Yes you read that headline correctly – and unfortunately. The only conundrum for me here is this: is this story best placed under the heading of idiotic, loony, moonbat political correctness, or the triumph of creeping sharia? I guess it properly belongs under both headings.
When I first heard about this, it was so overwhelmingly incredible, bizarre and mind-numbing, that I assumed it could not be a true story. But with even the BBC now getting into the act and reporting it, I guess it sadly is true. However I am still almost left without words over this.
The story as one write-up has it goes like this:
Two people who threw bacon and wrapped it around door handles at a mosque in Scotland were sent to prison on Friday. Douglas Cruikshank, 39, and Chelsea Lambie, 18, were convicted over the attack at Edinburgh’s Central Mosque in January last year. The consumption of pork is forbidden in Islam.
A court in Scotland’s capital heard that the pair were associated with the far-right Scottish Defence League.
