Shirley Chaplin, 54, took the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Trust Hospital to an employment tribunal, claiming that taking off a necklace bearing a crucifix would ”violate her faith”.
The trust said the move was not specifically about the crucifix, but about health and safety concerns about patients grabbing necklaces.

Sorry, but this doesn’t wash.
Are all necklaces banned for all staff?
And, how do they explain that she been wearing it for 30 years?
How do they treat Orthodox Jews with their garments. Sikhs with their daggers.
You see the “King” aka the gooferment is a natural rival for the loyalty of the people with the “Church”. Been that way since forever when the serfs would seek the protection of the church. And the gooferment, a green eyed monster, can stand no competition.
So look for Obamacare to seek to cripple its rival here. Just like there.
