Does the queen answers to the Vatican, yes
Is the Vatican the synagogue of Satan, yes
Who controls the 1 mile square, the Vatican.
Babylon of old times has always been.
New Babylon is almost ready. The people are conditioned to deny what's evil and claim it's good.

How naive! The Roman Catholic Church has declared Freemasonry inimical to Christianity and you don't think it matters that someone who is possibly a practising Mason has been attending the head of the Church of England? Many Christians would not approve of this. This may be all a storm in a tea cup. But it DOES matter to those who believe Freemasonry is Satanic. It only doesn't matter to those who think Freemasonry is not against Christianity. That's totally naive.
Naive? You haven't done basic research.
The masons in this country are an overtly protestant group. That's why the catholic church is inimical to them. They also don't generally let catholics join, that's kind of the point. But in foundation they are a protestant christian entity, and the Church of England is obviously protestant.
actually no, not at all.
Freemasonry allows men of all faiths to enter, including Catholics. (I am proof of that) Masonry is not a religion.
It's the Catholic church that doesn't want it's members becoming masons.
see this for clarification.
Wow! What a desperately weak effort at a$$ covering. Fashion statement indeed...
I follow your point but this statement was just ridiculous. Really? just some arbitrary fashion?

The Catholics join other groups then like The Lions, Knights of Columbus, or the Shriners?
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic-only organization and the Shriners are part of Masonry.

What is most ridiculous, is that both of you are unwilling to accept the possibility that it is just something as simple as a fashion accessory and are so blinded that you feel it necessary to disregard and overly criticize my opinion.
Denying ignorance does not mean denying realistic and simple possibilities/explainations.

FOR TLR Skip to the bottom
The pentagram, largely associated with satanism due to media portrayal, found its "stigma" from the church
(Roman Catholic I believe) circa 400bce-ish. Before then, among tons of other things most likely, it was thought of by Pythagoras to represent the perfect harmony in nature. This was a notion that he brought to greece from his time in the Egyptian mystery schools. After establishing his school in Greece, he and his fellow Pythagorians used it to extract golden ratios. At simple pentagram represents three levels of harmony of the golden ratio within its lines. Pythagoras was using the pentagonal ratios to develop a new musical scale for the Lyre, a very popular 7 string instrument of the time.
Pentagram had its origins of ill perception originating from Pythagoras' study of the ratios represented within the individual segments. He found that while it represented perfection in harmony, one couldn't actually achieve it in practice. His practice being the development of a musical scale. The church then decreed the composing Tritones that gave way to this imperfection of harmony were to be disallowed from their canon. The pentagram representing the Tritone, was seen by many to represent what was "bad" in the eyes of the church.
The pentagram is a five pointed star commonly associated with Wicca, Ritual magick, Satanism, and Masonry. The Pentagram has a long and complex history as a religious symbol. Found scrawled in caves of ancient Babylonia, the five pointed star was copied from the star shaped pattern formed by the travels of the planet Venus in the sky.
It was not until the twentieth century that the pentagram became associated with Satanism, probably due to misinterpretation of symbols used by ceremonial magicians.
In Wiccan/Pagan lore, the pentagram symbolizes the five elements- earth, air, water, fire, and spirit. The Wiccan emblematic pentagram faces point upward to symbolize the triumph of spirit over matter; the Satanic pentagram is transposed, point downwards, to symbolize earthly gratification, or the triumph of the individual over dissolution. Some Wiccan initiatory grades also utilize a reversed pentacle, although for different purposes.
Never argue with an idiot they drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

Now there must be someone close by this hospital so stop on over and find out if this is normal for nurses to wear at this location or an individual thing and if she is merely wearing a "fashion accessory".
Some hospitals like the one this one might represent could have been a masonic hospital - yes the mason's did historically run some hospitals in England.
