Calls to Ban Ham, Sausage and Alcohol at Work

Ah, for for the love of Political Correctness!

New guidelines proposed by interfaith group CoExist House say that employers should consider worker’s religions before allowing ham sandwiches placed in the fridge alongside other products.
The group also suggests that alcohol should not be served at corporate events in case it upsets members of certain faiths.

Andy Dinham, professor of faith and public policy at Goldsmiths, University of London, is writing up the guidelines that will be put forward to employers this week.

Defending the controversial report, he told The Sunday Times: “It would be good etiquette to avoid heating up foods that might be prohibited for people of other faiths.

“The microwaves example is a good one.

“We also say, ‘Don’t put kosher or halal and other… special foods next to another [food] or, God forbid, on the same plate.”

He also said that religious people should be entitled to wear religious clothing and symbols as required.

He added: “We have lost the ability to talk about religious belief because of a century of secular assumptions, and most religious belief is either highly visible and we don’t recognize it, or it’s invisible and we miss it entirely.”

Shall we cut the political correctness and get to the point — Let’s try this from the OTHER SIDE of religious tolerance. How about the OTHER religions who are offended by anything and everything that is not of their own faith learn some tolerance for customs that have been in place for centuries for the other cultures and faiths THEY are imposing on! Learn to live with Ham sandwiches and a bottle of beer in the fridge and stop demanding everyone else bow to your particular peccadilloes of preference. Deal with it!

As for clothing, go right ahead and wear your exotic robes and medallions and headdresses. Don’t expect the business world to respond positively…and it is not due to bias or racism. It is due to your own selfishness, immaturity, cultural intolerance and business ignorance. There are standards in the business world and even in the lunch room of those businesses. If you want to be in that world, learn to conform and deal with it. Don’t expect the world to bow to you.

The Co-Exist people need to learn to do just that!
