children’s hospital in Milwaukee is facing a wave of criticism after officials there hired a transgender activist as a chaplain.
The activist/chaplain, who was hired by Children’s Wisconsin, “has shared a poem titled ‘Jesus at the Gay Bar’ and started a GoFund me page for her partner to have her breasts removed,” the Daily Wire reported.
The hospital distributed flyers that said, “Meet Your New Chaplain: Kate Newendorp,” with pronouns listed as “she/her/hers” and her partner’s listed as “they/he.”
“Working in a pediatric hospital is a dream come true!!” Newendorp states on the flier, as The Federalist reported. “I am so excited to be working alongside everyone and am pumped to be part of the team. Think of me as your friendly next-door neighbor!”
“We have already seen that Children’s holds little value for respecting deeply held religious beliefs, given their recent COVID Religious Waiver Committee. But this feels like a step too far. This feels like they have actively recruited activists into this field to further their progressive agenda,” one Children’s Wisconsin employee told The Federalist. “I think this situation really calls into question who do we want guiding the spiritual development of our children — especially children who are stuck in a hospital, isolated, sometimes alone, and extremely vulnerable and easily impressionable.”
The reference to the hospital’s past history vis religious beliefs is a reference to fellow Chaplain Ian Butts, who spoke with Children’s staffers who submitted religious exemption requests in order to avoid having to take the COVID-19 vaccine.
