PC Gone Mad!

Sorry time for another alcohol fueled rant, well this is supposed to be a virtual pub is it not.?

Apparantly some school is not allowed to server turkey as an xmas lunch for the kids.
well they have to go for the more muslim friendly dish so as not to upset our non Christian kids. Also overhearing a conversation in a supermarket its now not possible to buy a nativity scene for Christmas in the local area.

Sorry but as the Majority religion in this country perhaps we should insist on the serving of pork during Yom Kippur or gorging during Ramadan, why should we not be able to celebrate our religious holidays how we want and not have to be dictated to by the MINORITY groups in this country.

There's going to be one hell of backlash shortly which will make the crusades look like an espisode of the magic roundabout.
The number of protest votes for the BNP will go balistic, this is exactly how Nazi Germany started.!!!!

Absolutely - this reminds me of the BA worker being told she could not wear a cross around her neck for fear it would offend. For us to have a society tolerant of other religions and cultures, we can never succeed by being intolerant of our original culture. People have got to stop being so thin skinned about it. Especally when these kind of rules enevitably get made up by some white middle class social worker pinko lefty tree hugger who's managing to get offended on someone else's behalf.
It does nothing to to make our society more tolerant - instead it has directly the opposite effect and causes division and, as you say, a swing vote for tossers in the BNP style extreme. I'll take odds that 99.9% of Muslims couldn't care less if their children end up eating some turkey at schoold over the Christmas period. Perhaps, instead of banning turkey, we should be introducing some tradisional Muslim dishes on the dates that coincide with their festival dates. And at both Christmas and these other dates as long as there is an alternative available so no-one is forced to eat anything they find distasteful then the job's a good'un. Surely inclusion is better than exculsion and bans on this and that.

Yes exactly, much more eloquent than my rantings. The bit about the crucifix pissed me off too. On a slightly lighter note did you know that according to the last census the fourth largest religion in this country is :-

Yes you guessed it,


So may the force be with us all.!!!
