A Christian nurse from Weston-super-Mare has been suspended for offering to pray for a patient's recovery.
The patient complained to the health trust about Mrs Petrie who follows the Baptist faith.
She was suspended, without pay, on 17 December and will find out the outcome
of her disciplinary meeting next week.
"The woman mentioned it to the sister who did her dressing the following day. She said that she wasn't offended but was concerned that someone else might be. "

Ive seen many a case of christians that turn to prayer instead of getting medical help.. and this to be done by someone who's job it is to give "medical" help is just shocking.
She needs to do her job, and not just turn to easy solutions like prayer, which has never been proven to acctually work. Might as well say: "want me to wish you well?" Maybe it'll come true.
And this was an elder woman, in a difficult situation.. its an easy target to try and push some of that stuff on.

I think if someone was religious, and wanted you to pray for them, they might ask, don't you think?
I think offering it, is a bit like preaching.

When did it become politically correct to rat on someone for offering comfort?
And people wonder why others walk right on over and by people who’ve been hit by cars or are punching toddlers to death in the street.
