Very eloquently put, Rita.
I consider myself Neo-Buddhist, but I have nothing but respect for all religions. I have wonderful friends who send me emails worshipping God and Jesus, and I love to read them, because they convey how I feel about my spirituality.
Faith is universal. Our Gods (and Goddesses) may be a little different- some of us may not believe in anything but themselves.......... and that's ok too!
As Rita said, as nurses we are here to respect our patient's individual wishes. I will always do that, regardless of our different backgrounds/ethnicity/beliefs.
Love thy neighbour........... be he black, white, Christian, Muslim, Jew, etc etc.
How dull would it be if we were all alike?
