People do not need religious symbols
AT last! Common sense has prevailed regarding so called "religious beliefs", Crucifix row nurse loses tribunal case, Echo, April 11.
For many years I have been reading the letters in this newspaper and see how some people use it as a platform to spout their ideology about who, where, what and why their religion means so much to them.
The nurse, Shirley Chaplin, claims that her faith had been violated because she was asked to remove her crucifix — she needs a reality check.
As I do not know this lady I will not judge her character, only her decision to think that wearing a crucifix signified that she was a Christian.

Taking the symbolism a step further, would it be right to assume that wearing a uniform whether it be a nurse, policeman, fireman etc would make them better people at their profession? Of course not!
We are all vulnerable to making mistakes because we are human and it's normal. We do not need to wear a symbol of religious belief to show people what we are — who we are and what action we take comes from within us all.
With the history books and present day worldwide conflicts going on due to varied religious beliefs, I find it incredible that religion still has any relevance in how we live our lives.
I am not a religious man, however, I do have a code of conduct as to how I behave toward other people and I treat people as I would like to be treated. I do not need to read from any scriptures or wear a symbol to advertise that fact!
