“Inclusiveness” marches on. British local councils are increasingly banning hot cross buns as “offensive” to non-Christians. As one spokesman said, “We can’t risk a similar outcry over Easter like the kind we had on Pancake Day [Shrove Tuesday]. We will probably be serving naan breads instead.”
It’s hard to figure out how much of an outcry there was, when the Muslim Council of Britain called the decision “very, very bizarre.” It may not matter though. The obvious systematic effect of such decisions is less to please minority religions and cultures than to suppress all inherited religions and cultures in the interest of uncontested social dominance by money and the therapeutic managerial state. So hot cross buns are out, and in the long run McDonald’s will most likely be in (at least as long as it offers a vegan option).
