Bill de Blasio to 'Monitor' Samaritan's Purse Coronavirus - Emergency Hospital for 'Discrimination'

Posted: Apr 2nd, 2020 - 4:26 pm

Over the weekend, the global evangelical Christian charity Samaritan's Purse set up an emergency field hospital in New York City's historic Central Park to help the Big Apple handle the coronavirus crisis. Mayor Bill de Blasio has thanked the organization ... by promising to monitor it to make sure there's no "discrimination."

Hizzoner told the New York Post that he found it "very troubling" when he heard that Samaritan's Purse would open a pop-up hospital in the park to help during the coronavirus crisis. de Blasio views the charity with suspicion because its president and CEO, Franklin Graham, has championed the Bible's stance on sexuality.

"I said immediately to my team that we had to find out exactly what was happening," de Blasio told the Post. It seems he was concerned that Samaritan's Purse would "discriminate" against those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT). "Was there going to be an approach that was truly consistent with the values and the laws in New York City, that everyone would be served and served equally?"

de Blasio wouldn't dream of announcing he would "monitor" a pro-LGBT charity that stepped in to help with the coronavirus outbreak to make sure it didn't discriminate against conservatives. Yet he claims to find it "very troubling" that a conservative Christian group would offer crucial health care in the midst of a crisis — just because it's Christian.
