(summary from German) The German Green Party wants to exchange one of the Christian Holidays for a Muslim Holiday. The Green minister in the cabinet agrees to the plan but coalition partner SPD (social-democrats) don't think the economy allows such a plan.
The Christian-democrats do not agree with the plan because of Germany being a country based on Christianity.
Around 3,4 million of the 82 million Germans are Muslim.
Ok FReepers, fire away.
I'm sure Muslims could enjoy celebrating Good Friday. Not only can Muslims celebrate the death of an infidel, they can also educate the non-Muslim world to Allah's proper use of execution--beheadings.
Why step into the grave when you can leap into it, instead?
The Germans lost the flower of their manhood during the last two World Wars. The United States is losing the flower of it's manhood because of abortion, and lack of reproduction by the younger generations. In another generation or two, we will be in the same position that the "Girly Men " of Germany are in.
Well, it WAS a country based on Christianity...
I've got one. How about a holiday celebrating the defeat of the Muslims at the gates of Vienna in 1683. See, that works for everybody. The Muslims are part of it and it serves to remind everyone of the need to turn back the Muslim terrorists now.
These poor fools, so blinded are they by their conceit, that they can't see that the very thing they abhor.....religion.....is the very thing they are encouraging to take root and spread. Their conceit makes them believe they can allow a man-eating tiger to live in the 'chicken coop' aka secular Germany.
That the Marxists are building a coalition with the Islamists is not suprising. I've always thought since the fall of the USSR, the commies have been using the Islamofascists.
Eurabia here we come. Just think, Muhammadans battled for centuries trying to overtake Europe. Now all one has to do to conquer Europe is just walk in and demand it to be handed over through the courts.
Well you know those 35 hour work weeks can get really fatiguing. I think the German people need to have the whole month of Ramadan off. The poor dears.
Give'em an Arab Crystal-nacht.
Then they can get onto removing the other Christian holidays that "offend" them and oppressing women...

Atlanta, GA, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- Muslim students in Georgia's largest school district would be excused for Friday prayer under an agreement between Muslim leaders and school officials. link

"This suggestion clearly shows that the Greens want to maintain completely their naive multicultural politics", said Bavarias Ministers of the Interior Guenther Beckstein (CSU) to this newspaper. Those failed because of the long-established realities. "Our Western culture and tradition are the reason that we particularly protect Christian holidays. That is not so for Islamic holidays". His colleague from Brandenburg, Joerg Schoenbohm (CDU), likewise thinks nothing from the suggestion of the Greens. "This is a land shaped by Christianity", Schoenbohm said. Islamic customs have no meaning in Germany beyond the individual religious confession of the resident Muslims. "A generally obligatory holiday makes not sense at all."
