Skip to comments.Christians haven't got a prayer in 'diversity' Britain...

Nurse Caroline Petrie has been suspended and could even be struck off. What was her offence? Did she turn up drunk? Did she dispense the wrong medicine or forget to empty a bedpan? Was she knocking out prescription drugs to the local pusher?
Perhaps she was guilty of neglect, of deliberate cruelty, or of practising a bit of freelance euthanasia. No. Her 'crime' was to offer to say a prayer for one old lady on the ward. It's what we used to call an act of Christian charity.
But that was enough to bring her to the attention of the 'diversity' nazis at the North Somerset Primary Care Trust.
The next day she got a call from her 'co-ordinator' telling her not to report for work and informing her that her disgraceful behaviour was the subject of a disciplinary hearing.
Mrs Petrie, a committed Christian since she was aged ten when her mother died of breast cancer, routinely offers to pray for her patients' speedy recovery. Many of them find it a great comfort.
In this case, 79-year-old May Phippen said: thanks, but no thanks. No offence given or taken. But when Mrs Phippen mentioned it to another nurse, all hell broke loose.
Administrator Alison Withers ...didn't explain how innocently volunteering to pray for a patient brought the game into disrepute or how it compromised Mrs Petrie's discharge of her professional duties.
If I was in hospital, I'd be flattered if someone wanted to pray for my recovery.
The power of prayer has long been acknowledged as part of the healing process. That's why hospitals have chaplains and there are Bibles in bedside cabinets.

Just imagine how they would have reacted had Mrs Petrie been a Muslim offering to pray to Allah
IF she was muslim and offered a prayer to Allah (pigsh1t be upon him) they’d have given her an award for kindness.
Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.
The diversity cored genuinely enjoy the feeling of cool, razor sharp steel piercing their jugular veins while hearing “Allah Ackbar” being chanted as they expire.
Why is Britain suicidal?
My husband was in the hospital for five weeks after a horrible car accident. One of his nurses told him that she had been praying for him and she cried because she felt bad for how seriously he was injured. It made me cry and it made my husband feel better - like she really cared about him. I can’t imagine someone would get angry because a nurse offered to pray for them. Even the security guard at the hospital told us he was praying for my husband as did the first EMS guy to the accident. Since when did prayer become a bad thing?
Definitely not guilty.
I pray that your husband is doing well.
Obamacare will be terrible in so many ways.
My pastor makes the rounds at an area Catholic hospital. One day he brought the Eucharist to an elderly Catholic woman. She was furious and demanded that he leave.
This is where society has taken so many ... down the road to secularism. By her actions, this old woman rejected Christ. My prayers for her conversion of heart.

Thanks. He’s hanging in there.
Bizarre. How Catholics can turn against God as they approach their time of death I can't imagine. Any chance, though, she was senile or delirious?

What was her reason?

I remember the outcry over labeling certain vinyl record jackets with warnings about the nature of the content. The arguments were limited to censorship and nanny-ism. That was 25 years ago.
Today, the debate is about freedom and Nazism.
If today your hear Gods voice , harden not your heart.
Exactly. Mrs Petrie signed and agreed to the code of conduct. It is there to protect all parties. Her job is not to provide religious comfort in any shape or form. All she had to do was offer up a prayer in private. The code of conduct still stands and Mrs Petrie would still be in breach if she continued.
