Nurse Fired After Offering to Pray With Patients Before Surgery

Jonathan Petre reports at the U.K. Daily Mail:  

A nurse with 15 years' experience has been sacked after discussing Christianity and offering to pray with patients before operations.

Sister Sarah Kuteh was dismissed for breaching guidelines, even though her job involved asking people preparing for surgery about their religion.

The mother-of-three, who is now suing the hospital for unfair dismissal, said she was offering solace to patients she believed were happy to chat about their beliefs, and described her sacking as "disproportionate and punitive."

"The row comes after [Prime Minister] Theresa May told MPs that Christians should feel able to speak about their faith at work," Petre reports. "The Prime Minister's comments followed criticism by Government watchdog the Equality and Human Rights Commission, highlighted by The Mail on Sunday, of politically correct organisations that curb freedom of expression."
