Professor Fired; Professional Opinion didn’t Line up with UNIBAM’s Agenda

vlcsnap-2014-05-19-20h32m35s35Jamaican Professor Brendan Bain has been fired from his job as the head of the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training (CHART) Initiative.

UNIBAM and 32 other homosexual advocacy groups demanded Bain’s termination from that post because of his expert testimony in the Caleb Orozco vs Government of Belize case over Section 53 of Belize’s criminal code.

vlcsnap-2014-05-19-20h32m25s189It appears that for the University of the West Indies, Bain’s qualifications, work,  and reputation as a pioneer in clinical infectious disease practice in the Caribbean and a leading medical authority on the HIV epidemic in the region, count for nothing when weighed against his professional assertion on the health dangers for men who have sex with men and his professional explanation that changing sodomy laws in other countries have not lessened those dangers or HIV statistics for MSMs.

The homosexual advocacy groups became irate at Bain’s testimony in the Orozco case and have once again been successful in removing another person from a key position.

That removal was not even because of Bain’s personal opinion on the matter, but his professional opinion, which, unfortunately for Bain, did not line up with the homosexual agenda.

In his testimony in the Orozco case, Bain had addressed consequences of homosexual behaviour not only to the individual practising such a lifestyle, but to the society in which they live.

In a statement from the University of the West Indies, it said while the University recognises the right of Bain to provide expert testimony in the manner he did, it has become increasingly evident that Bain has lost the confidence and support of a significant sector of the community which the CHART programme is expected to reach.

Bain has been the director of CHART since its inception and after his retirement from UWI in 2013, he was given a two-year post-retirement contract to continue in his role as director.  He was honored twice by the Jamaican National Aids Committee.
