Another case of ludicrous cultural sensitivity for the sake of ensuring that everybody – no matter their religion or cultural background – is served food prepared under the most unreliable concept of supervision (via Jihad Watch):
A dinner lady has been sacked for accidentally serving non-halal meat to Muslim students at a multi-faith school.
The incident outraged parents at the ‘halal-only’ Moseley School in Birmingham, and they have forced the headmaster to apologise for ‘insulting’ their faith.
The member of staff has been dismissed after the ‘unintentional error’ on December 12 last year recently came to light.
All 1,400 students at Moseley school are served halal meat, regardless of their religion.
It has not been specified what type of meat was served, but the person responsible for serving the food was dismissed following a disciplinary hearing last Monday.
Well God forbid a Muslim be offended! I suppose mistakes are unforgivable, especially if you offend the Religion of Peace
For those of you not sure what halal means here it is
In Arabic, the word halal means permitted or lawful. Halal foods are foods that are allowed under Islamic dietary guidelines. According to these guidelines gathered from the Qu’ran, Muslim followers cannot consume the following:
pork or pork by products
animals that were dead prior to slaughtering
animals not slaughtered properly or not slaughtered in the name of Allah
blood and blood by products
birds of prey
land animals without external ears
People can eat what they want, but to force your dietary habits onto a culture that you are a minority in is wrong. If it that big a deal, pack your own lunch. In other words grow up and stop expecting the world to change to protect your feelings! Maybe Islam needs a new rule, like STOP WHINING!
