Why Bentley Fired the Priest from Crew
The reason: “I have been given is that there are too many people of different faiths to warrant a Christian chaplain. There have been no complaints made against me and my position is to help people, and not just those who are Christians.”
The statement was made by the fired reverend, who understandably has reason to feel a little upset. Bentley themselves issued a statement saying basically the same thing, that they have “wide range of faiths and want to take a multi-faith outlook.”
But employees, at least some of them, don’t agree and have signed a petition to bring Cook back.
“Everyone is really angry about it as a few of us have been on courses with him,” said one employee in an interview with UK daily The Mirror.
