Saying “God bless” at work prohibited in the UK

Also from the UK came the news that an employee with the London Borough Council has been suspended from work for nearly two months because he encouraged a homeless woman with an incurable medical condition to look to God for help - after doctors told her they had given up hope. Duke Amachree (53) is a Homelessness Prevention officer with Windsworth Council and has been on the job for almost 18 years. He is also a member of the UK World Evangelism Church in London. In an investigatory interview on March 17, Mr Amachree was told he should not raise the issue of religion at work. He was told it was inappropriate to “ever talk about God” or even say “God bless”.
