CWN Editor's Note: The United States Department of Health and Human Services has withdrawn its ultimatum to St. Francis Hospital South in Tulsa to extinguish its chapel sanctuary lamp or risk the loss of federal funding.

An attorney at Becket, the public interest law firm representing the hospital, said that the government “has seen the light and has abandoned its attempt to force an Oklahoma hospital to blow out a small candle or stop serving elderly, disabled, and low-income patients.”
