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.

For why?

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!

    I'll be glad when Coe's egofest is over.

    Too PC for me......What possible enjoyment can any one get from an event where everyone is treading on eggshells all the time.....Perhaps, when we "won"(sic) the right to host the games, we should have said that no competition would take place in case we offended anyone or upset anyone, especially given that some will be losers.

  2. How is an athlete supposed to recognise a Faith preacher of the correct brand if they all wear the same label. "Oop sorry Immam, I wanted a Buddhist"?
