Three Little Pigs 'too offensive'? WTF?

Now we have to start rewriting our childrens' traditional fairy tales so as not to offend a bunch of people and their own fairy tale beliefs? This is just totally ridiculous. When are rational people just going to jump in here and speak up and say ENOUGH ALREADY!

As bernarda says at GifS "The wimp Brits cave again to multiculturalism." Let's hope we here in the USA don't start doing the same. I think if they start trying to push this stuff here many people would be in favor of inviting them to one big national Pig Roast. LOL!

LINK: A story based on the Three Little Pigs fairy tale has been turned down by a government agency's awards panel as the subject matter could offend Muslims.

Here are more things that "offend" muslims.

Union Jack

Britain's Union Jack offends Muslim because it is comprised of the heraldic crosses of three Christian Saints: St. George - patron saint of England since 1270, St. Andrew - patron saint of Scotland and St. Patrick, patron saint of Ireland.

British banks are banning piggy banks because they may offend some Muslims. Halifax and NatWest banks have led the move to scrap the time-honoured symbol of saving from being given to children or used in their advertising, the Daily Express/Daily Star group reports here.

Winnie The Pooh

Politicians in British West Midlands banned the display of toy pigs and other pig-related items in municipal offices as a result of a single complaint from a Muslim. Among the banned items were piggy banks, novelty pig calendars and a tissue box featuring Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

Porcelain Salt & Pepper

Police in central England seized a collection of porcelain pigs from a house's window sill after Muslims complained that they were offensive.

BLT Sandwocj

In Orlando, Florida, a Christian employee of a business owned by a Muslim was fired for eating a bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich.

Three Little Pigs

Some British schools have also removed or restricted the following 'anti-Muslim' children's books...
The Three Little Pigs, Charlottes Web, Babe:The Sheep-pig, Cars and Trucks and Things That Go, Olivia Saves the Circus, Animal Farm."

That's just nuts! I sure hope things don't go too far!

Hi tina, I too hope they don't get that far here, and if they try I hope we will have strong enough leaders to say screw you!

Religion makes people behave in such irrational ways.

I think most of it has been blown way out of proportion by the tabloid media. It's another version of the 'War on Christmas' nonsense.

Stardust said...

I don't know about that cyberkitten. In our area the muslim schools are fighting real hard to get men and boys banned from girl's sporting events where their daughters' schools play against public and other parochial schools.

I write to several people in the UK who used to say "oh, I think the media is just blowing this out of proportion" and now they are upset because the muslims and the multicultural die-hards are pushing for some parts of sharia law into the government. It's how it always happens in history...people blow off the little things and next thing you know we find ourselves totally controlled by these the Xian evangelicals have more and more influence and say in the US.
