I've been annoyed by this story for a few days.

Other care workers of other faiths are allowed to wear things that show their religion so why can't Christians?
I feel we live in an ever increasingly PC country where all faiths and those of non faith are to be accepted equally - that is, as long as they're not Christians - in which case you're faith is not allowed! I feel that Political Correctness in the UK has been getting more and more prejudiced towards Christians.
In most work places if you are a Christian you are not allowed to say you are or talk about your faith.
I get mad every Christmas when I find it increasingly harder to buy cards with Christian relevance ! I accept other people's faiths or no faith - why can't the leadership of this country respect mine? We have giant posters outside the Town Hall that change with every different faith's festival. For the last two years we have had neither an Easter banner or a Christmas banner!
From the posts I have read on my f'list's journals I feel that Christians in the US have a bit too much say in politics and in the UK they have way too little! I vote for a middle ground!
OK. Christian rant over - thanks for listening x
