Swine is off the menu

BBC News | Three Little Pigs ‘too offensive’

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

More craziness from people who clearly have their heads up their arses. Who cares if it offends Muslims? They make up less than 3% of the population, more people would probably be offended by a crappy re-imagining of the classic fairy tale.

Another silly example of the pandering to a small minority that, in all likelihood, isn’t offended anyway. Pigs exist, no Muslim believes that they should be removed from existence, that they are some mistake on God’s part that mankind has been tasked with rectifying.

“There’s an issue about the eating of pork, which is forbidden, but there is no prohibition about reading stories about pigs.”
Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra, of the Muslim Council of Britain

The more that people worry about upsetting minorities and pussy footing around them, the more foolish and ignorant they look and the more ill feeling is bred.

This had to be the king of excuses though, they offered this as some kind of weird justification for being scared to upset Muslims.

The judges criticised the stereotyping in the story of the unfortunate pigs: “Is it true that all builders are cowboys, builders get their work blown down, and builders are like pigs?”

What? It’s a story, they may as well have asked if all wolves lie, eat grandmas and can talk. It isn’t real life, even a child knows that. If there is some new rule that anything published in schools has to be 100% accurate and truthful the Government is fucked, everything they say and do is misleading and deceptive and consisting of half truths and feints.
