A doctor from the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, has apologized for offending Christians at a conference on nursing. It was at the National Practitioner Conference in Arlington, Virginia that the doctor offered a slide presentation of his work on Hepatitis C. One of his slides showed a man crucified to a cross with his groin draped and a doctor listening to his liver.

A Catholic League member was in the audience and took offense to this portrayal.

Both the Catholic League nurse and the league’s national office wrote to the doctor stating their complaint. We are pleased to say that the doctor has said he is sorry for what he did and that he will never use the slide again.
