Posted on 10/07/2005 9:46:47 PM PDT by Mount Athos
Novelty pig calendars and toys have been banned from a council office in case they offend Muslim staff.
Workers in the benefits department at Dudley Council, West Midlands, were told to remove or cover up all pig-related items, including toys, porcelain figures, calendars and even a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.
Bosses acted after a Muslim complained about pig-shaped stress relievers delivered to the council in the run-up to the Islamic festival of Ramadan.
Muslims are barred from eating pork in the Koran and consider pigs unclean.
Councillor Mahbubur Rahman, a practising Muslim, backed the ban. He said: Its a tolerance of peoples beliefs.
nooo i've been olded nooo
Oh, my. This is political correctness scraping from the bottom of the barrel.
No one asked the pigs how they feel on the matter.
please stop the shouting. it is obnoxious. *rolling eyes*
HAhaHAhaHAha! What a bunch of losers!
Why should they go back? They are here to slowly dominate us, and through our own pc stupidity and spiritual blindness their plan is succeeding.
The Islamic population in the West is growing in leaps and bounds, while Western populations aren't even keeping up the status quo. Islam is constantly gaining new rights to exercise and spread their satanic beliefs in our very midst. They erect new mosques somewhere every week, and have gained the right to wail there call to prayer through loudspeakers in our cities. They can now exercise limited sharia law in Canada. They have gained the right to have Islam taught in California public schools, and as the article reveals they forcing their will on us and we allow it.
In light of all these bloodless gains, I don't see any reason why a religion of domination should leave when victory for them is in plain sight.
So off we go to 'conquer' them in Afghanistan and Iraq by toppling governments and forcing them to mix democracy with Islamac law and tradition. Unfortunately, anything mixed with Islam is still evil and dangerous. Meanwhile, we hand them victories inside our own countries by giving them 'rights' and pandering to them.
Logic and reason have been murdered in the West, and the evil barbarians are clever enough to take advantage of the opening. God save America.
Where's PETA in all this?
Probably hiding - Arabs eat petas for lunch!
And just when I was for putting the 'ham' back in Mohammed.
This is a Labour council we're talking about. Labour in local government is generally insane.
I wish you were right but according to this blog poor Piglet was banned in Tory-controlled Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council.
My mistake. Appalling.
Land of Hope and Glory?
I live on the South Coast, which is sort of the Red State area of England. It's still the land of hope and glory here - in my constituency, the Tory won with a crushing majority.
However if he's an utter wimp on Muslims, it won't make much difference.
I just finished watching BBC Last Night of the Proms 2004 on DiscoveryHD (amazing technology). The bozo announcer seemed to apologize for the "jingoistic nationalism".
May God save the Queen and her country.
Thanks for posting this. I didn't read about this a week ago so it's new news to me.
After the NY and London bombs, surely many people are offended to anything related to Islam. What if they voice their objection and the council bans anything related to Islam too... That would be called 'tolerant'.
It expresses my sentiments on this subject rather succinctly.
The West is in a cultural war just as surely as in a military war. Both must be won.
I'm offended by liberals. Can we ban them in the workplace? Not that many of them work....
What is a council that is referred to in the article? Any idea what a council estate is?
council estate == British welfare housing project
And yet, parts of the West are slowly waking up. I hope
Thank you. Are those things self-governed in some fashion.
