Christian nurse row: now teachers could be disciplined for discussing religion
A new code of practice drawn up by the profession's regulator, the General Teaching Council, states that classroom staff must "promote equality and value diversity".
An alleged lack of commitment to this requirement, which is insisted upon by the Nursing and Midwifery Council, was used to suspend Caroline Petrie, the Christian nurse who offered to pray for an elderly patient.
The GTC draft guidance states that registered teachers must "act respectfully towards all children and young people, parents, carers and colleagues, regardless of their socio-economic background, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, religion or beliefs"....
""There is a witch hunt against Christians and it is time it stopped. Churches pioneered bedside care for the sick and education for the disadvantaged. Now they are being squeezed out by the 'tolerance intelligentsia' who tolerate anything as long as it is not Christianity."
Lets face the facts. These are unusual days for Christians. During the last decades we observed the church decline alongside the moral standards decline. Now we see the more open and public attacks upon all things Christian, whether by politicians or bureaucrats, the increase is very real.
The Liberal politically correct agenda to attack God's witness, Scripture law and doctrine is gaining momentum as month follows month. All western nations are revealing Satan, lust and covetousness taking over the society and its institutions.
What does this tell us today?
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Eph 6.12
