    Back in the 1970's and 80's there was a trend [fad] among nurses called 'Wholistic Nursing".
    It incorporated many Far- Eastern religious aspects, including 'healing touch', among others.
    There was no such talk about separating the practice of nursing from spirituality at that time
    ...and there shouldn't be now.

    I don't fully understand what happened from a quick read through of the article. But anyway, I'm glad she was reinstated.

    This is one of the most asinine statements reeking of PCism I've ever read.

    By this concept, and based on the original reason(?) for the dismissal/suspension, if someone offered me a cigarette, I could reasonably(?) accuse him of trying to corrupt my morals by getting me to smoke!

    PCism is the death of common sense.

    But then again, perhaps PC is not the culprit here; maybe more the modern trend to crush anything remotely associated with Christianity.

    Be interesting what would have happened if the nurse had said, "May I have a seance to channel a cure for you?"
