hands off my Schweinefleisch!

Plans to no longer serve children pork or gelatin-containing products like gummy bears at two day care centers in the eastern German city of Leipzig prompted a wave of criticism online and made headlines across the country on Tuesday.

The mass-circulation Bild newspaper first reported about the day care centers' proposal, saying the decision to make the changes came from consideration for two Muslim children.

"Out of respect for a changing world, only pork-free meals and snacks will be ordered and served starting from July 15," read a letter sent to parents, according to Bild.

Responses to the plans grew so heated that Leipzig police decided to park patrol cars outside both of the day care centers to protect against "possible dangers," a spokesman told news agency dpa.

Jewish people don't eat pork and you never heard anything about banning pork before.
Why are they catering to Muslims all of a sudden ?

Not sure what the problem is. They're not ordering food or snacks with pork products in them in an area where many children don't eat either.

My workplace doesn't offer pork products at our cafes, restaurant, or snack bars either because of the large Jewish population. *shrug*

You're not sure what the problem is? They are doing this to satisfy the Muslim people who are settling in Germany. Pork is a part of German cuisine and culture, so the problem is that authorities should not put the wants and needs of the population, as well as centuries of tradition aside to satisfy newcomers to their country.

If you really do not understand the issue here, then I'm sorry you don't possess the critical thinking skills to understand. But, I suspect you know full well, but prefer to pretend in the name of social justice.

"for 2 children"

Special treatment of said kids should simply be not giving it to them.

Read the article.

Two Muslim children at day care.

How many children are at that day care?

Fair question. Maybe because Jewish people won't firebomb the center or go on a crazed knife attack because of non Jewish/Kosher food being available? Good grief this is Germany. Something about pork being rather traditional? So the Muslim kids just don't eat any pork stuff. Why remove it completely?


In ancient times there were reasons for the forbidding of eating things like pork because of diseases undercooked and poorly stored/prepared meats from such animals carried. We know what causes that now. It's not in reality a "divine" proclamation so much as a health thing. Same with shellfish.


Sorry folks you're not in the ME anymore. Deal with it. I'ts not the country you immigrated to's responsibility to adhere to YOUR supposedly religious tenets.

I can see the logic behind the banning of pork products if that day care is predominantly Muslims, but to accommodate for two Muslim children ?

Exactly. Jewish people aren't going to be blowing up the building. All religions are now equal as the SJWs claim. As Sam Harris explains, people can produce a musical like 'The Book of Mormon' because they know that Mormons aren't going to put out a fatwa on you for doing so.
