LGBTQQIP2SAA activists as well as some progressive journalists have attacked some of the Charities setting up outlets and bringing medical professionals and supplies to New York City because they are Christian organisations.
Samaritan’s Purse set up a 68-bed field hospital in Central Park with 60 to 70 medical staff to treat patients sick with coronavirus and ease the burden on local hospitals but NBC news ran the headline “Group behind Central Park’s COVID-19 field hospital run by antigay evangelist.”
The major mainstream media outlet highlighted the fact the organisation has made a “request for ‘Christian’ volunteers” and claimed this has caused “raised eyebrows”.
Now This News, tweeted out a photo of volunteers setting up a huge tent with the caption:
“The makeshift hospital in Central Park is being built and run by Samaritan’s Purse, the relief organisation run by the notoriously anti-LGBTQ+ minister Franklin Graham.”
In a statement Graham said:
“Samaritan’s Purse treats everyone we help the same. We do not make distinctions about an individual’s religion, race, sexual orientation, or economic status.”
New York state Senator Brad Hoylman, who is himself gay, told NBC news that it is “a shame that the federal government has left us in the position of having to accept charity from such bigots.”
