Porcelain pigs offend Muslims

LEICESTER -- Police here in central England seized a collection of porcelain pigs from a house's window sill after Muslims complained that they were offensive.
"I just couldn't believe it, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry," Mrs Nancy Bennett, the owner of the 17 miniature pigs, told the Sun tabloid newspaper.
The porcelain figures were held at the local police station, while Mrs Bennett was threatened with prosecution if she replaces the collection. Her house is located in the same street as the city's main mosque, meaning that Muslim worshippers often passed by her front window where the pig figurines were on display. "Muslims find pigs highly offensive," explained police officer David Griffiths. "That is why the complaints were made".

The British no longer have any rights. They surrendered them unto that pisslamic god when they allowed for Shari'a.

She should replace the pigs with dogs and puppys. Of course they are also unclean, but maybe it will make a point, even in England.
We hope.

Yet they don't find beheadings, suicide bombers, and mass murders offensive.
Great religion!
And the British have NO balls left. At ALL. Churchill must be spinning in his grave like a jet turbine...

Yeah, I know it was in 1998. But we all know that the situation hasn't got any better, right?
Matter of fact, it's said that England will be the European Unions' first muslim country. I always figured it would be France.
