Gone mad? Or faking it for the benefits?

On the wall where I work there is a series of posters reflecting the politically correct, non judgemental, equal opportunities, world village, non-prejudicial, universal acceptance ethos of any government funded organisation. It is to be expected, and no doubt right and proper. So there is a poster showing the Christian Great Commandment, another the Muslim Five Pillars of Wisdom, there’s one for the Hindu Three Pathways, and one for the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. All very interesting, and possibly helpful in a sort of corporate touchy feely way (urgh, creepy).

But, without wanting to disadvantage anyone, or leave anyone out of this public service circle of love, I fail to see how the Ten Native American Indian Commandments (seriously) are more relevant than texts from another one of the twenty different faiths from Atheism to Zoroastrianism listed on the BBC religions page but there it is. This in an obscure corner of the uk that still considers a curry to be a bit “foreign”.

I feel I should rant, but apathy wins again. See you in the pub.
