PC Brigade bans Christmas Party

#1
I'm working at the factory in Blandford, and have just been briefed that we need to organise a Christmas Party for the group. However we're not allowed to call it a Christmas Party in case we offend the Queen's Gurkha Signallers, the Muslims and any other non-Christian. So far we've come up with a name for it. The Annual December 25th Birthday Celebration for a Guy called Jesus. Any thoughts or better ideas for a name?

I suspect that the majority of Muslims, Hindus, Taoists, Zoroastrians or whatever you're having yourself are not the slightest bit offended by Christmas.

It's an excuse by certain people (usually not members of religious minorities themselves) with a certain political agenda to further their ends by attacking another element of Western culture.

Can we ask the muslims not to call Ramadan Ramadan anymore as it offends me? Why not rename that to 'excuse to fecking skive'?

I have never seen a Gurkha, random flavour of muslim or any other religious, agnostic or atheist soldier have an issue with a Christmas party.

Or was someone planning to force them to take a holy communion instead of getting leathered :?

Even as a Zoroastrian I never once returned a crimbo pressy or refused to go out on the lash to celebrate......something to do in between the 6 gahanbars...

This is a WAH............right?! It's must be copied directly from the front page of the Daily Mail (Daily Hate)!? If it isn't name and shame the individual who made this decision so we can question their thinking on mass. People who make these decisions only fuel the fires of intolerance, inflame underlying tensions and embarrass those they naively try to protect.

And may I say that is a far more reasoned response that I was going to post because the bast4rds nearly got me going too!

Tell whatever clown came up with that to get real.

I'm the unit EO Officer and I see NO problem whatsoever with having a Christmas party.

Ask them to find ONE document from MOD that bans Christmas as an excuse for a party.

How’s about a Christian, Hindu, Rastafarianism, Islamic, Sikh, Tenrikyo, Muslim, Atheist, Scientology (Christmas for short) party in December. :santa: :rendeer:

This is absolutely ridiculous. I would be interested to know who came up with this PC nonsense.

Over the years, I have met with people of many faiths. None of them have been offended by Christian customs. On the contrary, they have welcomed and respected our religious festivals.

In my experience, militant secular humanists use 'offence to others' as an excuse to clamp down on religion generally.

We should not be bowed. This is Britain. It is, by tradition, a Christian country. Her Majesty is Governor of the Church of England. Let us stand firm.
