In the news
A duck!
The Telegraph reports on attempts to remove the Bible from some English hospitals:
The century-old tradition of bibles in hospital bedside lockers could be ended in one health trust today after officials decided they might offend ethnic minorities.
Senior executives at the University of Leicester NHS Trust said it was also concerned that the books helped to spread the MRSA bacteria and it would rule on whether to remove them from wards.
The proposal angered Christians and Muslims who accused the hospital of political correctness.
