“Oxford University Press bans sausages and pigs from children’s books in effort 'to avoid offence'” [this part’s a bit, shall we say, disingenuous: “Ban is apparently aimed at avoiding offence among Jews and Muslims” (emphasis mine – P). Show of hands: how many of you think the Oxford University Press is equally afraid of offending Jews and Muslims?]
And I’ve found yet another reason to despise Duke University:
In a new initiative to promote religious pluralism Duke University will broadcast the Muslim call to prayer every Friday on campus. The call to prayer—also known as ‘adhan’—will be chanted by the Duke Muslim Student Association.Book-burning and kabob roast to follow.
The prayer itself is set to start this Friday at 1:00 p.m. and will be broadcast and amplified from the Chapel bell tower on campus.
