Christian Nutter Watch: Dr Hans-Christian Raabe

"I have been discriminated against because of my opinions and beliefs which are in keeping with the teaching of the major Churches. This sets a dangerous precedent: Are we saying that being a Christian is now a bar to public office?’
"My appointment has been revoked based on the wrong perception that I could potentially discriminate against gay people – something I have never done; neither in my private nor professional life. Even the Home Office has not questioned my knowledge and expertise in matters relating to substance misuse and drug policy.

Dr Hans-Christian Raabe, The Daily Mail.

"A Christian GP claimed last night that he had been ‘sacrificed on the altar of political correctness’ after being sacked as a government drugs adviser."
A familiar Daily Mail trope...
Dr Hans-Christian Raabe was appointed to the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs in January.
He has stood in the European elections as a Christian Party candidate, and takes a "Just say no" line on drugs.
He was quoted in The Observer as saying; "While the majority of homosexuals are not involved in paedophilia, it is of grave concern that there is a disproportionately greater number of homosexuals among paedophiles and an overlap between the gay movement and the movement to make paedophilia acceptable."
Home Office officials said he failed to disclose being co-author of a study suggesting a link between homosexuality and paedophilia.
From The Daily Telegraph; "It is understood that during the interview process he was expressly asked if he had anything about his professional or personal history that might cause embarrassment to the government or the advisory panel."
Oops!
