A nurse in Australia who called for "a world free of homosexuals" was suspended from practice on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland pending determination that he is fit for the job.
Matthew George Price, who declared himself a "cured" homosexual, published an antigay letter in the alumni newsletter of Xavier College (pictured) in New South Wales in April, according to the Brisbane Times. The letter mentioned a campaign against same-sex relationships in which Price claimed he had appealed to President Barack Obama by letter.
"My biggest push has been in the United States of America," wrote Price, according to the Brisbane Times. "The country needs as much help as possible at the moment -- change will happen. Then hopefully it will spread around the world."
The Queensland Nursing Council suspended Price, although a spokeswoman declined to elaborate on the reason for the suspension, referring only to a section of the nursing code that concerns a nurse's "health, conduct, or competence."
