The Scottie dogs used to lead out athletes in the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in Glasgow were “disrespectful” to Muslims, according to Malaysian politicians.

Terriers in tartan coasts embroidered with team names walked ahead of competitors from each country around the arena last week.

Mohamad Sabu, deputy president of the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party said all Islamic countries deserved and apology from organisers, the Telegraph reported.

“This is just so disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims – especially as it happened during Ramadan,” he added.

“Muslims are not allowed to touch dogs, so the organiser should have been more aware and sensitive on this issue.

"It is hoped this incident can teach other Western countries to be more respectful in the future."

It isn't very respectful to fly jets into buildings, either.  It isn't very respectful to stone people to death when in this country every form of capital punishment is under scrutiny.  Genital mutilation is absolutely disrespectful.  Beheading someone with knives is totally disrespectful.  Having sex with goats is offensive to PITA.  And they complain about dogs? :whocares:

If you don't like it, then stay the h&ll out of the Commonwealth Games.
Trump does not represent the will of the people.  If we really wanted to respect the decision of "the people," then Clinton would be the president-elect, not Trump, for the simple reason that she won the popular vote.
