Adventist Pastor, Dr. Eric Walsh, Lost Job Offer Because He Preaches The Bible

eric-walshMy Fellow Israelites:

Recently, I brought to your attention the case of Dr. Walsh, a Seventh-day Adventist Pastor/ Physician, who is the current Public Health Director for the City of Pasadena, CA.  It is with sadness that I share the news that Dr. Walsh’s job offer letter was rescinded by his future employers simply on the grounds of his Theology!

Dr. Walsh is a Black Scientist & Theologian, and the location where he has been recently offered a job has the Whitest population in that State — North Georgia.  According to the news release: “The North Georgia Health District covers Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield counties.” —

All these Northern GA Counties have white populations ranging from 62.2% to 96.1%, and this demographic chose to hire a black man as their region’s Public Health Director, showing that his race was not a factor!  But prejudice and discrimination of a baser sort is now standing in his way—His religious convictions against the homosexual, same-sex marriage agenda!  They have stalked him from Pasadena CA to Atlanta GA, and he is being hounded and treated like a pedophile for his beliefs! And there are many people and movements who are rejoicing at this!  Let’s pray for the pastor, and strengthen our resolves, because it is coming to a home and a church near you, your home or mine could very easily be the next target very soon!

I did a search on the demographics of Northern GA Counties where Dr. Walsh would have served: Cherokee, Fannin, Gilmer, Murray, Pickens and Whitfield counties.  My aim was to see if his race had anything to do with their decision, and then even more to see if the demographic he would have been serving had any bearing on the decision made to rescind his job offer letter.  Here is what the public records show:

County Population in 2012 % Whites
White Non-Hispanic Alone
Cherokee 221,315 81.30% 0
Fannin 23,492 96.10% 0
Gilmer 28,190 88.60% 0
Murray  39,392 85.00% 0
Pickens 29,268 94.50% 0
Whitfield 103,359 62.20% 0
Total 405,624 *84.62% 0

* This percentage is a weighted average of all six counties.

How stunning to learn that the community he would have served has an average White, non-Hispanic population of 85%, with a LGBTQ population of 0%.  This record is very telling that his race had nothing to do with the decision, because he had to have personally sat through the interview, and upon assessing all competing candidates, for this top-notch job among an employee body of 6,000, is a testimony in itself to his impeccable qualifications for the job!  Observe that there are no citizens from the LGBTQ community in the area of his service.

This is reverse discrimination, now we are seeing false employment restrictions set in place, to bully Christians from expressing their convictions.  At last check, no one from the LGBT community is being oppressed or denied employment for their orientation, but the same cannot be said for the many cases we see afloat, attacking Christians from their equal right to free speech!

“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” Isa. 54: 17

It is my hope and prayer that the truth of this evil be revealed and exposed for the thinking public to realize that this fine doctor is being marginalized and denied access to employment because of his religious convictions, in an era of “equal opportunity employment!”  Let’s not hold grudges, but learn our lesson, and learn it well, that this is only the tip of a larger iceberg. One which will restrict our buying and selling privileges on pain of death (Rev. 13: 15), except we agree to “worship” in conformance with the mark (image) of the beast system.

Shalom in Messiah,

  1. Homosexuality is a birth defect. Those so inflicted have no choice. There’s no cure. I was happier about their existence when they were still in the closet and didn’t have parades every year. The only defective people that I know of who celebrate their defect. I wouldn’t advertise any of what I’ve written if I were in a job interview or doing that job if hired. My own personal life would have been frowned on by at least one of the people who signed my paychek during my working years. You really need to be careful about being conspicuously vocal with controversial topics. Not doing so can apparently cost you a lot of money.


    1. Thanks much brother Jimmy, for your advice. The cause for which I write is simply to promote truth, count the cost what it may. God’s servants are not politicians seeking approval ratings and securing their paychecks at the expense of seeking to save the lost. I know there are individuals who do not believe in freedom of speech and freedom of thought, and as such will seek to economically punish those who share a different worldview, but God feeds the homosexuals and the non-homosexuals, and he will care for all His children.


  2. Brother Jimmy, I do not know if you understand the full ramifications of your ideas. While I grant you the aspect that “some” men and women are born or develop low hormonal balances, which may give rise to certain pre-dispositions. the FACT remains that God created them for His kingdom. God does not create something to destroy, His word is ever living and guides us to ETERNAL LIFE, which I am sure you would want , yes?.

    When we know what God’s word says such as —

    “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, 20 idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, 21 envy,1 drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” (Galatians 5:19-21)


    “If a man practices homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman, both men have committed a detestable act. They must both be put to death, for they are guilty of a capital offense.” (Lev.20:13)

    Of course Lev.20:13 is not practiced today by civil governments but God’s way does not change (Mal. 3:6) and the end result will be no everlasting life.

    We MUST warn our brothers and sisters of the sure consequences to come for such behavior. This are not our words they are Gods.
