Dear Editors of the Medical Post and its publisher, Rogers Digital Media:
I am deeply disappointed at the racism embedded within “Physicians Famous for their Religious Leanings,” the article published in the April 7, 2015 edition of the Medical Post.
The article discusses the professional work of specific physicians in the context of their faith. The article recognizes Pope John XXI who was a practicing physician and teacher. Dr. Schwitzer was an author of a biography on Sebastian Bach and a Nobel Peace Prize winner in 1952. Dr. Damadian was credited with contributions that led to the invention of the MRI.
The article also recognizes Ayman Al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda leader and an architect of the 9/11 attacks, as a Muslim physician noted for his faith…
She says the article is ‘racist.’ Wow, what a surprise. We could add a few more religious Muslim doctors, like the twit in Australia who just joined Islamic State.
