A U.K Court of Appeal has upheld the decision to dismiss a medical professional who attempted to offer a Bible to a cancer patient
According to court documents, the nurse also told the patient “that if he prayed to God he would have a better chance of survival.”
Sarah Kuteh, a 50-year-old mother of three, was given the sack from her job at Darent Valley Hospital in Dartford, Kent, in 2016 for repeatedly talking to patients about her faith and handing out a bible, in breach of Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) rules.
A ruling, published last week by the U.K Court of Appeal, stated that on June 3 2016 a patient at the hospital had complained about Ms Kuteh’s conduct.
The court heard how the patient likened the incident to a ‘Monty Python skit’, which he said was ‘very bizarre’ – in which she encouraged him to sing along with Psalm 23 with her.
Moving on, the Christian Legal Centre – which represents Ms Kuteh – said she is currently in discussion with her legal team to consider her next step.
Many praised Kuteh for her passionate presentation of the gospel in the workplace.
“Many Ghanaian Christians have a habit of talking about Jesus all the time, even though in the UK it is seen to be culturally inappropriate,” tweeted the CEO of London City Mission, Graham Miller. “Praise the Lord for Sarah’s compassionate heart and courage!”
