Vermont: Restaurant Advertising Its Bacon Forced To Remove Sign After “Offended” Muslim Complains


In the Land of the Free you evidently have no right to offend the perpetually offended. What is truly offensive here, however, is not a sign that advertised bacon, but the fact that the restaurant felt it was necessary to remove it …

Qur’an Sura 5:3, “Forbidden to you (for food) are: dead meat, blood, the flesh of swine, and that on which hath been invoked a name other than that of Allah.”

Mmmm. Bacon.

Deliciousness!

By Hannah McDonald, WPTZ News – “A sign on a lamp post at the bottom of the Winooski Circle displayed the words ‘Yield Sneakers Bacon’ until Friday morning. The bistro owners took it down.

It got there as part of ‘Operation Bloom.’

A city program put it in place to keep its flower beds beautiful. If businesses do some gardening they can post an advertisement where they do it, but the word ‘bacon’ on the Sneakers Bistro sign started a discussion about diversity on the Winooski Front Porch Forum.

It started with a post from one woman who wrote that the sign was insensitive to those who do not consume pork. She said as a Muslim she is personally offended by it.

The owners of Sneakers spoke to WPTZ. They say they’ve reached out to the individual who made the post and proactively took the sign down. They also say they regret any harm caused by the sign, and that their goal was never to cause stress or bad feelings.

‘It’s nice that they were respectful enough to take it down,’ said Caleb Wiley an area resident, ‘but I also think they shouldn’t have, or had to at any right.’

Other Winooski residents joined the conversation, and online too. One post reads the word ‘bacon’ is not offensive. It’s something that describes food.

Winooski’s city manager spoke on behalf of the city. She said:

‘The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable. It’s a fascinating place with lots of opportunities for conversation. The City has to pay attention to a lot of factors while acting within what we can regulate,’ said Katherine ‘Deac’ Decarreau.” Read more.

    “Muslims” offend me in every aspect of their…”being!” Why can’t they be “removed” from this country on the same basis?

    Heck, their entire “Religion” is nothing but hatred for anyone that is NOT…Muslim!

    Their entire “Religion” should be “BANNED” from the World!

    It is an “offensive” Religion to everyone!!!

    So where does it all end? Hey, guess what… IT DOESN’T END!! Muslims are never, never, never satisfied with their never ending quest to wretch every idota of our Western freedoms away from us! KOWTOWING to their insane demands is beyond stupidity! This issue is essentially NOT about pork or pork products–IT’S ESSENTIALLY ABOUT SUBJUGATION AND CONTROL of the dhimmi kafirs–otherwise known as TRUE AMERICANS!

    THE ANSWER TO EVERY MUSLIM DEMAND IS NOOOOOO!!!

      Muslims learned at the feet of the devil. That is why they say no all the time. They think saying no is a righteous thing to do. God is not like that.The scribes and Pharisees against Jesus were like that. Muslims are blind to that.

    Post this when Pork is served.
    Muslims never do his:
    Philippians 4:8:Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
    1 Timothy 4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.

    Here is my humble suggestion for a response from the restaurant owner to the muslim trouble maker….

    My dear …..,
    Your recent post stating your personal offense regarding the the word ‘bacon’ found in the advertisement by the Sneakers Bistro has peaked my undivided attention. Unfortunately, your offensiveness cannot be justified nor entertained by this establishment. WE PREPARE, SERVE AND ADVERTISE DELICIOUS PORK PRODUCTS. They are clearly and openly advertised on our menu. Our regular customers DO NOT find that to be, in any way, offensive. What’s more, our cuisine has attracted the palates of countless customers who are DELIGHTED by our pork preparations.

    May we suggest that, as a muslim who has CHOSEN to live in this country where personal freedoms are SACRED AND GOD-GIVEN, you try assimilating and show some tolerance for your American neighbors whose customs may differ from your Middle-Eastern customs.

    Thank you for your attentiveness to this letter. You are welcome in our restaurant at any time. We promise to serve you and yours only quality American cuisine, which includes a variety of delicious pork products.

    Thank you, again for your interest shown to our establishment.

    Yv t,

    Nooh, “You really look stupid. bacon or swine meat is not only prohibited in Islam but also in Christianity”

    When I post about Islam I have at least done my homework and understand what it teaches. When you post about Christianity you are demonstrating your lack of understanding. Although there are some Christians who do not eat pork or who do not eat shellfish or who do not even drink alcohol, none of these things are prohibited in the New Testament, though eating and drinking in excess are.

    Mark 7:18-19, “And [Jesus] said to them, ‘Then are you also without understanding? Do you not see that whatever goes into a person from outside cannot defile him, since it enters not his heart but his stomach, and is expelled?’ Thus he declared all foods clean.”

    Ephesians 5:18, “And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit”

    There are only two times in the New Testament where a Christian is instructed to not eat something:

    1. Christians should not eat meat that has been sacrificed to false gods. This would include Halal meat that is prepared in accordance with Islamic guidelines whereby a prayer is recited to the Islamic god “Allah” while the animal is ritually slaughtered (Qur’an Sura 5:3). According to Biblical Scripture, all false gods are idols whether they are physical or immaterial. Since the god of Islam is a false deity on the grounds of Biblical Scripture, “Allah” is therefore an idol in the eyes of God.

    Acts 15:29, “You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols … You will do well to avoid these things.”

    1 Corinthians 10:19-21, “… the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.”

    2. Christians should not eat meat if it causes a new Christian believer to stumble in their faith. For example, if someone from a religion that forbid certain meats or even all meats in general converted to Christianity then mature Christians should not knowingly eat whatever was offensive to the new Christian in their presence until the new “child” in Christ has matured in their faith and understanding. Scripture is very clear that, even though we should abstain from eating something that could potentially cause a new Christian to stumble under such circumstances, we are otherwise free to eat anything. (This principle would apply to drinking as well).

    Romans 14:1-2, 15, 19-21, “Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters. One person’s faith allows them to eat anything, but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables… If your brother or sister is distressed because of what you eat, you are no longer acting in love. Do not by your eating destroy someone for whom Christ died… Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification… Do not destroy the work of God for the sake of food. All food is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble. It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall.”

    So now, every time a sign pops up that offends someone, it needs to be removed!?! Billions of dollars is spend on Advertising in America, and I for one can’t imagine the removal of a ‘Bacon’ sign being forced to remove holding up in a court of law…if so, I am packing my bags and leaving this country for good.

      Bacon upsets demons. 1 Timothy 4:1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; 2Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. 4For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: 5For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.
      Muslims have a conscious seared with a hot iron. They refuse to marry. They command to abstain from meats.
