Oxford University Press has forbidden its authors to mention bacon or any other pork products in their writings so as to not offend Muslim sensibilities. That’s right, kiss ‘The Three Little Pigs’ and ‘Cooking with Pork’ goodbye if you want one of your books to ever be published by the world’s largest university press.
American Prosperity It wasn’t long ago when it was reported KFC had to remove alcohol cleansing moist towelettes from their stores because it was against the traditions of Islam to consume alcohol. The KFC in question was in the UK, and it’s out of that same country where another demonstrably idiotic policy is taking effect.
According to the International Business Times, writers can’t mention pigs, or “anything else which could be perceived as pork.” So that means the Oxford University Press won’t be able to talk about bacon, pork loins, pork tenderloins, pork chops, pork belly, ham, or anything else that comes from pigs.
The reason they have come to this decision is because they want their books to be available to the largest general audience as possible. So that means if they need to get rid of the mention of pork, then so be it.
A representative from the Press said: Many of the educational materials we publish in the U.K. are sold in more than 150 countries, and as such they need to consider a range of cultural differences and sensitivities… Our editorial guidelines are intended to help ensure that the resources that we produce can be disseminated to the widest possible audience.
It’s absolute madness, is what it is. Stories about the the over-the-top ways establishment organizations are acquiescing to Muslim demands show how the Islamists are getting exactly what they want.
At a time where Muslims are gaining more and more power across the world, it’s worrisome how governments as well as large institutions are folding at the least bit of pressure. You can be sure if this is allowed to continue then it’s not going to be a far distant future where Muslims become a protected religion.
We’ve already seen how Obama refuses to condemn Muslims for their violence. What’s next? Will Obama make it a “hate crime” to talk about bacon in front of Muslims?
