DALLAS (ABP, TAB) — The church family of Thomas Eric Duncan, Ebola patient, and Louise Troh, Duncan’s girlfriend who is in quarantine, have been challenged to treat potential carriers as children of God who need love rather than lepers in a sermon on Oct. 5. “It’s certainly a terrible thing that’s happened. … (But) we treat people as people and not patients,” said George Mason, pastor of Wilshire Baptist Church, Dallas, in an interview with CNN Oct. 6. Mason visited Troh and members of her family in quarantine earlier that day to deliver a packet of about 100 notes of encouragement from church members and to “talk at a spiritual level.”
