First they banned Piglet. Now this!

Back in October we noted that the UK was on its way "Banning Porky Pig, Pooh, & Piglet to mollify Muslim sensibilities" (October 7, 2005). Now, it seems, a girl has been sent home from school for wearing a crucifix at a UK school where Sikhs are permitted to carry ceremonial kirpan daggers and wear them as religious symbols. (See Sky News, "Anger Over Crucifix Ban," December 6, 2005)
