Skip to comments.Britain: Muslim 'Cultural Sensitivity' Runs Amok
Posted on 04/21/2012 5:21:49 AM PDT by BCW
The largest university in London plans to impose a ban on the sale of alcohol on campus to accommodate the "cultural sensitivity" of its Muslim students.
London Metropolitan University's Vice Chancellor, Malcolm Gillies, says it would be unwise to "cling" to a "nostalgic" view where the vast majority wants alcohol to be available. Instead, he says that he believes the university should take account of diverging views, namely those of Muslims, who now comprise 20% of the university's 30,000 students.
"Many of our students do come from backgrounds where they actually look on drinking as a negative. We therefore need to rethink how we cater for that 21st-century balance," Gillies declared in an interview. "What we don't want is the tyranny of a majority view," he added.
Gillies' proposals to re-engineer social life on campus have, not surprisingly, generated a mostly negative response from students, many of whom say a ban on alcohol smacks of politically correct pandering run amok.
Muslims, too, are unhappy with Gillies. Far from thanking him for his multicultural activism, Muslims say they are "offended" by his "generalizing about their beliefs."

What happens when Islam reaches a certain percentage??? There's an e-mail that use to be passed around that list percentages...I can't find it...and what happens as freedom cease and total religious control takes favor...
Coming soon to America. Mark my words.
Why does Argentina have 1,000,000 Muslims in it?
A Baptist group should chime in that they agree...that would ensure the administration backs down real fast...
Graphics are very slanted in favor of the Moose-slimes. Show the map/chart as a percent of total population and you get a very different story.
Here’s the REAL DATA! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_Muslim_population
If you really look at the numbers 90+% of all Moose-slimes live in the “crap holes” of the world. That should tell you something!
Less than 5% of the total UK population is Moose-slime. That’s just enough to be a “Royal” pain in the arse.
Here's a diverging view! Boot the slammies out of the UK!
The pubs are next.
In favor of the tyranny of a minority, it seems. Next, they can require that all two-legged people tie their legs together so that one-legged people will feel more included.
“What we don’t want is the tyranny of a majority view, however, we are entirely thrilled with the tyranny of the minority view.”
My next door neighbors are muzzies. I am looking forward once the weather warms up to having a pig roast. Hopefully the wind will be blowing from the south so the smell permiates all through his house. Bon apetit!
Democracy and free speech are just SO passe...
They list Palestine as a country.
It’s a sad state of affairs when an entity that suppose to be unbiased - isn’t - but continues to tout itself as genuine...to give in in order to sell papers...and then ask the rest of us to agree that reporters and other news media types are to be looked at with respect....
I think we are all past that at this point!
