-Germany: Pork Banned from Schools and Government Canteens in Deference to Muslim Refugees?

by Dr. D ~ March 7th, 2016

Bratwurst and beer

The German government has apparently banned pork including popular traditional German sausages like bratwurst from their schools and government office canteens. The move is supposedly in deference to the thousands of Muslim refugees recently allowed into the country. As you can imagine, this has caused quite a controversy. Here’s the story from the Daily Mail:

The local arm of the CDU, the party of German Chancellor Angela Merkel, claimed pork was being banned for ‘religious reasons’ across the north German state.

‘The protection of minorities – including for religious reasons – must not mean that the majority is overruled in their free decision by ill-conceived consideration,’ said CDU’s Daniel Günther.

‘The consumption of pork belongs to our culture,’ Günther added, according to Deutsche Welle.

‘No one should be obliged to do so, but we also don’t want the majority having to refrain from pork.’

Response: I wonder what they are going to do about Oktoberfest this year. After all the traditional beer and sausage will be quite ‘offensive’ to the new Muslim residents.

We agree with Daniel Gunther, non-pork food options should be offered but the majority should not be forced to give up their favorite traditional pork sausage for lunch. The new Muslim residents must learn not to be offended by their new culture nor demand that the majority, that had mercy on them and took them in, be forced to give up their traditional favorite bratwurst and beer. Unfortunately Muslims are not known for their tolerance of other cultures, traditions, and religions.

In America, schools have only recently been encouraged to give up pork. Quietly the change has taken place since the beginning of the Obama administration supposedly for ‘health’ reasons. 

Most Muslims have assimilated here far better than they have in Europe. Though a few have demanded to be excused from handling or selling pork or alcohol products on their jobs in markets or stores like Costco or Wal-Mart. Also, some Muslim taxi cab drivers have refuged to take passengers that were obviously carrying alcohol or disabled folks with service dogs. The problems seem to arise in areas where there are large Muslim minorities.              *Top

  1. -Germany: Women Encouraged to Wear Hijabs in The Name of ‘Tolerance’ | ANSWERS For The Faith

    […] Response: This is just crazy. It’s actually submission rather than tolerance. What will Germany be like in 20 or 30 years with policies like this? With this type of ‘tolerance,’  beer and bratwurst will soon be banned from Oktoberfest celebrations. After all, the public consumption of alcohol and German pork sausages is ‘in your face’ offensive to Muslims and therefore not very ‘tolerant’ at all. The German officials have already accommodated the refugees by banning pork from schools and government canteens. […]
