A library in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, hosted a
Muslim party to celebrate the end of Ramadan, then one week later told
a Christian group they could not put a notice up about a Christmas
service. Church officials were told the notice could not be
displayed because they pertained to a "religious preference group."
It's not "diverse."
The Muslim festival, however, was advertised by
leaflets dispensed throughout the library. It was organized by the
library's multicultural services librarian, Rehana Nazir at
Buckinghamshire county council.
Michael Stillwell said, "It seems like pure hypocrisy
to hold a festival from one religion and to then ban a simple notice."
Michael had been given a leaflet by library staff to join the Muslim
"I am appalled at the attitude of these so-called
Christians making such a fuss about this policy. The way they have
reacted to the party is just shocking," said Margaret Dewar, the
councilor in charge of libraries. "It is quite a different thing
having a party organized by a library to promote cultural
understanding, and accepting notices for religious services."
Indeed, Buckinghamshire's website is probably the
most "politically correct" site seen to date.
