    Too far?

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/7204635.stm

    What do you think, I think this is way too far, you can't just pretend the things don't exist!

    And keep it clean or i presume it'll get locked if people start going "if they ****ed off we wouldnt have this problem" etc.

    100% to far and I only read the first 2 lines. Its not equal for all religions so why should we change everything about the British history and culture for one religion.

    Its not equal or balanced so there for unfair and ridiculous. All it will do is fuel the fire for the day the people turn on the councils and governments and want there country back.

    unfortunately that there is a prime example of the fear factor that the racial discrimination act and the european bill of human rights have combined to produce in this country.

    I think the government needs to adopt a "when in rome" attitude and to stop all this PC nonsense. fair enough if something is deliberately produced with the intention of offending someone, but this is a tad extreme. If the organisers of that award scheme ran the country then farmers would be forced to keep their pigs indoors

    Jews don't eat pork either, but no reference was made to offending them, so that's a very one sided argument, and that in itself make Becta two faced, and discriminatory

    It really is a load of bollocks spending all this time, money and effort looking for things that just might just oh so possibly offend someone

    I don't know how many muslims are offended by a f**king pig (some of them in this country can't even speak English) but this crock of shit offends me!!!

    If I were to move to India, they wouldn't build a church so I could practice my religion, and censor the whole country for fear of offending the 'white man'.

    I am in no way a racist, but this country is traditionally a christian nation, why do we do so much to offend people whose roots don't even lie in Britain??

    Gaz that is not strickly true as there are 4+ generations (it may be more - just guessing) of muslims in this country now and they have every right to live here. Also as muslims this does go against there faith even if they moved here this year or there great grand parents and I can see the argument they are putting forward.

    however I do agree that kids should have the right to choose and be taught both sides, with the PC world we live in it means that its unbalanced and as such they are missing vital lessons in life.

    I'm not saying they have no right mate, I just think that certain people go out of their way to find things the 'MAY' offend someone. As said, Jewish people don't eat pork, neither do vegitarians, but the emphasis was put onto muslims, when I'm sure their not really that bothered about it tbh.
