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.
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.

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.
