No more chocolate mousse for you little French school kiddie

It might offend the Muslim students

From Eric Dondero:

Did you know chocolate mousse has some "pork gelatin" in it? Apparently enough to offend one French city's Muslim population.

From leplus French news site:
E PLUS. La ville du Havre a décidé de jeter 8500 mousses au chocolat car celles-ci contenaient de la gélatine de porc. Une mesur qui a été prise à la dernière minute par la mairie. Yves Bertrand, conseiller municipal (PRG), souligne que la laïcité est de plus en plus bafouée dans la ville. Cette mesure était déplacée selon lui...

Un certain nombre des responsables administratifs de la ville ont considéré qu'il fallait retirer ces mousses au chocolat pour ne pas déplaire aux personnes d’une certaine confession religieuse.

(Translation mine) The city of La Havre has decided to get rid of chocolate mousse because it contains pork gelatin. A measure that was taken at the last minute by the municipality. Yves Bertrand, Councillor (PRG), points out that secularism is increasingly flouted in the city. This measure was taken by him...

A number of administrative officials of the city felt it was necessary to remove the chocolate mousse not to displease the people of a certain religion.
