...rather than persecuting Christians.
From today's Times:
A CHRISTIAN hospital worker is facing the sack after refusing orders to remove her crucifix on health and safety grounds. Helen Slatter 43, was told by bosses at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital to remove her cross as it 'could harbour infection'.
She was summoned to a disciplinary meeting and warned she would be sent home unless she took it off. Slatter, a devout Catholic, claims she is being forced to choose between her faith and her job. She has worked at the hospital for five years as a phlebologist, collecting blood from patients.
The hospital authorities assure us that it has nothing to do with Religion and everything to do with hygiene.
