Long John Silver's MOA [Mall of America] restaurant owner apologizes to Muslim familyIn the letter, the restaurant's manager stated the following:
When a Muslim family paid a visit to Long John Silver's last month and purchased a kid's meal for their toddler, they got a little Jesus love along with their popcorn shrimp. The free toy provided with the meal was a "Build with Jesus" notepad featuring a Bible verse. When the family asked for an alternative, nothing was provided.
The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) filed a complaint against Long John Silver's parent company, Yum! Brands, asking the company to look into claims that religious literature was distributed with a children's meal.
On Wednesday, CAIR announced an apology from the Long John Silver's restaurant owner....
Yum! had nothing to do with the free toy promotion, according to Oborn. It was his own initiative at his own store.Read the rest HERE.
"My wife and I both feel that the Bible promotes good, wholesome values," he said. "We just felt this was a wholesome thing to hand out."...
Islam considers Jesus to be one of the prophets. So why the big deal over a toy depicting a prophet? Because the toy depicts a human form?
No doubt, CAIR wouldn't have objected to a sword toy included with a kids' meal as such a sword toy would be an acceptable Islamic symbol representative of Islamic supremacism.
In any case, this incident with Long John Silvers Restaurant is yet another example, albeit small, of (1) Moslems determined to make over the United States in the image of Arabia and (2)a subservient response on the part of yet another American practicing multiculturalism.
How long before the Christmas lights on my house, lights which can be interpreted as symbolic of the Light of the World, become offensive to Moslems and bring CAIR down on my head?
