphasis added. In April 2012, Dr. Church requested that BIDMC’s communications department not send him any further notices regarding LGBTQ+? activities. However, his request was ignored. Thereafter, Dr. Church continued to receive an ever-increasing number of emails and notices affirmative of the LGBTQ+? lifestyle. In response to one such email, the pesky Dr. Church wrote the following:
Celebrating sexual perversions is highly inappropriate, especially in the context of a medical center that should be aware of the negative health consequences of high risk behaviors. It also ignores and dishonors the religious convictions and moral objections that many members of the hospital community share who are opposed to these behaviors.

It is foreseeable that, in addition to Dr. Church and a few other devout Christian believers, there could also be an Orthodox Jew or two who serve as physicians or other medical staff at Beth Israel DMC who might object to homosexual behaviors.
