(Christianity Today) After he expressed negative views about homosexuality, Dr. Paul Church said he was stunned when he suddenly received a notice from management last March relieving him of his job at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) in Boston, which is a Harvard-affiliated hospital.
Church, who is an urologist, said he was informed by hospital management that his views about homosexuality bordered on "discrimination," "harassment," and "unprofessional conduct," and that the Bible verses he used to define homosexuality were similarly "offensive," Charisma News reported.
Richard Mast, a Liberty Counsel attorney representing Church, said his client has the right to voice out his thoughts because of religious freedom.

"Dr. Church was censured and subjected to disciplinary action for stating an objection on medical and religious grounds to the promotion of homosexuality," he said.
