Nurse challenges cross necklace ban

from Christian Concern:

A Christian nurse is challenging her former hospital after being forced out of her job because she wouldn’t remove her small cross necklace.

Mary Onuoha was told her small gold cross, clasped to her neck, which she had worn for 40 years as a symbol of her deep Christian faith, was a health and safety risk and “must not be visible.” But no good reason has been shown why Mary’s cross is a risk and people of other faiths and none were allowed to wear jewellery, saris, turbans and hijabs without incident.

This and other evidence points to management being about the visibility of the cross, not genuine health and safety concerns.
