The council apologized and reinstated Tina Gayle and her Knights Templar mugs (how can I get one?), but that these mugs were controversial at all is an indication of how much the British people have already submitted to Sharia norms forbidding criticism of Islam.
“The person who complained wasn’t offended himself, but thought Muslims might be.”
That person is a slave seeking slavery. It is good that this time sanity won out, but present downward trends continue.
“Council apologises for banning woman for selling Knight Templar mugs,” Sky News, October 14, 2017:
A market stall holder who has been banned for selling Knights Templar crusader mugs which some feared might offend Muslims may get a reprieve.
Vintage book seller Tina Gayle got an apology from the council after she had been originally told she had to leave her pitch of three years in Loughborough Vintage Market, Leicestershire….
The mugs at the centre of the row feature a medieval knight and the Christian chivalric order’s Latin motto, which translates as: “Not to us Lord, not to us, but to your name give the glory”.
The mugs brought one complaint….
She was handed a letter on 6 October stating she was in breach of Charnwood Council’s trading terms and conditions and had to leave her pitch at the market.
The council now says it had “got this one wrong”, and has apologised for the way it handled the matter….
Ms Gayle said she had been told the council “had a complaint that the mugs might be offensive to Muslims”.
She added: “The person who complained wasn’t offended himself, but thought Muslims might be.
“I’ve never had a Muslim come into my stall and say they were offended by the mugs.”
