This is a question Political Correctness Gone Mad

Freddy Woo writes: "I once worked on an animation to help highlight the issues homeless people face in winter. The client was happy with the work, then a note came back that the ethnic mix of the characters were wrong. These were cartoon characters. They weren't meant to be ethnically anything, but we were forced to make one of them brown, at the cost of about 10k to the charity. This is how your donations are spent. Wisely as you can see."

How has PC affected you? (Please add your own tales - not five-year-old news stories cut-and-pasted from other websites)

I have a friend who is a preacherman ..
.. or whichever title is appropriate, in this case your language seems to have a lot of words for the same thing. He conducts sermons in a free church. Utterly nice chap, extrovert, splendid sense of humour. He once stated that I would have fit in perfectly with Monty Python. Did I mention that he is a nice chap?

Since I'm not really religious in any meningful sense, I've never seen him at work, but apparently it's both entertaining and fairly informal. You know, electric guitars, digital projectors, etc.

Last year he asked me if I could illustrate a passage from the Bible (I don't recall which) for his sermon. Use my creativity. Make something interesting. This was in the wake of the Mohammed Caricature crisis and the embassy fires had not entirely died out, so naturally I came up with this idea:

Oddly, it was turned down. Not by my friend though; he still holds the drawing in high regard and occasionally apologises that he was never allowed to use it.
