The Shaking-My-Head, Not-a-Christmas-Post, Post

I understand that it's not past Thanksgiving yet, but this isn't really a Christmas post.  It's an "I can't believe the lengths some PC people will go to to pander to the religion of peace" post.  Are you ready for this?

The British Red Cross has banned Christmas from its fund-raising shops.  All 430 of them.  Because any celebration of the Christian holy day could offend Muslims.  For real.

This PC nonsense is so dumbfounding that it sucks all the oxygen out of the room.

I mean, seriously, their name is the Red CROSS!  You know, like the cross where Christ was crucified.

(The organization's symbol is a red cross on a white field, the inverse of the Swiss flag, where the International Red Cross was formed and is headquartered.  The Swiss flag's cross has its roots buried deeply in Christianity.  Shoot -- the crescent is used in arabic countries' flags and symbols, not to mention for the Red Crescent, and in arabic countries pretty much everything carries some sort of religious connotation.)

So, the fund-raising stores can't display Christmas trees or creches, but they can certainly sell Christmas cards to make a profit.  I wonder if they have to store the Christmas cards behind the counter like porn magazines.  Sheesh, give me a break.  I guess soon we need to be prepared for this:

Sorry. This whole thing has Moogie feeling rather peckish.


  1. I know that feeling and I agree with you.

  2. Moogie, I kinda like that Lord Ahmad cat (or whatever his name is).

    Lookit, I'm having a helluva time posting comments on The Globber, so this may not even get to you...

    But, I'm not really surprised at the redcross. They have people in harms way all over the theater of operations. I'm pretty sure some knuckle-biter at the RC wet his pants when some e-mail came from some raghead threatening to blow up their trucks and junk if they didn't take down nativity scenes...or something.

    I'm not defending him. I'm just saying that he's got a job to do, and doesn't like funerals of co-workers. Heck...I could be completely wrong.

    I usually am.

    Love, Andy

  3. If toleration of other's religion is the name of the game, why can't others be tolerant of Christianity.

  4. Thank you, Lou. That, indeed, is the question. Or at the very least, A question.

  5. Unfortunately I've come to expect such reports as being the norm coming out of the UK. They've been completely taken hostage by socialism and PC'ism.

    Now if that happened here in the US (at least, so far) the outrage and bad press, not to mention the public boycott on all funding, would cause the powere-that-be to rethink their positions. Quickly.

  6. This whole thing has Moogie feeling rather peckish.

    Well... me, too. Except I'm about six ticks to the right of peckish.

  7. You may have a point, Andy. Still . . . .

    That would be my hope, DDave.

    six ticks to the right -- Love it, Buck!
