I Don’t Think It’s So Much That the Teddy Bear

…was named ‘Mohammed’ (a truly bad teddy bear name if there ever was one)…

A British primary school teacher has been arrested in Sudan, accused of insulting Islam’s Prophet by letting her class of 7-year-olds name a teddy bear Mohammed, her school said on Monday.
Colleagues of Gillian Gibbons, aged 54 from Liverpool, told Reuters they feared for her safety after receiving reports that young men had already started gathering outside the Khartoum police station where she was being held.

…but that she let her mixed gender class VOTE on what to name him in the first place.

…Gibbons, who joined Unity in August, asked a girl to bring in her teddy bear to help the Year 2 class focus, said Boulos.
The teacher then asked the class to name the toy. “They came up with eight names including Abdullah, Hassan and Mohammed. Then she explained what it meant to vote and asked them to choose the name.” Twenty out of the 23 children chose Mohammed.

Concepts of democracy and female decision-making are not part of the training track, I’ll betcha. You can kiss Teddy Ruxpin adios.

And, in keeping with the best traditions of TRoP, the seven year old ‘catmeat-in-training’ accomplice is on the hotseat as well.

…The bear itself was not marked or labeled with the name in any way, he added, saying Sudanese police had now seized the book and had asked to interview the 7-year-old girl.

    When the Presbyterians give a rape victim 200 lashes you know this poor dear is in for a whoopin’.

    See, I know that picture is a fraud. The Presbyterians feed their teddy bears into the woodchipper feet-first, the better to enjoy the screams of terror.
    On a related note, I’ve decided to buy a stuffed pig and let the neighborhood kids vote on a name.

    If you’ll recall, oh Catholic infidel, they’re also WAAAYYYYY big on decapitations, duh.
    And isn’t it a wild juxtaposition? Raping and pillaging amok on a genocidal level in Darfur, SUDAN and nothing to be done about it, whilst over in the capital of SUDAN there’s plenty o’ time to ‘investigate’ and apportion lollygagging lashes for blasphemous bears.
    WHAT a country!

    Oh we can’t have anyone insulting a murdering, thieving pedophile now can we?

    Islam needs to be destroyed with a guided solar flare.
