Doctor fired for comments he made online

CFD Investigating Firefighter After Anti-Gay FB Comments
As mentioned in the ABC affiliate video above, anti-gay comments continue to cause controversy on the internet and beyond.

In a similar scenario across the globe, Israeli doctor Sudi Namir quickly learned that what happens on an internet forum, doesn't stay on the internet forum. Namir's comments were made in regards to a discussion amongst professionals, surrounding the issue of same-sex parenting and surrogacy.



Namir attempted to explain himself to Israeli news station, Arutz Sheva: "someone on the forum had asked why the state of Israel was making huge efforts to save babies born by surrogate mothers in Nepal for Israeli homosexuals, after the earthquake there, when these babies are 'aburden on the public because most of these couples break up after some time.'"

After forum members from both sides expressed their views, Namir chimed in saying that he felt "sorry and pray for all those who are sick in their bodies and minds."

His stance quickly escalated to take on a extreme tone. "A pervert is a pervert is a pervert, you can call him whatever you want, he's a pervert...All the abominations of yesterday have become today's norm."

Little did Namir know, there were several doctors in the forum who were in same-sex relationships themselves. After this realization, Namir says he apologized to the forum for his tone, but would not apologize for the view itself. It was later reported that The Israel Medical Association had fired Numir for his actions.

In his interview with Arutz Sheva, Namir seems to blame the United States for what he calls is an "abomination."



So we want to know, do you think the Israel Medical Association was correct in firing Sudi Namir?

Shlissel was released from jail three weeks ago after having served his sentence for the attack a decade ago when three marchers were wounded, a police spokesman said.
