A war on Christmas? Whatever would give you such an idea, Christianists?
Apparently, the Red Cross feels Christmas might be offensive to non-Christians. It’s logo? Oh, that’s fine. But Christmas? Why, that’s tantamount to hate speech! And stay tuned for the Leftist self-reveal at the end.
Christmas has been banned by the Red Cross from its 430 fund-raising shops. Staff have been ordered to take down decorations and to remove any other signs of the Christian festival because they could offend Moslems.
The charity’s politically-correct move triggered an avalanche of criticism and mockery last night – from Christians and Moslems. Christine Banks, a volunteer at a Red Cross shop in New Romney, Kent, said: ‘We put up a nativity scene in the window and were told to take it out. It seems we can’t have anything that means Christmas. We’re allowed to have some tinsel but that’s it.
‘When we send cards they have to say season’s greetings or best wishes. They must not be linked directly to Christmas. ‘When we asked we were told it is because we must not upset Moslems.’ Mrs Banks added: ‘ We have been instructed that we can’t say anything about Christmas and we certainly can’t have a Christmas tree.
‘ I think the policy is offensive to Moslems as well as to us. No reasonable person can object to Christians celebrating Christmas. But we are not supposed to show any sign of Christianity at all.’ Labour peer Lord Ahmed, one of the country’s most prominent Moslem politicians, said: ‘It is stupid to think Moslems would be offended.Yesterday officials at the charity’s London HQ confirmed that Christmas is barred from the 430 shops which contributed more than £20million to its income last year. ‘The Red Cross is a neutral organisation and we don’t want to be aligned with any political party or particular philosophy,’ a spokesman said.
Notice it’s lilly WHITE LIBERALS who are offended here, not Muslims. Of course, they’re only trying to show some concern for their little ethnic pets by taking offense on behalf of Muslims and other minorities. That’s mighty white of you, Libs!
Leftists want to ditch Christmas in order to be “neutral”. As if acknowledging (let alone celebrating) Christmas would be “taking sides” with one side vs the other, as if celebrating a religious holiday is some kind of opening salvo in a culture war. Gee, but I thought multiculti was a “celebration” of cultures, is it not? Aren’t we supposed to “celebrate diversity”? You know, like a big happy rainbow family! But instead they give the impression that these cultures, religions and ethnicities are actually engaging in a competition, or a war about which we must all stay “neutral”. Hmmm, this doesn’t sound like a very happy family at all.
So is this what multiculti is, Leftards? A war? A clash of civilizations within our own borders? An ethnic minefield to be carefully navigated across, not celebrated? Your slip is showing, Leftards! And you’re right, it IS a minefield.
And given this fact, THEN WHY PROMOTE MULTI CULTI if it’s so dangerous?
