Thirteen years after I began writing on End-times by telling what the Lord told me about Bible prophecies being fulfilled, and including detailed coverage of the persecution of a registered nurse (The Endgame is Now in Play), we have today’s most welcome news in The Times:
Here’s my sharing Christian Concern’s Fbk entry of last Friday:
Victory for Christian Nurse Sacked for Wearing a Cross tells of the harassment and vilification this other nurse had to endure, as indicated in this extract (emphases added)
‘…In June 2020, Mrs Onuoha had been forced out of her job as an NHS theatre practitioner at Croydon University Hospital in South London following what she described as a two-year campaign waged against her by superiors and NHS bosses….
From 2015, however, a succession of line managers asked Mrs Onuoha to either remove her cross , conceal it, or (else) face “escalation.” Each time Mrs Onuoha politely declined the requests, explaining that her necklace is a symbol of her deeply held Christian faith and that she had worn it at work for many years. The issue escalated in August 2018 when bosses at Croydon Health Services NHS Trust ordered her to remove the cross saying it was a breach of the Trust’s Dress Code and Uniform Policy and therefore a health risk to her and to patients…
After taking legal action, during the full hearing in October, the Trust had argued that wearing the cross necklace was an infection risk. However, Employment Judge Dyal and two lay members, Mrs Foster-Norman and Ms Forecast, have now ruled that: “Applying common sense, it is clear to us that the infection risk posed by a necklace of the sorts the Claimant used to wear, when worn by a responsible clinician such as the Claimant, who complied with handwashing protocol, was very low.”
The Tribunal also stated that the rejection of Mary’s grievance was “offensive and intimidating. It failed to properly grapple with the complexity of the issues. No real thought seems to have been given to whether it was really appropriate to discipline the Claimant for doing something that in fact many others in the workforce (including more senior colleagues who worked just as closely with patients) were doing unchallenged. Equally, no real thought was given to the Claimant’s point that others were wearing religious apparel in clinical areas and that she should be treated equally to them.”
The Tribunal has also found that Croydon Health Services NHS Trust constructively dismissed Mrs Onuoha “without reasonable and proper cause” and that the dismissal was unfair and discriminatory.
Furthermore, it has ruled that the dress code policy was “applied in an arbitrary way and in a way that was not proportionate” and that there was “no cogent explanation” why plain rings, neckties, kalava bracelets, hijabs and turbans were permitted but a cross necklace was not (paras 270-271 of judgment.)…’
Hallelujah! Thank and praise You Lord…MORE Lord…
