    Nick Barnfield and Sara Cleaves were riding on a city bus with their 15 month old daughter. Like any young child she needed to be entertained, so her parents started singing a theme song from a popular children’s program, Peppa Pig. This song includes snorting sounds, because that’s what pigs do.

    The parents were unaware, but there was a muslim woman wearing a head scarf. This woman took offense to their singing, which she took as being directed toward her. She even called them racist. So what is Islam, a race or religion? That comparison makes no sense. You can’t be racist toward a religion…

    The couple said, “A lady came up to us and quite aggressively started telling us we were irresponsible parents and that we were being racist singing the song,”
    She then tried to complain to the bus driver to get these intolerant miserable parents off her now Muslim bus…

    “She went up to the bus driver and told him we were being racist towards her…The driver came up to me and said we had to get off the bus or the police would have to come.”
    The downside to when Muslims act irrationally in public is that it embarrasses the people they’re screaming at and they just want to give in to escape the public awkwardness.

    “We were really embarrassed, ashamed and upset and we hadn’t done anything wrong- just trying to make our little girl happy. But people were looking at us as if we had done something wrong,”
    The driver of the bus told the couple,

    ‘Go now, otherwise you’ll hold up all the passengers and no-one will be happy.’

    No reason to be embarrassed - as you did nothing wrong.

    Now if an incident had happened in a Muslim country, and the American were "offended" - what course of action would the Muslim bus driver had taken?

    I'd tell the lady that she was welcome to go back to her (backward) point of origin.
