‘It’s Pork or Nothing’, ‘And if You Don’t Like it, Take Your Children Home’, Muslim Parents Told

Muslim parents have reacted angrily in a French town after the mayor announced it was ‘pork or nothing’ for school lunches, under the principles of the secular republic which dictates that religion should have no place in state institutions – including schools.

The change came after the catering company that provides meals to the 180 students in the small town of Sargé-lès-Le-Mans in southern France reported difficulties providing alternate meals for the 15 Muslim children on pork-based meal days. Declaring the local school free of religious influence, what in France is known as “laicïté”, or the “principle of Republican neutrality”, the mayor told parents it would from thereon be “pork or nothing”

    Amazing. I’m actually admiring something the *French* are doing. I guess it takes the Muslims.

    • Maggat

      Ya, it’s hard to believe.

    • tom_billesley

      It’s about time the French started acting like Franks toward mahometans.

      Expect this to be struct down by the EU court or whatever it is called.

    great readers comments re Breitbart article

  • Good. Make your own kids lunch.

    Do Jews send their kids to public schools and demand kosher lunches?

    • They win this and the next step is mandatory halal for the whole school.

      “Do Jews send their kids to public schools and demand kosher lunches?”
      No, and I would add that if you aren’t Jewish, there’s no reason at all not to eat pork. Just because we can’t eat it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. So, enjoy!

      Also, Jewish law says that if a person will die if he doesn’t eat pork, he is REQUIRED to, in order to save his life.

      • Actually I don’t eat pork, but it’s because I feel bad for the pigs.

      Even Christians are pretty much obliged to go vegan every Friday. Having one meatless day a week is probably good for you.

  • BillyHW

    Wild and crazy idea, but when I was in school parents fed their own children.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      ha Oh man, you *are* out there, aren’t you? 😉

    • Brett_McS

      It’s still done that way in the crazy, upside down land of Oz.

    • Surele Surele

      We did. And kids used to love swapping their lunches, comparing, and enjoying the whole ‘surprise’, what Mom made for lunch today! Whaaaa… mini pizzas! or, crap; cheese “sangwich”.

    Call them “extra special ramadan fasting days.”
    Problem solved.

    They can all put on burkhas and play soccer while the infidels mange jambon.

      “They can all put on burkhas and play soccer” with an infidel’s head for a ball.

  • “Muslim parents have reacted angrily”, as usual.

    • Surele Surele

      Anger is the natural mindset. Regardless of the flavour of the day.

      • tom_billesley

        Hate is their mindset. Anger is just a display to get what they want.

        • gonzales27

          I thought they used bombs and AK 47’s to get what they wanted

    Let them bring lunch in a brown bag or lunch pail, the way we did.

    • Barrington Minge

      For mooslims, it needs to be a black (body) bag

    Admiration??? For the French?!?!?!

    I think I need to lie down… 😉

    • Rosenmops

      Maybe this is a sign of the end times!

      • UCSPanther

        The French do have a reputation for being unpredictable, after all…

  • Barrington Minge

    Way to go France. These people are a minority group. Conform or starve…Simples!!

    A friend of mine lived and worked in France for a while, and found the French unbearably social. If they invited you to a party, you had better show up, and if the food wasn’t Kosher (it never was) you had to pretend to eat something, or they would be terribly offended and angry with you. So their attitude of “pork or nothing” seems rooted more in their culture, as opposed to any strength of character, it would seem to me.
    Also, that friend said he decided to leave France, when a Frenchman (not a Muslim) tried to burn his house down.
    Sill, I support the French on this issue, because if you give Islam a bit, it will want the whole thing, and will leave nothing for you.

      “…that friend said he decided to leave France, when a Frenchman tried to burn his house down.”

      Can we hear the rest of that story?

      • Just a thought

        LOL – that’s about all I know of it. but next time I see him I’ll ask for more details.

        • Drunk_by_Noon

          I just can’t get rid of the vision of a French Mime crouched outside your friend’s bedroom window trying to light an imaginary fire.

          But yes, if you find out, please share it with us.

    When, exactly, did parents stop making lunches for their kids? When I went to school I brought my own lunch, as did everyone else.

    • ferd

      I made my own damned lunch! That way I got to eat what I liked.

      • simus1

        Chips, gravy, and the biggest glass they sold filled to overflowing from the Swedish Milkshake machine.
        Sinfully over the top, calories wise.
        How I miss those days.

      Must have died out some time ago. Certainly I went to school, we always brought our own lunch. Graduated 1969, BC.

    Now if the Canadian government followed suit then maybe Canada would not be on the destruction course it is on. People come here from all these God forsaken countries and all they want to do is change everything to suit them. I wonder what the ancestors of the European people that fought and died for this country to make it one of the great countries would think and wonder if they died in vain. It seems to me it is freedom to newcomers and yet restrictions on the generations of people who have made this country great. What a shame.
