Heard on the Radio last night that a Hospital has now banned Carol Singers from performing on the wards - something they had done annually for many, many years. However, they were given the opportunity to sing in A&E and the staff canteen! - They politely declined! Add to that the announcement a few weeks ago that some councils are banning the performances of non-Christian Christmas music does anyone have any other PC stories to tell? Here a few more 'seasonal' stories I've found: The Daily Mail reported how home office officials are threatening to withdraw funding for a memorial carol service for the victims of crime because it is "too Christian". Even though the service (held at St Martin-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square) has been helping grieving relatives of homicide for 11 years now politically correct civil servants are warning that they are going to pull the plug on funding unless the service tones down its Christian content. The Daily Mail also reported how Inland Revenue staff have been banned from donating to a charity which helps send toys to needy children because of its links to Christianity. Lambeth council officers have are being careful to use the terms: "Winter Lights" and even "Celebrity Lights" - but have omitted the word Christmas from all promotional literature. Birmingham Council renamed Christmas 'Winterval' and Jobcentres banned Christmas trees and decorations. The Eden Project in Cornwall banned its employers from wishing people a Merry Christmas because the name Christ was in the greeting and it may offend people of other religions. The Red Cross charity shops have banned nativity scenes from their window displays at Christmas times because they do not want to have any religious imagery on display. Some shopping precincts throughout the UK banned the Salvation Army and other Christian groups from singing carols to shoppers in case they offended other religions. There has been a recent push to try and ban Bible's from hospitals. Leicester health trust in particular has led a push to ban them, claiming the presence of Bible's in hospitals will offend other religions.
