Words ‘Pig’ and ‘Pork’ Banned By Oxford University Press In Children’s Books Because It Offends Muslims

It seems clear that in our quest to not offend anyone, society is becoming more and more absurd. Now, according to a major book publisher, we cannot reference pork or pigs because of the delicate sensibilities of Muslims.

Oxford University Press has banned children’s book authors from using the words pig, pork because Muslims were offended.

Publishers HAVE to submit to SHARIA LAW by banning the word ‘pork’ and similar.

“I’ve got a letter here that was sent out by OUP to an author doing something for young people,” said TV host Jim Naughtie, whose wife Eleanor Updale is working with Oxford on an educational book series. “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, it’s just ludicrous,” he added. “It is just a joke.”

Even Muslim Labour MP Khalid Mahmood agreed that this was going too far.

“I absolutely agree,” he conceded. “That’s absolute utter nonsense. And when people go too far, that brings the whole discussion into disrepute.”

Oxford Press, however, defended their politically correct move in a statement:

“Many of the educational materials we publish in the UK 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.”

Have things gone too far?

Our world is filled with dedicated Muslims who believe it is their duty to God to kill non-Muslims and we are worrying about this PC nonsense?

In case anyone is wondering, it is this kind of garbage that fuels the outrage that makes Donald Trump appear likable.
