The Exact Opposite of Tolerance Masquerading As "Tolerance"

If a Kosher-keeping, orthodox Jew in Britain raised this same utterly moronic issue, he would quite rightly be laughed out of the room (and lectured about what a prick he is because of Israel).

When Muslim sensibilities come into play, on the other hand, a rule must be quickly and breathlessly instituted in the name of "tolerance."

Surely, occasionally having to countenance the image of a cartoon piglet on a co-worker's coffee mug or desk calendar is the "tolerant" thing to do here, rather than forcing a co-worker to expunge every trace of Piglet-related paraphernalia.

Are workers at this office forbidden from bringing ham sandwiches for lunch?
