Q: You eat pork in front of a Muslim, you racist!!!

I heard this from the radio the other day. This was a personal story of a mainland chinese girl working in USA, who posted it on her Facebook. 

 

One day, she got tired of eating the food in the company's canteen so she went out and got some pork whatever for lunch.

 

As she was eating her lunch, two other Muslim girls, her colleagues came along and asked if they could join her. Of course she said yes. 

 

As the three were chatting along happily, another colleague, an American girl came along. Upon seeing she was eating pork in front of the two Muslim girls the American girl immediately reprimanded her for not respecting Muslim culture. She explained she was there first.

 

The other two Muslim girls, seeing that, said they did not mind her eating pork at all and they didn't feel being disrespected. At this point, the American girl said the two Muslim girls were being disrespectful of the Muslim culture, their own culture. 

 

You tell me, is this world weird or not?

Weird isn't the word I'd choose.. I might go something like ludicrous or pathetic instead.

 

Seriously, people who are just going out there trying to be offended by something have had life too easy IMO. People who are working hard, doing their best to get by in life don't tend to get upset by nonsense like that.

The American girl is clearly an idiot! Sounds like a typical "safe space" SJW who thinks she knows what minorities & people of different religions think.

"You have to feel insulted, because I think you should be".

 

Moron!

 

Let alone the stupidity of not allowing someone to believe what they want, without being forced to kowtow to anyone else's beliefs (when there is no violence or force involved).

Muslims have shown us no trust nor stability in the world today. While a Muslim could be be sitting in front of me with full loving heart, I couldn't trust them. A culture that leads them to do crazy things and believe the things they do could make me care less about what they don't like.

 

So I'm happy to eat the fattest pork meat in front of any Muslim.

 

Yes, I voted for Trump!

American liberals are dumb, they are too stupid to understand that Muslim are not allowed to eat pork and that edict comes down from their religion. It has 0 bearing on anyone else.

on the news they are claiming the new generation (15 - 26 +/-) are a bunch of crybabies.  some stories about they way they reacted to Trump's win were like something out of a funny movie.  Supposedly they had to be 'comforted' so they wouldn't die from depression I guess.  Stories say the university would arrange a 'safe place' for them to chill out in. And provide them with (are you ready?) Hot cocoa, coloring books, and Play Doh !!!    lmfao

*that girl upset about the pork thing fits right in with this crowd, haha.

One more reason I'm happy to live in China and not the west.
People here aren't PC, they will have a good look but usually mind their own business.
I wouldn't be surprised if Miss SJW then tried to report her to HR for racism, with the aim of getting her fired.
I love it when this type of person comes to China, they usually explode within a year at the whole "otherness" of the place.

here is a crazy real story for you

 

we have a teacher from america, inter racial marriage, looks more white than black married to an american who happens to be black.

 

a chinese student comes in to the office and sees the photo of her family and says in horror " you married to the black" as if "are you crazy", It was a very awkward moment and I promptly got up and left for some coffee. The student of course did not think anything was wrong at all with his response.

Muslims are part of a religious (Islam), not a specific racial group. It's impossible to be correctly called a racist in the context suggested.

The  prohibition of eating pork in Islam is derived from the following Surah of the Qur’an:

“Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah.”

[Al-Qur’an 5:3]

BTW,

The Bible also prohibits the consumption of pork.

“And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be cloven footed, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you”.

“Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcass shall ye not touch, they are unclean to you.”

[Leviticus 11:7-8]

“And the swine, because it divideth the hoof, yet cheweth not the cud, it is unclean unto you. Ye shall not eat of their flesh, nor touch their dead carcass.”

[Deuteronomy 14:8]

A similar prohibition is repeated in the Bible in the book of Isaiah chapter 65 verse 2-5.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
