UK Church School Renames Three Little Pigs

School Changes Name of Play to 'Three Little Puppies' to Avoid Offending Muslims


Little Red Riding Hood ... Hansel and Gretel ... the Three Little Puppies?

Gill Goodswen, head teacher of Stile Common Junior School, defending the move.

She said: "We have to be sensitive if we want to be multi-cultural. It was felt it would be more responsible not to use the three little pigs.

"We feared that some Muslim children wouldn't sing along to the words about pigs,' she said.

"We didn't want to take that risk. If changing a few words avoids offence then we will do so."

The story of the Three Little Pigs' battle with the Big Bad Wolf has delighted children since it was written more than 150 years ago.

But the tale highlighting the merits of hardwork and practicality has become the latest to fall victim to political correctness.

A junior school production of the children's story has been renamed the Three Little Puppies for fear of offending Muslims.

Organisers of a children's music festival have altered the popular characters and lyrics because of the multi-cultural nature of the youngsters involved and their parents in the audience.

Children from Honley Church of England Junior School in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, were due to perform in a reworking of the popular tale which features the three little pigs.

The youngsters - aged from seven to 11 - were due to perform at Huddersfield Town Hall in June with 250 children from 63 schools singing along.

But organisers of the Kirklees Primary Music Festival decided to change the script to be 'sensitive' to Muslims at a recent committee meeting.

Wild Thing's comment........

This is so absurd ! "Three Little Puppies"? Earth to school, Muslims consider puppies unclean. Why don't the Brits just hand their country over to the towelheads and get it over with? This slow, drip, drop, drip destruction of British, Anglo-Saxon culture is too painful to witness.

This PC crap is for the birds!
Larry the Cable Guy is right--it's silly and stupid.
These are children's stories for crying out loud!
They're meant to have a meaning to teach small children.
The 3 Little Pigs message is build your house strong and on firm, solid ground, so it withstands the tests of time (also implying to the family)--even the Muslims should appreciate that.
If they want to call it something else in their homes, let them, but not in the schools or out in public.

This is just one of many PC surrenders to islam taking place in England. England seems at times to be even more quick to give in than France.

Piss off a Muslim! Wear pig jewelry!

Radical Islam is winning the victory in England. The perceived notion that The Three Little Pigs will offend Muslim children is a strong indication that the English People are caving in to radical Islam.

It's hard to believe that the nation that at one time stood alone against Hitlers Juggernaut is surrendering so easily. My fear is that if Democrats gain full control of Washington, the US won't be far behind them.

Sir Winston Churchil is rolling over in his grave for the Muslims have invaded and seized the former
Great Britain! The Koran did what Mein Kampf couldn't do in the Battle of Britain, and no RAF Spitfires can rescue the Bulldogs now. Soon they'll be celebrating Ramadan nationally, the Queen will convert to the dynamite religion, and all alcoholic Ales and spirits will be banned for offending Muhamad! No more Charles Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' either Brits for Jesus is a no no, eh? "The only thing we have to fear is FEAR itself? WE SURRENDER!" Bob, the American citizens have more...FIREPOWER... in our 31 Red States of America than the U.S. Armed Forces do. Don't worry Bob, we'll take care of ourselves, our homes and backyards, and do what ever is necessary to LOCK 'N LOAD on evil - period. GOD bless our 2nd Amendment Bob. Happy St. Patrick's Day. - The Magnum Forces 2007

Good,Bad and middle of the road Muslums can go
piss up a rope for all I care.Most of all I would
love it if they just got the F**K out of here
and never came back...

Before you go any further you should know that the Daily Mail is
a notorious rag which whips up non-stories to appeal to right
wing readers in Middle England (your equivalent of Texas).
We're not being swamped by muslims, they're welcome here, it's just
certain people trying to justify an illegal, immoral and pointless war in
which they happen to have vested financial interests.
Spankingly rich people, coincidentally, like Viscount Rothermere, the
owner of the Daily Mail. Don't take my word for it, Google him.

Conditioning the masses for Sharia Law is all this PC crap is. In a target rich environment I wonder how many of my fellow veterans are tenderly and lovingly greasing all their ammo with the very best lard. Punkin's on a stick wrapped in a dirty diaper. Range central, permission to fire???

Darth, hahahaha yes they should. God help us all if this kind of thing spreads to the USA. OH wait it already has in some ways. The cab drivers should have been fired when they would not do their jobs because of their muslim cult beliefs. IMO anyway.

Lynn, a friend of ours gave my husband Larry the Cable guys cd for Christmas. It was good and funny too.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:38 PM

Tom, yes, it is as though they are rushing into the arms of Islam. sick sick sick

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:41 PM

Always On Watch, hahahaaha now there is a thought.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:42 PM

Bob very true, we are not that far behind this kind of thinking at all. Very scary.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:43 PM

Darth, yes, Sir Winston Churchil is spinning over and over about all of this. I can just imagine it. We sure live in a different world now and not for the better. Very alarming.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:45 PM

Tincan Sailor, I would love to kick them all out if we could. I don't want us to become like Eurpoe has been to them. There is no turning back.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:46 PM

Neil, it does not matter if you think it is a rag publication or not. The story is true so that is what is being discussed here.

How sad that you welcome the Muslims there and so happy about it. One day your country will wail in grief of their decisions just as ours will do as well.

Posted by: Wild Thing at March 16, 2007 11:48 PM

Jack, I say yesssss permission to fire you bet.
