Pre-emptive dhimmitude! “Paintings with Pigs Removed from Hospitals,” from NISNews, July 23 (thanks to all who sent this in):
LEERDAM, 23/07/10 – Three paintings depicting pigs have been pre-emptively removed from a hospital in Leerdam because they might offend Muslims.
One patient, not actually himself a Muslim, made a complaint about the paintings because he wanted to avoid Muslims having confrontations with the pigs. The leadership of the healthcare institution, the Linge Polyclinic, thereupon decided to remove the paintings immediately, Algemeen Dagblad newspaper reports….
The Linge Polyclinic has stated that the pictures were removed because “all visitors must feel comfortable in the institution”.
