Doctor told his Christmas text was an 'unwelcome intrusion'
A DERBYSHIRE paediatrician has been accused of sending an "unwelcome" text in which he wished a colleague "a peaceful Christmas".
The claim was revealed during a hearing into Belper-born Dr David Drew's claim for unfair dismissal from Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust after he emailed a prayer to colleagues.
After an investigation into his conduct, it was recommended he "refrain from using religious references" at work.
The trust noted Dr Drew, 64, had sent the Christmas text to colleague Rob Hodgkiss. Its report said: "While DD may regard such messages as benign, RH perceived them as aggressive and unwelcome intrusions into his private time."
Unfortunately,You are all too correct, Cliff. Apparently the great white sharks down under didn't stop this nonsense from swimming to their shores, I doubt even the Catholic Church will have an easy time stopping there, Bishops launch campaign against gay marriage. It seems like the Commonwealth and its American cousins are having similar problems, queer marriages, queer sex, q.v.,Homosexuality, or even Christmas greetings. While most Jews would like you to add to have a happy Hanukkah to your greetings, at least in this country Christmas greetings aren't a problem yet--except in public schools.
