Why do doctors support unhealthy lifestyles? The surgeon that stood up to the profession

Dr. Paul Church was a practicing urologist for more than 35 years; he was also involved with clinical research and teaching as an Assistant Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School. He was fired from his job, his career was destroyed, his life was upended, and his medical license was nearly revoked when he merely advocated for healthy choices, and criticized hospital superiors for promoting unhealthy behaviors.

Listen
This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

Dr. Church challenged the administration of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to be more truthful and honest about the negative health consequences inherent with high risk and unhealthy LGBTQIA+ sexual behaviors and to be more respectful of the diversity of religious and moral views regarding sodomy. He was met with increasing efforts to silence his concerns. Despite an outpouring of public support and legal representation from Liberty Counsel, he was expelled from the medical staff in December 2015. Two other hospitals where Dr. Church held appointments for years followed suit and expelled him as well. A fourth hospital revoked their offer to join the medical staff, fearing repercussions from the LGBT community.


Dr. Church is a member of the Christian Medical and Dental Association and medical volunteer or leader of eleven short-term medical mission projects in Mexico and Africa. He has two married daughters and six grandchildren. He was honored with a Citizenship Award by MFI in 2015 and a similar award from the Catholic Medical Association in 2016. He retired from clinical practice November 1, 2017.

Schools are Teaching Your Children This, but They Don't Want You to Know... Sex-ed and More

Listen

Currently, Mrs. Ruse serves as Family Research Council’s Senior Fellow for Legal Studies. She is also Legal Supervisor for Ave Maria School of Law/Culture of Life Foundation Washington Externship Program, and she is a Certified Dyslexia Therapist.

Mrs. Ruse previously served the United States' House of Representatives as Chief Counsel of the Constitution Subcommittee, and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops as pro-life spokesman. Prior to her policy and advocacy work, Mrs. Ruse practiced law in Washington D.C. She has testified as an expert in congressional hearings in both the House and the Senate, and she has filed "Friend of the Court" briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court.


Mrs. Ruse received her law degree from Georgetown University and her doctorate in Humane Letters from Franciscan University. She holds multiple professional certifications in the field of Academic Language/Dyslexia Therapy.

Mrs. Ruse and her husband Austin received the John Paul II Award for Advancing the Culture of Life and the Defender of Life Award from Students for Life of America. They are the proud parents of two wonderful daughters.

ACTION ITEMS

  • Be very present to your children: As parents, we must be the primary educators of our children in all things, and especially in matters of sexuality. It is from parents and churches that children will hear the good news about God’s design for human sexuality.
  • Teach your children: Sex is for intimate unity within marriage and this union creates children. Marriage is for the protection and benefit of children. Children will understand the true meaning and purpose of sex within marriage, and that marriage is for the protection and benefit of children. Parents must confidently and consistently share these important messages with their children, because their children are not likely to hear them in our culture or in our public schools.
  • You must interfere: Immoral sex ed works best when parents don’t interfere. You must interfere.
  • Help your child organize a club: Choose a focus that will have a positive impact on the school, like a Bible Study club, a Pure Fashion club, a Biology Club, or a Christian Athletes club.
  • Invite a group to review sex ed materials: Invited trusted parents to review your school’s sex ed lessons. Read the actual lessons, watch the videos, and visit the recommended web sites. Do not rely on the summaries provided by the school and do not settle for being handed a packet of home resources to “reinforce” the lesson. Demand to see the actual lessons your children will see.

    Parents may opt their children out of this material whenever and wherever it may crop up—in lessons, school events, assemblies, classes, or any activities that violate their families’ beliefs.

  • Every school year, file the “Universal Model Opt-Out letter” (template provided by Family Research Council): downloads.frc.org/EF/EF19J21.pdf

"I am going to be a boy, it will keep me safe"

Dr. Erin Brewer developed a trans identity after being molested in first grade. She did everything she could to be a boy. In her mind, she *was* a boy. But instead of enabling this delusion, Erin's mother eventually sent her to a therapist, and she received proper care to manage her gender confused feelings. She eventually accepted her gender, but continued running away from God.

She became a star on the most popular pornography site in the world, making the top 20 most popular amateur performers, with over 10.8 million views and more than 400 videos. She was saved from pornography when she accepted Jesus as her Savior. She deleted all of her videos and is now speaking out about the dangers of gender ideology and porn. She openly shares her deeply personal story to help others understand the damage that is being done to our children by the transgender movement. Erin earned her bachelors degree from Hampshire College, and her Doctorate in Instructional Technology and Learning Science from Utah State University.
