Monsignor Rohlf's Threat

In 2003 Monsignor Rohlfs threatened to go to the media against Haitian Hearts if I petitioned for a tribunal court against OSF. I could not hardly believe he was saying this to me and Patricia Gibson was standing in his office agreeing with him. I told him I would anyway and spoke to Bishop Jenky that afternoon.

After reading the article tweeted below, I am now not surprised about Monsignor Rohlf's threat against Haitian Hearts. (The article below has a is "Rohlfs" not "Wallace".)

"Attitudes are more important than abilities. Motives are more important than methods. Character is more important than cleverness. And the heart takes precedence over the head."

Denis Parsons Burkitt, 1911-1993

(Dr. Burkitt was an Irishman who drove across sub-Saharan Africa in his beat up Ford pick up truck. He found many African kids between the ages of 5 and 8 years who had deadly facial tumors. He biopsied the tumor and it was found to be caused by a virus. Who would have thought that a virus could cause a cancer now called Burkitt's lymphoma?)

Social Injustice in Medicine

Science has revolutionized medicine but there was no revolution and no plan for ensuring equal access. Excellence without equity is what you now inherit. It’s the chief human rights problem of twenty-first-century medicine, and only when we’re all under general anesthesia of the soul will we be able to ignore it as the century marches on.
