museum displays hidden so as not to offend pagans and other sensitives … our wacky world today

bat Well here we go again. It not only never ends, it gets worse. But that won’t surprise anyone.
I think it’s all because we have so much leisure time and so much time to dream up new dizzily stupid things that past generations might have laughed at. And then locked up the people who advanced stupidity.

A few weeks ago I was certain I’d found the Moonbat award for the year, even though the year isn’t finished yet.  I just didn’t think in the short time left, anyone would come up with a higher level of social insanity.  But hey .... leave it to the legions of the politically correct morons who sadly are in charge of things.

Mummy dearest .... why are you hiding?
So as not to offend those more sensitive souls.

Welcome to more of the world of IDIOTS! batbatbat


Hide your mummies! Museum displays of human remains are covered up for fear of offending pagans

Museums are hiding away mummies and human remains for fear of offending pagans and other minority groups, it has been revealed.
They are putting up warning signs, closing previously opened coffins and displaying exhibits in darkened cases.
This is despite the fact that such displays are among the most popular attractions.

The move is designed to give the skeletons and mummies ‘privacy’ and to avoid upsetting faith groups and even some museum staff, according to academic findings.

Research shows how 17 museums have drafted policies on human remains, with most advocating that signs are put up to warn visitors of their presence.
Manchester University Museum’s policy requires consultation before displaying human remains, particularly with what it calls ‘marginalised communities and faith groups’.

At the insistence of a pagan group called Honouring the Ancient Dead, it removed the head of an Iron Age bog body – the skull of Worsley Man, which was found buried near Manchester 50 years ago – from display.


It also covered up the unwrapped mummy of Asru, the partially-wrapped mummy of Khary, and a child mummy with sheets. The three mummies were uncovered only after a public protest.

Meanwhile, the Egypt gallery at Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery has changed its display of Egyptian human remains.
Instead of the previous display of mummies in open coffins, it now exhibits them with half closed lids, which it considers more respectful.

Here’s a comment from the source at the Daily Mail.  Kinda says it all.

More PC insanity, ancient people went to extreme lengths to claim a little slice of immortality utilising mummification and other skills handed down over generations so now PC dimwits and members of other shallow hippy new age ‘religions’ make it so the small story from the past that these ancestors have to tell is ignominiously silenced as they are hidden away at the back of museum storerooms or re-buried.

It seems totally illogical that academics have to listen to people who go around claiming to be witches or druids anyway, these loons would be far too dimwitted to survive in pre-Christian times when the the old belief systems flourished and certainly should not be involved in destroying the archaeological heritage of this or any other country on the basis of half baked, rehashed quasi-religious dogma most likely pieced together from less than accurate Victorian history books and a mish-mash of local folk tales.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
