Beginning of the End

This thru LGF: Muslims win toy pigs ban
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: “It’s a tolerance of people’s beliefs.”
You may not have been aware of this, but I am barred from eating Muslims. I consider them unclean.
Muslims offend me. They really do. All it takes is a religion which is offended by the sight of Muslims, the uncleanliness of Muslims, the sound of Muslim prayer, to enable their getting banned from public life.

Ideas, anyone? For a new religion?
