By the way… The Chinese zodiac has been around as part of their tradition or belief system (with animal symbols finalized) since about 200 B.C.E. and there are about 1.35 billion mainland Chinese. Islam was started in 622 C.E. and there are about 20 million Muslims in China.
Read the article and give me a break… no pigs… huh, is this a case of the tail wagging the dog (I mean pig)… see the article… oops most of them don’t like dogs either…
What a load of crap…
If as two ladies reminded me the other day I should respect the beliefs of others isn’t it right that others should respect my beliefs. It is my firm belief that their belief about pigs is a whole lot of crap and it is my belief that they should stop moaning and making a nuisance of themselves and should suffer the lovely little piggly wigglys in silence.
What about respecting the Chinese mainstream, are they to be robbed of the spiritual year of bounty and walk away from the fact that for them pigs are characterized as “honest, noble, generous and joyful”. Pig people are believed to take pleasure in caring for others and constantly worry about the happiness of everyone else in their life. I for one prefer this outlook than the mad bombing secular infighting pain in the backside winging, ‘you must respect me’ Muslim complainants with their anachronistic health fears.
Oh by the way we shouldn't respect the beliefs of others, thats another load of old thinking, they should have to justify their position on sound argument and proof, not just claim 'rights' or considerations just because its always been that way and because 'I believe it'.
