Leaving open the question of whether or not Muslims really want a Secret Santa in the first place.

There's really pretty much nothing about this story
that isn't wrong! One guy makes a tasteless joke. The other guy really isn't offended. The religious community backs him on the not being offended thing. Not so offensive cop forced to quit the force anyway.

Why, yes, I'd say this is Political Correctness taken to its logical conclusion.

File under "dumb-assery."

uh, "giving condoms to a catholic" ??
When did that become funny? Same with bacon and wine to a Muslim. Or a picture of Hitler to a German. Not necessarily racist, just plain not-funny.

I'm with Janiece, file under dumd-asstardery.

Like I said, I can't think of a single thing about that situation that isn't wrong...including making the first idiot feel like he had to quit because of it. Couldn't his boss have just said, "That was an asshole thing to do. Don't be an asshole." End of story.

I wish instead of over-the-top political correctness, we could all concentrate on "Not being dicks."

And yeah, that's totally not politically correct. But sheesh.
