Alton Towers scrapped the idea because of poor ticket sales. That was years ago.
What was wrong with the idea ? The date was clearly stated well in advance, how is that a problem. It was only ONE day.

It is discrimination. I would have boycotted them as well and I don't even know what Alton Towers is. Discrimination of any sort shouldn't be tolerated. If one group is expected to tolerate others, than every group should be expected to tolerate others.

The point is they tried it,so just because they had poor ticket sales does`nt mean im going to run back and spend money at their park.
If ticket sales had been high then they would of gone for more days.
I will never have a day out at alton towers again,simply as,and the only people it hurts is alton towers business because i choose to spend my money at other theme parks now.

Yes for me but I'm not into religion either I'm an atheists. Its for me annoying since I do not buy into the religion idea. And it would not do anything for me. Now that being said if a nurse came up to me and asked to pray for me I'd politely tell her no I was ok, but I certainly would not want her to be fired because she offered to pray for me unless she tried to force the issue. If you try and force the issue then yeah get the hell away from me! Its a little bit much to fire her I think.

The way i see it is religion is the biggest form of war,everything boils down to religion.
you cant do this and cant do that !!!
in my opinion if you are from the uk then you should live by uk rules,same with any country.
but they dont give a **** about us,they would rather change laws,etc to suit people from other countrys.

as for the nurse she should of not asked to say a prayer,it could offend someone who does not believe in any religion and it is not in her job title or criteria.
do believe they went too far in getting rid of the poor old lass but rules are rules and without them we would be even worse off than we are now.

we should all go back to the 60s,smoke pot,live life and enjoy the love ????

Well, think about this..

A Christian person is ill and dying, and their nurse is a Satanist.. If their nurse offered to say a prayer to Satan for the ill patient, what do you think would happen? Would that family try to get the nurse fired? I bet the chances of that are pretty high.. So because Christianity is more socially accepted, they are expected to be able to do it without any consequences?

I think getting fired is a little harsh, but as I stated previously in this thread, had the nurse minded her own business (which is exactly what religion is and SHOULD be), then nothing would have happened. Period.

My wife had surgery a while back. Before she went in, the Dr. looked at my wife and told her that he was going to say prayer over her, and that if she did not want him to, he would stop but he would also not perform the surgery. My wife was VERY comforted by the fact that the Dr. was willing to sacrifice his career for his beliefs. The Dr. did pray over my wife, and she came through the surgery ok. I applauded that Dr.

As far as the Satinist nurse saying her prayer, I would politely ask her to stop, but I wouldn't want to have her job for it. I would still appreciate the fact that she is willing to put her career on the line for her beliefs, and if she did not want to work with my wife anymore, then I could totally respect that.

Very good point. If it were reversed everyone would freak the hell out.

In a funny sort of way i guess if i was in hospital and a nurse offered to pray for me, then its fine, if she did it out of sight and not embarrass me if front of everyone. Say for example if a Muslim nurse or a Hindu nurse offered to pray for me, i'd be well embarrassed in the ward, not knowing what was said or done.

Hospitals and Government buildings should be religion free zones, where people can get immediate answers and problems solved without feeling hurt or embarrassed by the actions of others.

For this reason i now feel that the nurse was wrong in offering to pray for someone without know their full religious background.

He'll be dead soon, so it doesn't matter where he is now.

course it matters - if we go by your way of thinking then we may as well release all prisoners because they all be dead soon.

He commited a crime and a heinous one at that so should of died in jail.
When cases come up like this,it always makes me think that some back door deal was done and his release was part of a bigger deal.

Of course it was. The only other reason would be one of compassion, like Biggs.
The are greater things at stake as far as Libya is concerned. Oil.
