The funny thing, A Christmas Tree has nothing to do the Christianity. The tree is secular!


I was going to mention the Tree not being Christian, but it is in fact a Northern European pagan tradition, although pretty much all of Christmas was originally pagan traditions co-opted to make the conversion to Christianity more acceptable to the heathens...

That said, I am not surprised that the heart of the EU monolith is bowing. It is after all the birthplace of political correctness and over-legislation of every aspect of our lives. Yet another reason to knock this experiment on it's head and withdraw.

A good place to start in working out why Europe has lost pride in its own culture would be to ponder who controls the media.


Two world wars fought on it's soil, bankrupted and destroyed nations, coupled with starvation and social chaos mate. That's what happened to Europe, the UK included. There was no way, after WW2, that collectively we would be allowed to feel proud about anything again.

You're right Andy, it is not.
Read my post here, it's merely economic interests. In this case, abused to blame muslims indeed.


Exactly,

But sadly, no-one is interested in the truth.

The worry is that I think a lot of people really do believe that decisions such as this are done to pander to muslims. Perhaps because deep down they want it to be true? Dunno.

Well, the same thing happened in Japan, but people here are not ashamed of their culture, nor the government.

Stupid if true.

We shouldn't be offended by anyone's religion any longer. Not to mention why should Muslims be offended? Christ was a Prophet in their eyes just not the Messiah same in Judaism. Any symbols of any religion or decorations of any holidays should be put on display. Children in schools should be able to pray to whatever God they worship... so on and so on. The whole world can be multicultural and multi-worshiping all we need is for people to stop whining that 'You can't do that here'.

There hasn't been a concentrated political effort in Japan though to try and kill off any sense of national pride, quite the contrary in fact.

Exactly, now it`s hard to get that back. The blain wash really worked out for someone.

So, they state they did it so as not to offend certain people, but them claim it wasn't to accommodate certain people? Seems a bit contradictory to me!

This sort of thing has already gone too far, in too many places. Sorry, but I don't think countries should 'accommodate" hostile cultures. Especially when said cultures refuse to accept anyone different. Well, I find it offensive that people think they have some right to not be offended. I fond it more offensive to think that leaders will take such actions, in many cases, to avoid possible violence. Basically, they act out of fear. No group that uses fear to get their way has any place in a free society.

This reminds me of another case, where school kids were told they could not wear American flag t-shirts on Cinco de Mayo, in a United States school. The supposed reason? Fear of violence by offended Hispanics. I would bet that this is the same reason they got rid of the Christmas tree display. Fear of violence, in that case, from Muslims that were "offended".

I say let them be offended, and they can learn to grow up and realize they don't have a right to tell other people what they can believe.

And yet Europeans built the modern world. Western culture, science and social institutions have been successfully exported all around the globe.

Europe and the West has much to be proud of.

You are correct, but there are revisionist "historians" out there trying to claim that Muslims brought all the knowledge to Europe. Wish I was kidding: I actually rejected a few school books, when shopping for the kids' school stuff this year, because of pro-Islam rewrites.
