Oxford University Press bans use of pig, sausage or pork-related words to avoid offending Muslims
[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]

The Oxford University Press has warned its writers not to mention pigs, sausages or pork-related words in children's books, in an apparent bid to avoid offending Jews and Muslims.

The existence of the publisher's guidelines emerged after a television discussion on free speech in the wake of the Paris attacks.

Speaking on Radio 4's Today programme, presenter Jim Naughtie said: "I've got a letter here that was sent out by OUP to an author doing something for young people.

"Among the things prohibited in the text that was commissioned by OUP was the following: Pigs plus sausages, or anything else which could be perceived as pork.

"Now, if a respectable publisher, tied to an academic institution, is saying you've got to write a book in which you cannot mention pigs because some people might be offended, itís just ludicrous. It is just a joke...50% rule

Christians, Hindus, and Americans don't burn your building down and murder your writers for being offended. Oxford is a bunch of cowards that have not the slightest respect for their own writers' freedom of expression.

Muslims are not offended by three little pigs or jimmy dean,.ffs. you are being harassed by your own society to turn you against Muslims.

And why turn people against Muslims? Like the ones who threw down Mubarak? They don't want you associating with such bad company. You might learn something.

If the bacon drama were ever to die down, Muslims might do something useful in the struggle of mankind against the lizard illuminati, or the power elite.

In the DESERT, where the taboo comes from, pigs are cost inefficient. Sheep and goats produce wool and milk while they live. Cows produce milk. Camels produce labor and trransportatrion.

These halal animals are also vegetarian.

Pigs/boars are dangerous to humans. Hogs have eaten people. They produce nothing but meat and leather. A desert people in a delicate ecosystem can't afford such luxury as livestock that is only productive after slaughter and poses a danger to people and animals while it lives

The people who live downwind from a pig farm also wish you would eat halal.

When more and more people start being very open in expressing their disgust towards liberalism and dumb liberals. People of the left are the ones who have created all this crap. But they're never taken to task for it.

Some of that is due to libtards being among our own families, among friends, neighbors, colleagues, co-workers. But that should no longer shield anyone from being politically correct and idiotically liberal.

Regrettably, we have no shortage of dumb-ass liberals on this side of the Atlantic. Look at the leftwing idiot we elected for the presidency in 2008 and 2012.

i recently watched a movie called Pig Hunt. the star of the show was Hogzilla. an early scene had Charlie Musselwhite (blues harp man) clerking in a country store, so i kept watching. maybe muslims would like it since Hogzilla was the bad guy.
