    Yup.

    Let's put it this way, if I move to France, or China, or Iran....I won't demand they bend to my tastes/beliefs/etc. I will adjust to them. I expect the same here.
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

      When I go to India, I'm not going to demand they remove the cashews from whatever curry they're selling just because I'm allergic.

        I wouldn't do that, I'd (guess what) NOT ORDER IT.

          That said, there probably does need to be a pork-free option in some of these communities where Muslims are a growing minority. And I'm not talking about vegetable slumgullion, either.

            Huh. Thought maybe it was guilt for the Shoah. Would have been a better reason. Still very stupid, but better.

              Options are fine and dandy. But to ban it all? Naw, that's BS.

                Were they really serving pork that often that there needs to be any sort of big deal made out of this either way. Seems a lot of people are whining about it for no reason. (whether they agree with the ban or not)

                In all my years in school I can probably count on both hands how often I had pork. If they hadnt announced it would anyone have even noticed?

                  That's kinda the point. Muslims came in, "NO PORK!!!!!!!!!!!!"
                  "Well, ok, can't offend anyone, guess we can't serve pork anymore."
                  "WHAT? NO PORK?! BOMB IT ALL!"

                  It's sad. Honestly, really sad." All the kowtowing and over-reaction.....

                      I know itís not the joke youíre trying to make, but German pork dishes are on par with American pork dishes. There was something absolutely divine about Die Postís schweineschnitzel in Herrsching-Ammersee. I think I had it for something like three nights during the first two weeks I spent there in 2017. I also had some roast pork at the abbey (?) a little ways away. Sehr gut.

                        Umm...I think you mean aren't on par, because German pork destroys American pork of any cut. Most American pork has had all the fat bred out of it - the crap you buy from the meat bathtub at Kroger, Cub Foods, King Soopers, Fred Meyer, Safeway, etc. is dry and bad. Even the tenderloin is lean and is only tender because it's tenderloin.

                          Can I ask, why should these schools have to do this? Is it wrong or impossible for them to offer another protein option that would also cover the Muslim kids? Or is the concern that doing so would alienate them from the non-Muslim kids?

                          I honestly can't think of another country in Europe with a bigger love affair with pork (maybe Austria or Poland). Eliminating it entirely from a public school because of one religious group seems like overkill.

                          That said, the AfD and the Neo-Nazis can go to hell for threatening violence over it.
                          I had the same exact thoughts.

                              Yeah, but I was thinking along the lines of what we do with BBQ. Thatís an elevation of pork in a different and incredible way.
