    Toy Pig Removed From UK Farm Playsets to Avoid Religious Controversy

    "Where Else But That Bastion Of PC, the UK !"


    A UK toy shop has become the target of mothers‘ ridicule after it removed a toy pig from a children’s farm set in an attempt to kowtow to religious preferences. (h/t Weasel Zippers)

    Can you spot the difference in these before/after images? Hint: "Oink."

    snip

    The animal was missing from the Early Learning Centre’s (ELC) HappyLand Goosefeather Farm when a mother bought it as a gift for her daughter’s first birthday.

    The set did contain a cow, sheep, chicken, horse and dog, but the pig sty was empty – even though there was a button that made an “oink” noise.

    What? No accommodation for Hindus who might find a farm cow offensive?

    When the mother named only as Caroline complained, she was told in an email the pig had been removed in case it upset Muslim or Jewish parents.

    Eating pork is banned in both religions because pigs are considered unclean.

    Thankfully, the company has come to its senses and promised to “reinstate the pig” after parents complained. One parent even condemned the whole episode as “political correctness gone loopy.”

    But some defended the toy store’s move even suggested the company should have sold two separate versions of the toy, one with a pig and one without.

    Or a hypersensitive Muslim parent could have simply removed the pig before giving it to the child.

    He knows it but just doesn't want to talk about it, I couldn't imagine being conservative in a European country surrounded by socialists, we think we have it bad!

    That would mean having to touch it. Apparently, even a plastic representation of a pig is unclean and offensive to Allah.

    Also, I like how they don't want to offend Jews, either. Trust me, we don't care what Goyim kids play with, as long as it isn't the Junior Dr. Mengele Vivisection Kit (TM).

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Yeah, anybody that has ever awakened late at night and walked to the bathroom while raising a new puppy can tell you that dogs are just as unclean!:eek:
