MONDAY'S GREGALOGUE: THE PC VIRUS

So according to an article in England's The Daily Mail, Muslim doctors and nurses will be allowed to opt out of strict hygiene rules aimed at stopping the spread of deadly superbugs. Apparently the change was made after female Muslims resented having their arms exposed below the elbow under new laws enacted in 2007. Some Muslims may be allowed to use disposable sleeves, although some say this "compromises patient safety." If you don't change the sleeves, you spread superbugs, which kill thousands of patients yearly.

Now, I don't care what religion you follow: if it compromises your job, and the safety of others - that blows. I mean, if Catholicism required that you wear a crucifix over your left eye at all times - I'm not hiring you as a pilot. Or a table dancer.

This decision to sacrifice hygiene to appease religion arrives just as our own government decides to remove the terms "Islamic extremism" and "jihad" from national security policy. Obama feels that linking Islam to terror is hurtful to non-terrorists. My philosophy is simple: I don't care what you call homicidal maniacs, as long as you kill them.

Which Obama's been doing, so cool.

But here's the thing: in British Hospitals, it's not generic extremism that's raising the risk for death. It's not violent radicals walking into ER's with bombs strapped to their chest. No - these are followers of Islam choosing not to follow sanitary rules, which raises risk for death. It's not as dramatic as a bomb, but it still can kill.

So, what do you call that?

In a way, it is a deadlier form of superbug - an idiotic political correctness running rampant in England, infecting every facet of life. Ultimately people die, because we're so afraid of hurt feelings. It's a sad state of affairs, which is why I'm boycotting crumpets.

And if you disagree with me, you're a racist homophobe who doesn't contribute to PBS.
