God... er... Good for Her!

It's reported that a hospice for the dying has banned the word 'God' from use at internal staff meetings.... although the chaplains are still allowed to use it in front of the muggles.

A chaplain at Hospice by the Sea in Boca Raton has resigned, she says, over a ban on use of the words "God" or "Lord" in public settings.

Chaplains still speak freely of the Almighty in private sessions with patients or families but, the Rev. Mirta Signorelli said: "I can't do chaplain's work if I can't say 'God' — if I'm scripted."
