Why cant Christians ban anything muslim-related as offensive? They just want us all dead, no big deal, right?

Because that's politically incorrect/bigoted/phobic/hateful/narrow-minded/anything Christian.

In short, you'd be flamed off the net and probably cut from all social circles if you try to crusade for anything related to Christianity.

Makes sense to me.

1 billion Muslims in the world are now aware that Oxford Press takes their religion seriously.

You can't buy this kind of exposure.



LOL....the Jews have been anti-pig for a long time but Oxford.....well you get the point.

Besides Ox? Offensive to Ox's? Name a university after a place where Ox cross the river? Thats real deep man. Maybe the Saudis donated a bunch of money to them.

Let's be clear.

This banning the word "pig" stupidity has nothing to do with Muslims or Jews.

It's the idiotic politically correct white liberals at Oxford Press that made this decision. I will go out on the proverbial limb and bet that it wasn't a Jew or a Muslim that decided this.

It was probably money. As most things are.

With a growing population of Muslims. There is probably a very lucrative market for appropriate books for Muslim children.

I will go out on a limb and say they just tossed the Jews in there as not to appear to phony and transparently like a bunch of rear end kissing Islamophiles.

Well either way my Alien Agenda will overthrow these huligans.

I got big plans for the world. But for now, i am seeing how things pan without intervention.

The moment cyborgs controlled by A.I come to the scene, Hide and duck for cover. Because there is going to be a purifying of the land.

I guess it won't be me doing it but rather i am just passing on a message here.

Life is so lucid lol. More lucid than dreams sometimes. Their gunna need Allah to stop my Jinn from conquering.
And if you think im crazy that's fine
This is why i love ATS. So many unique people are able to provide quite the good distraction. I'd say the world has it's hand tied in internal affairs and drama.

I think this song is relevent. Just read the lyrics.

I came to this thread thinking there would be a joke and a punch line. Sadly, this is a true story. There is madness afoot in the world right now.

6 billion other people are now aware Oxford Press is a joke. Definitely can't buy that exposure, nor would you want to.

And the smart man realizes that, and keeps the word pig out of books for that audience. The dumb man removes the word from their entire dictionary and has to pretend the animal no longer exists.

Imagine writing a cook book for NON MUSLIMS/JEWS and removing all reference to any pig product?

Initial report I saw of this said the words were being removed so as not to offend Muslims AND Jews.

Did they get a phone call demanding the Jewish reference be removed, to give the impression this was another Muslim only issue I wonder?

said it before, will say it again, muslims were not invited to european countries out of kindness. they were invited to forward an agenda of the globalists, in which religion in general, is the target. if they can't get the muslims and other beliefs to be offensive enough, they will make it appear that they are. europe is a big fat trap. if you're muslim, christian or jew, you need to get out of there.

If there is a swine flu outbreak on campus, I wonder how they report it? I guess the re education sensitivity classes are paying off.
