Nanny's Olympic Gordian Knot
I am always hugely gemused when Nanny ties herself in knots trying to be "fair and impartial" on the one hand, yet on the other trying not to "offend" anyone.
A particularly fine example of the Gordian Knots that she likes to construct for herself, is her decision to ban religious symbols from a "faith" badge designed for chaplains at the London Olympic Games.
Nanny is worried that the symbols cause offence.
How odd that religions that claim to teach tolerance and forgiveness are always so intolerant of those who have different views/religions.
The London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games (Locog) had asked its advisory committee of faith representatives to suggest ideas for a lapel pin, which is intended to symbolise the role of religious leaders for London 2012.
However, plans for a design featuring symbols of each of the nine faiths represented on the committee were rejected because not all religious believers would feel "comfortable" wearing symbols of other faiths.
Instead the lapel pin will simply feature the word "faith" and a globe, alongside the Olympics and Paralympics logos.
The badge will be worn by 193 faith chaplains, a Nannyesque title if ever there was one!
Frankly all this fuss and expense could have been avoided, all they need to do is wear the corporate logos of McDonald's and Coke, as it's not God or Locog that we should "thank" for the Games but the corporate sponsors!
