Three Little Pigs 'too offensive'
A story based on the Three Little Pigs has been turned down from a government agency's annual awards because the subject matter could offend Muslims.

The digital book, re-telling the classic fairy tale, was rejected by judges who warned that "the use of pigs raises cultural issues".

Becta, the government's educational technology agency, is a leading partner in the annual schools award.

The judges also attacked Three Little Cowboy Builders for offending builders. ...

How much more politically correctness will we accept in Europe? Will we ban "The cow jumps over the moon" for it being offensive toHindus in India?

"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?" "

The key risk of loss is fire damage not wind damage:-

"According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is. If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire."

Presumably this too is offensive to unwise builders of which we seem to have a few.

This is nonsense! It seems like the Islamization of Great Britain, is continuing, Support Denmark: Why the Forbidden Cartoons Matter. Go ahead, and offend them, they are going to try to kill you anyway, Islamist Debate: Are Muslim U.K. Visa Holders and Muslim U.K. Citizens Permitted to Carry Out Attacks in Great Britain?. The social leaders in many Western countries seem to have forgotten, the Inadequacy of Islam.

There's nothing new about CD-ROM books, but perhaps British educrats are a bit slow here.

Certainly the story would offend Islamic canines. But I do allow that it, like most fairy tales, deserves a Very Silly warning.
