The charitys politically-correct move triggered an avalanche of criticism and mockery last night from Christians. 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 cant have anything that means Christmas. Were allowed to have some tinsel but thats it. When we send cards they have to say seasons 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 Muslims.
Mrs Banks added: We have been instructed that we cant say anything about Christmas and we certainly cant have a Christmas tree. I think the policy is offensive to Muslims 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.

Christians don't kill you when you diss them.
Defy the jackasses.
Maybe British Christians should just stop supporting the Red Cross with their contributions. Let the Muslims take up the slack.
so when will they change their logo to be less offensive to certain persuasions?
Jihad per TV realism series- All American Muslims
TLC Sunday, 9 PM CST
It is an attempt to manipulate Americans into ignoring the threat of jihad and to bully them into thinking that being concerned about the jihad threat would somehow victimize these nice people in this show.
The problem people have with Islam is its teachings of violence against and the subjugation of unbelievers. It is with the supremacist ideology and the fervent believers in those noxious doctrines of warfare and subjugation. Yhe ultimate danger posed by a program presenting the normal side of life for American Muslims is that it isnt accurate.
The danger is in the deception and obfuscation of the truth which results in the intellectual disarming of the American people.
Get up a petition. This atrosity MUST be stopped!
I guess Brits should save their donations for the Red Crescent.
Tere are what, 15 Christians left in England?
You beat me to it. The British seem bound and determined to hand over their country to these invaders. Wouldn't want to 'offend' them, you know.
That’s where they’re headed.
Soon God the Father will ban Islam so as not to offend Christ.
so they will drop Greenwich Mean Time for Mecca Mean Time
Indeed. Islam/Muhammad is the FALSE prophet spoken of in the Bible.
I now set forth a personal ban on the mention of any islamic or muslim holidays, as they offend me.
Sadly, in 2 years or less, you shall see the total destruction by violence of Britain.
Read my tag line, it is what keeps the US at the moment from going the same path.
We shall have SHTF, but it shall come in stealth by Presidential Edict, then the goon squads locking down transport thus starving people into submission.
I spoke with another Prepper, he said it would not fly as it would get knocked down by the sitting Members...
Have we seen anything obummer has done being struck down yet...
*** crickets ***
How about banning EID because it offends Christians, or Ramadan for that matter.
Oh, and change your Red Cross to a circle or square or something else.
lol. right. They might not notice.
So, the British Red Cross has been hostilely taken over by the Red Crescent.
So much for St. George.
Islam needs to be eradicated.
