According to the website of the organisation running a field hospital in New York, volunteers must agree to a pretty eyebrow-raising statement of faith:
I’m not sure this level of non-secularism is warranted or pragmatically useful in such a time.
The organization that set up the coronavirus field hospital in Central Park seemingly makes volunteers agree to their faith-based code, including defining marriage “exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female” and stating that the unrighteous are sentenced to “everlasting punishment in hell.”…
The group, Samaritan’s Purse, is a relief organization run by Franklin Graham, son of the late pastor Billy Graham, an influential religious leader nationwide and in Washington.
Their policy says all volunteers, including health care workers, should read and adhere to a statement of faith, listed on their website.
“The primary mission of Samaritan’s Purse is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and we seek volunteers who have the same mindset. We ask that volunteers review our Statement of Faith and agree to support the ministry guidelines of Samaritan’s Purse,” the website says.
