Nurses that are Satanic

  1. OK, Here's one for ya.

    There is an ER nurse in one of the local hospitals, who is satanic. (hard to believe here in the south). Anyway, several members of a church are trying to get her fired.

    Now, she is not doing anything wrong. From what I understand, she is a good nurse. It's not like she goes around chanting and wears black nailpolish & stuff. I think she does where a pentagram around her neck (which is not a symbol of the devil, although people think it is, since it is always associated w/ it).

    Here is my question. Should she be allowed to be a nurse, especially, in the ER, where serious cases are & people die?

    My opinion (which I am not a nurse yet), is that, This country was founded on religious freedom. People forget that. It should be no ones business what anyone believes in. If she was offering the death of a person up to the devil, or something, that is wrong. Although as Christians (I'm catholic), we offer up souls to God. See the double edge sword there. And why is she a nurse? Nurses are suppose to help people. Real satanic people do not help people. There might be an alterior motive to her actions. Who knows.

    I know that one of the BIG reasons I want to become a nurse, is that it is a form of ministry to God - helping your fellow man/women. AND, I do want to say a prayer to God when I know someone is going to die.

    So, what do you think?

    If she's knows her stuff during a crisis, I'd prefer that she be at my bedside than someone who's beliefs are similar to my own but not up to snuff. She could worship pickled eggs for all I care.

    Please excuse me if I don't get the reason for this question. I guess I must not be functioning well today, but what is the problem???

    I think that is the whole thing. If you know what your doing, than that should be enough. Don't try and get someone fired if they are doing their job, but just don't happen to belive in what you do.

    My hats off to you. You hit the nail on the head.

    Some people are trying to get her fired because of what/who she belives in, as in her faith.

    My question was, in not some many words - Should she be allowed to be a nurse, not matter what her faith is?

    I think yes. Many people who know about this give me flax in regards to my opinion. One, went as far as to say that I'm not a Christian because of my view. Needless to say what I said in reply to him.

    Let the girl do her job, if she does is right.

    You have to be reality-oriented for the accuracy required to be a nurse. I've know some satanic people, who were okay. Basically they just believe in Satan/Devil/Luficer like Christians believe in Jesus/Son of God/Messiah.

    I think it is all superstisious Bible related stuff. I don't hold anything against devil worshipers, but like with any type of believe in the unseen, you have to stop and think.

    Are you sure she is Satanic? There are several other types of religion out there that use the pentagram as a symbol of their beliefs such as Wiccans and Pagans? It's hard to believe that anyone with any kind of intelligence would worship Satan. However, as long as she is doing her job, and not trying to proselytize others, I do not see a problem. I myself am an atheist and I wouldn't want others to judge my nursing abilities by my beliefs.

    Nursing is NOT a ministry og God as you say. Nurses need to get out of that mind set to be considered truely professional. Time to update the way we approach our jobs. As for the Satanic nurse...are you sure she is Satanic and not just a Wiccan or Pagan? There is a big difference in beliefs.

    Religious beliefs do not belong in the work place.

    The chapel at our hospital recently became a "sprirtual center".

    Chrisitians need to understand that they do not hold the corner on religious freedoms.............. we all can believe what we want AS LONG AS WE DO NOT FORCE IT ON OTHERS.

    Thank you so much for your response. I agree with you, as you're totally correct. Even God ...in my belief gives us a choice in who will serve. And this country is supposed to be about freedom of religion.

    Although I disagree with her choice of religion, I feel what those in that community are trying to do is illegal. And what they're trying to do could easily be done to Chrisitians, by those who don't believe in God! They can't and shouldn't have it both ways!

    This is only my opinion and doesn't reflect any belief on my part, that this should be the belief of all Christians

    Ok - I knew I might be in for trouble posting this.

    1. I am told that she is satanic. And I did state that the pentagram (spelling??) does not stand for the devil, but is often associated w/ it. One of the patients that she attended was asked if she is a "Christian" (which in the south, often comes out of peoples mouths - don't know why). And she said no & told them that she believed in the devil. Now, on occassions, in order to shut one of the outspoken southern baptists that claimed I was not a chrisitan because I was catholic(no offense to anyone out there) in my area, I smarted off and told him that I didn't believe in Jesus. That made it worse. By the way, this was in front of the courthouse, where they preach from stands. So much for separation of church and state.

    2. I did not mean to imply that on a whole - nursing is a ministry of God. What my faith teaches us that to minister to your fellow man is what God wants. So, for ME, it is a way that I can do that. To HELP. And Florence Nightingale had that in mind for being a nurse. But, the LTC center where I hope to get a job at, is a catholic founded one & the hospice, where they encourage prayers at the time of death. This place is highly respected by all faiths and there is a long waiting list to get in, due to it's outstanding care.

    3. The only reason I posted this is because I felt that this nurse was being treated unjustly. I get enough flax living in the area I do for being a catholic, and have been viewed as satanic/pagan. So, I wanted to see what other peoples views were on the matter. For, I seem to be torn. But I DO NOT BELIEVE that ANYONE should get fired due to their beliefs. Heck, here you still get judged for being a yankee.

    But, it looks as though we are having a lot of transplants move here from up north, so it is not as bad as it was 5 years ago.

    Sounds like some serious ignorance on the "church goers" part to me. They have no way of knowing what religion or lack there of she partakes in by her wearing a pentagram. And frankly it doesn't matter. It's not like she's going offer them up as a sacrifice after tending their wound

    Unfortunately there are always IDIOTS that make Christians look like uneducated hillbillies by not using some common sense.

    No offense to you, since you did state your support of her working, but why even associate with people who are more concerned with witch hunts that worshiping God as a congregation?

    If she can do her job, it's no one's business what she believes.
