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
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.
