too warlike

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jul 06, 2006

Crusader tops dragon, only to find himself snarled in the tentacles of political correctness. From the Daily Mail:

The Church of England is considering rejecting England's patron saint St George on the grounds that his image is too warlike and may offend Muslims.

Clergy have started a campaign to replace George with St Alban, a Christian martyr in Roman Britain.

The scheme, to be considered by the Church's parliament, the General Synod, has met a cautious but sympathetic response from senior bishops.

Have you ever thought of re-branding yourselves The Golden Eagles?
