Nurse suspended for offering prayer

In Britain a nurse has been suspended for offering to pray for a patient.
Caroline Petrie, a committed Christian, has been accused by her employers of failing to demonstrate a "personal and professional commitment to equality and diversity".

[ ... ]

She insists she has never forced her own religious beliefs on anyone but politely inquired if the elderly patient wanted her to pray for her – either in the woman's presence or after the nurse had left the patient's home.
Maybe next time she should ask instead if the patient would like her to sacrifice a goat in the patient's name.
