The situation would be no different if it were a Christian wanting an Islamic symbol removed, or for that matter an anti-Nazi demanding a swastika be removed, or a capitalist lackey demanding a hammer-and-sickle be removed.
 
In all those cases it would be essentially trivial. Symbols don't affect anything: attributing  importance  to them is basically childish, like believing in magic.
 
Then why was it so important to him the crucifix to be removed?
Because he disagrees with me. D'oh!
Why was he risking his daughter health for such a "childish" thing?
Because he didn't think it was childish. D'oh!
It seems the nurses were more adult thant...
Yes, in my view they were. They would also have been childish had they refuses to remove it.
 
The guy was ill-mannered at best: the nurses were civilised about it.
 
What would be completely wrong would be to somehow spin that into thinking that Christians are more adult than Muslims.

The matter was interesting in a French perspective because Muslim parents/patients have been quite violent in the recent years. Several doctors and nurses are attacked every years because this or that, in general, they refuse that their daughter/wife be examined by a male doctor. So much so that some hospital had to create safe rooms to take care of these patients and toughen up the security.

What often shocks people is that people making such a rant are often of French origns and newly converted. But it is also true that this is a very small minority and that most Muslims accept to be treated by whoever is around.

So that article is rather one more drop pourred by a rightist newspaper in the jar of anti-Muslim sentiment.
I am a free donkey!

You can repeat it as often as you like. It is just that no-one but you seems to believe it, and that number is likely to swindle to sub-zero with every repetition.

Women hold their councils of war in kitchens: the knives are there, and the cups of coffee, and the towels to dry the tears.
