Bridgette Bardot Cited For Racial Hatred in Fighting for Humane Animal Treatment

In France you can be as brutal as you want to animals as long as you are an ethnic minority.

In December 2006, Miss Bardot, 73, now an animal rights activist, wrote to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, then the interior minister, criticising the Muslim practice of slaughtering sheep without first stunning them.

In the letter published by the magazine Info-Journal and handed out to members of the Brigitte Bardot Foundation, she wrote: "We're fed up with being led by the nose by this population that is destroying us, destroying our country by imposing its acts".

Several French anti-racism groups filed for charges of "inciting discrimination and racial hatred" against Muslims.

That's odd. I didn't realize being a Muslim automatically meant you are a different race.

It is staggering in today's day and age that silly religions still have so much sway in our societies - especially when their rituals involve such bizarre and absurd and of course barbaric acts! Kudos to Bardot for using her celebrity to give a voice against this foolishness - whats next, will children be jailed for denouncing the existance of santa claus!?
