Cartoon Pigs of the Apocalypse: Turkey Bans Piglet
I do not go in for bashing other countries, but this is just stupid. A country that can not own up to a genocide inflicted on the Armenian people...but they can take the time to ban a cartoon pig.
The story is over at Sandmonkey (link).
The British did it and now in Turkey.
So let's get the run down here for Turkey in the past year (a short and by no means exhaustive list):
The Continued Denial of the Armenian Genocide (link) (link)
Fr. Santoro Murdered (link)
A cover up in Fr Andrea Santoro’s murder (link)
Turkish Authorities Ignoring the Crime (link)
A priest is beaten in Izmir, to the cries of “we will kill you all” (link)
When the children of the Black Sea are taught to hate priests (link)
Catch a killer? Nope.
Stop the beatings of Christians? Nope
Recognize History? Nope
Allow people to worship as they choose? Nope.
Hey wait...is that a cartoon Pig? GET IT!!!
And I thought Piglet lost his way alot.
