Posted on 09/18/2013 7:41:04 PM PDT by massmike
Dont expect to see Christmas lights, Christmas trees, or other Christmas decorations in one part of Berlin, Germany, even on private property, after officials in the Kreuzberg district banned the display of anything that celebrates the Christian holiday because someone might be offended.
Why should religious festivals be celebrated in public? asked Socialist Party Councilor Martin Becker.
The censorship was supported by the left-wing councilman as a response to demands by Muslims in the district that they be allowed to celebrate the end of Ramadan in the streets. Due to a fear of noise complaints, council officials decided that the best solution was to ban all religious festivals from being publicly celebrated in the district.
The ban includes decorations on private property if they could be seen by the public, according to reports. And the only exception reportedly will be a location the government would designate for a Christmas tree.
But other controversial events will still be allowed to take place in the area. According to an interview Becker gave to a local Berlin news outlet, gay and lesbian festivals will still be permitted to take place in Kreuzberg.
The measure also took away honorary awards for citizens based upon religious merit, as left-wing councilors saw no religious service as worthy of consideration.

I was once visiting in Bavaria during the Christmas season, and I have never seen such beautiful decorations as I saw there. Everywhere you looked, there were beautiful decorations, and crunching through the snow to walk around and look at them is one of my fondest memories.
Imagine the confusion if the Christians were to start singing “Don we now our GAY apparel”......
When I lived in Berlin, Kreuzberg was full of Muslims, freaks and left-wingers. I would be VERY surprised to see this spread to other parts of Berlin or Germany as a whole.
I fear its coming all too soon....
How intolerant. What if the presence of Moozlims offends me? Do they have to leave?
‘The censorship was supported by the left-wing councilman as a response to demands by Muslims in the district’
They want to rid the world of all vestages of Christianity
They are going to have to change the name of the city so it doesn’t offend them since ‘kreuz’ means ‘cross’ in German.
I hope it doesn’t spread and ruin my Retail Travel Tours to Germany’s Christmas Markets. Where’s the tolerance I always hear libs chirp about?
i would call upon all germans to ignore this law. and fight all lawsuits. have churches help fund defenses of the lawsuits. get freaking organized and start dealing with this and fight for your right to be christians. it is also cultural heritage here. hundreds to over a thousand years andmore of heritage. preserving cultural identity.
I was in Regensburg one Christmas and it was beautiful - an old medieval town decorated in lights with a choir singing in the market square. It was enchanting.
Liberals will have us all wearing black burkas and using candlelight once they are done.
"Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?"
Yep. It is definitely time for some meetings.
“Kreuz’’, the German word for ‘’cross’’. Boy, there’s irony for you.

Why is it any of your business what people do on their own property, you control freak, goose-stepping tyrant of a SOB?
The Germans drop their drawers and bend over for the Muzzies. Whodda thunk!
