I read an article today about how a chaplain has resigned because the hospice where she worked won’t allow her to use the words “God” or “Lord” in public settings.

Here’s a link to the article: http://www.sun-sentinel.com/community/news/bocaraton/sfl-flphospice0318pnmar18,0,5601993.story

I understand her resignation. I also understand the hospice wanting to disallow Ms Signorelli’s use of “religious” words. Christians may lament that the United States is now a post-Christian society, but that’s the reality. What kind of behavior should we expect from a culture that has turned its back on God? No surprises here. The only thing in this article that gave me pause was this: “None of the six other chaplains objected to the ban on God’s name, she said.”

However, this might be a good thing. We do not honor His name in this country. So perhaps it’s better that these “chaplains,” who do not object to the deletion of God’s name, do not speak His name at all.
