Political correctness is going to cause more problems than religion could ever dream of.

I'm waiting for the moment we get told we can't drink Guinness anymore because it's black...

Pretty soon we'll change the pledge of allegiance to "One nation under a possibly invisible higher being, with liberty and justice for all"

shouldnt that be
"one nation, possibly more or maybe less. Under, over or whatever you feel most comfortouble with, a being with great signficance of no particular gender, race, creed, colour, sex, nationality or breed. With liberty and justice a choice for you the esteemed individual."
Anyhoo back to the telegraph article...... Don't know what they are on about, its the parents that make kids football competitive with the cries from the side line of "go on son..... get in him" and "oh for christ sake! where the hell were you?" and not forgetting "break his bloody legs". heeheehee it never ceases to amaze me!

But John Petrucci is such a long name, if you straight up say "Vai" its 3 letters so its close to the "revised original" as I call our current pledge
Plus petrucci is a robot and how many want to worship terminator? lol
