Mark Craddock, a doctor in Sydney Australia has been “found guilty of unsatisfactory processional conduct” and reprimanded after prescribing a “chemical castration” treatment to a gay teen in order to “cure”
Both men were at the time members of the Exclusive Brethren, a conservative Christian group whose members shun television, radio, and the Internet and do not vote.
In a letter of complaint to the commission, the patient wrote that he came out as gay at the age of 18 and was informed by a church leader, “There’s medication you can go on for these things.”
The patient then consulted Craddock.
The commission argued that during the consultation the doctor did not provide appropriate medical management of the patient’s needs by failing to physically examine him or take a medical history.
He also failed to refer him to a counsellor or psychologist.
Craddock instead prescribed cyprostat, a drug used to treat prostate cancer and manage sexual deviation by reducing testosterone, in circumstances which were not clinically indicated, the commission alleged.
According to a Back2Stonewall.com source Craddock’s medical license wasn’t revoked because he’s a radiologists and Australia has been suffering from a huge shortage of them for several years now.
This is EXACTLY why we all have to keep a very keen eye on religious fundamentalists not only here but worldwide, worldwide. What they really want is to destroy and eliminate us. All in the name of “God”.
