Bishop bemoans political correctness

The Island’s Lord Bishop has joined those criticising the decision to place a Christmas nativity scene at Noble’s Hospital away from the public reception area.

It has been put in an inter-denominational chapel.

There has been no official comment from the hospital, but Reverend Robert Patterson says it appears to be a form of political correctness.

If that is so, he says it’s ridiculous. The hospital says it's nothing to do with political correctness and the fear of offending non-Christians, rather the size of the scene - designed to be situated outside - made it impractical to be inside.
