Pagan police ‘madness’
Date published: 17 May 2010
The right for pagan police officers to celebrate their festivals has been described by a Euro MP as “politically correct madness.”
The Pagan Police Association has just been officially recognised as a ‘diversity staff support organisation’ by the Home Office.
This means chief constables cannot refuse pagan officers’ requests to take official religious holidays, which will be given the same respect as Christmas for Christians, Ramadan for Muslims and Passover for Jews.
There are believed to be about 500 pagan officers - including druids and witches.
“I was appalled to hear of this ridiculous decision,” said Paul Nuttall, MEP for the UK Independence Party.
“These pagan festivals include believers behaving with unabashed sexuality and promiscuity, casting spells and dancing around naked. It is politically correct madness of high order.”
