Re: If You Wear a Cross, You Bear a Cross
I have no problem with people wearing crucifixes, dog collars, hijabs, or whatever. In Canada Sikhs are allowed to wear their turbans in the police force instead of the uniform hat and I don't see why not.

If he had ben doing the job one way for years and they introduced new requirements (same sex sexual counselling) which he felt he was unable to do then I would feel it appropriate that some provision be made. But he appears to have taken on a position knowing that he would be required to provide this counselling.
Although the applicant had found himself capable of assisting same-sex couples in counselling where discussion of sexual issues was not involved, in September 2006 he applied to undertake a diploma course in psycho-sexual therapy (PST) (a new name for sex therapy).
