Woman Who Won’t Eat Bacon Blocked from Foster Parenting

with 4 comments

For all of you who believe that life without bacon has no meaning you have a friend in Maryland.  Contemporary Family Services, a Maryland-based private foster agency authorized by the state to place children with foster parents has rejected the application of former foster child Tashima Crudup.  Ms. Crudup was a former foster child herself who wanted to be a foster parent because having been a foster child herself she wanted to give back.

Unfortunately, Ms. Crudup is a Muslim.  Now neither CFS nor myself have any problem with Ms. Crudup’s religion no matter that it damns her to eternal damnation in the afterlife.  What CFS has a problem with is that as a Muslim Ms. Crudup does not eat pork.   Contemporary Family Services does not want to put a child into that environment where he will miss out on the simple joys of childhood like a hotdog at the ballpark, bacon as part of a complete breakfast, or a bacon double cheeseburger served on a Krispy Kreme at a State Fair.

Some misguided politically correct fools will certainly consider this prejudice, but I would feel the same way if Ms. Crudup were a vegetarian or a Jew.  Now, In defense of Ms. Crudup she has promised to raise any children who were placed with her in their own religious tradition.  However, she never promised to let them eat pork.

So many of my favorite childhood memories are tied up with pork and I would never want to deny any child those same experiences.  But is pork good for children? Absolutely.  Today’s pork is leaner than ever and it’s got the nutrient punch that your child needs for hours of video games or just sitting back and watching tv.
