Hospital removes crosses from chapel
news.com.au ^ | 8th April 2009

Posted on 04/08/2009 1:32:25 AM PDT by naturalman1975

CRUCIFIXES, Bibles and all other Christian symbols have been banned from a hospital's chapel when it is not being used for a church service. The Mosman Daily has learnt that Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney has bes been ordered to remove Christian content by New South Wales bureaucrats to avoid offending Muslims, Hindus or other non-Christian believers who may want to pray in the chapel.

Hospital staff say that while the chapel was built for Christians, they now want the chapel to be completely non-denominational.

An inspection of the chapel last week by the Daily found no trace of a crucifix or any other religious symbol inside the chapel.

The Daily has been told that church leaders must bring their own symbols to use in a service.

The chapel building also contains a separate Muslim prayer room.

Too much trouble to roll out the rug then roll it back up when done?

How do you spell Christianity?

S U R R E N D E R

I’m getting more than a little tired of reading reports similar to this. It’s time for some push-back.

This is a Christian nation. End of story.

BTW, I realize this story isn’t about a situation in the U.S., but the same types of things are taking place here.

Since there is a muslim prayer room, why do they have the need to enter the chapel? One room ain't enough for them?

Christians should demand that the rugs or whatever they have in that room be removed when it is not is use.

Why should anyone demand?

If it is their room..

If it is a Loan space then surely the policy will cover the rules.

Gee I hope if my Rosary beads ever spill on chance you wont demand I bend and pick each one up..I may need your help.

Hmmm-There is no reason Christians shouldn’t go into the muzzie prayer room and recite Christian prayers since Christians are to pray constantly.

Because they want to defile it. Think of the Church of the Nativity.

ha ha ha I hope you have tons of rosary beads and leave some behind for someone who doesn't happen to have theirs with them! And if your rosary breaks, I'll be more than glad to help you! :-)

There are two rooms. My point was, since the muslims have their own separate room, then what right do they have to demand Christians to remove crosses that are in a different room?
It's a two way street.

I find it strange that other religions have a hard time sharing space with Christians in a hospital.

Someone needs to put some of those little “Chick Publications” books in the ROP prayer room and stand back to watch the fun!!

Yeah, my thoughts exactly. I want the Muslim prayer room used for chess tournaments when they’re not using it.....
no, wait, one of the chess pieces has a cross on it....and then there’s the bishop......ooooohhh, this is bad.
-————seriously, we’re still in the first wave of this, and it’s too bad no one can see that it MUST BE ADDRESSED NOW, and not capitulated to....another form of the crushing debt we’ll be leaving children and grandchildren is how to deal with what will inevitably be a growing and increasingly aggressive Muslim presence. Including the President himself. So I don’t think we’ll be dealing with it at all. And I did see that this was Australia.

When I was growing up, I went to a Jewish Day school, and we had prayers every morning, in addition to a half day of religious teaching. Over the years the school outgrew the small building we were in, and we rented space in the Church across the street. There was never any question about where we were. It was a church, and there were all sorts of religious symbols all over the place, in every classroom. It never caused us any sort of harm, and it never would have occurred to anyone to request that they hide their religious symbols. We were guests in their church, and we were respectful of the fact.

The only reason that people of one belief must hide and displace the symbols of another religion is because deep down they KNOW that their religion is false, and they have a deeply held belief of inadequacy and hopelessness. Which explains the muslim belief of domination.

What if I wanted to use that room, will the muslim symbols removed? Besides, why do the muslims always get special treatment?

Islam has a hard time sharing anything with anyone anywhere.

Then again, one could debate whether Islam is really a religion, or just a murderous death cult.

Muslim students are allowed to go to leave class to pray at Ft. Hamilton High School in Brooklyn, NY. Catholic, Protestant and Jewish students are not allowed to do so.

Immediately, yes.

It's also a "preview of upcoming attractions".
