← British Airways takes beef off the menu to avoid offending Hindus

This is ridiculous. If your doctrine says 'Don't do X', that does not give you a right to make everyone around you conform to not doing X. They're your damned restrictions, keep it so they only restrict you. I can't bring myself to believe that the world around is us becoming so pussyfooted and politically correct that we have to abide by the dietary choices of third world countries. I never had a problem with Hinduism before beside the usual "they're deluded" issue I have with nearly every faith anyway, but this has gone too far.

Whenever you religious folks are done blowing things up, destroying free speech, and demanding special rights while you do it: Can the rest of us -- in the words of Marcus Brigstocke -- HAVE OUR PLANET BACK?
