Winnie the Pooh and Piglet Banned in the Name of Religious Tolerance
The Home of Uncommon Sense ^ | 10/04/2005 | Craig DeLuz

In order to avoid offending Muslim co-workers, those who work in Dudley Council, West Midlands are prohibited from displaying toy pigs; including the popular Winnie the Pooh and Piglet dolls.

At least they are also banning muslim extremists...

You would think they would be more offended by one of their religious folks removing someones head. It's not like they were reading the book and found out the bookmark was a strip of bacon.

Hold on a second, Pooh is not eating piglet, they are friends........Jeez! I used to live near Pooh Bridge, Ashdown forest, it's a beautiful place.
I really think this is crazy. Way over the top and if it were me I'd rather get fired then bow down to a bunch of muslims.

Yes, but Piglet is considered unclean. Have any of them done a pit check lately?

That argument doesnt wash! Piglet is a toy, a cartoon not real. There is no real flesh to consider unclean! If a worker were to bring in a hogs head, i can see the problem but this is a cuddly toy! Next thing you know, they will not allow you to eat ham at work or in a public place in case it causes offense!

Pigs are anathema to the Jews too, right? And much in the same way as they are to Muslims. Then why wasn't this act of "tolerance" handed out to them too?

I say, this is nothing but Dhimmitude, in its pure and simple form.

Britain needs to understand that more than worry about illegal immigrants, it has to take up to task its very volatile Muslim population, fed evermore so by illegal Muslim "immigration".

Jews don't force you to join Judaism, cut your head off, blow themselves up, tax you because your not Jewish, destroy other religious buildings because they aren't Synagogues..

I would display every type of pig known to Man and defy them to suppress MY rights. We FReepers know that a non-govt entity can't suppress 1st amendment (or any other) rights, but the law says that all employees must be treated equally.

If this happened at my job, I would in all seriousness say that pigs are at the center of my value system.

And neither do a lot of them. It is silly for the Brits to cave in on this and the Burger King thing from a few weeks ago. Utter nonsense.

It's so obviously simple. Having pig mascots around the troops is the way to defeat the terrorists!

Precisely why this courtesy was never needed to be shown to the Muslims.

Why? What has pooh and piglet ever done? We don't want these guys to eat them.

Just goes to show you, multiculturalism cannot work. Well it will if one culture is willing to completely bend to a pretzel to make accomodations for the other. I suppose the one bending will be the Christians???

Representations of living things are forbidden under strict Islam. Pig flesh is forbidden too (makes people take on the charactistics of pigs such as "sloth and adultery").

Someone should float the suggestion of inviting him to be Grand Marshall in the next parade.

I could see them putting into effect a ban on heating up bacon in the breakroom microwave (pig grease may splatter, scents may linger...).

And some schools have prohibited students from bringing in PBJ sandwiches in case one student may be allergic to peanuts.

So, swine are evil merely for existing? I mean, it's not as though Piglet gets eaten.

Don't bother with Pooh. Just fill your bumper with Piglet, Porky Pig and Piggy Bank pics. That should do the trick. :)
