Right-wing politicians have protested at the inclusion of Islamic symbols in nativity scenes in northern Italy. Elaborate cribs with figurines enacting the nativity decorate most Catholic churches in Italy at this time of year. A priest at a Genoa church put a mosque and minaret in his crib, while a crib at a Venice school also had a mosque. The Genoa branch of the anti-immigrant Northern League reacted with fury. But a senior church figure said there are no firm rules on what can be included. 'Gesture of inclusivity'

"At Our Lady of Divine Providence in Genoa, Father Prospero Bonanzi put a mosque and a minaret in his crib.
"The act of a fool," the local branch of the party called the priest's decision.
"The only thing he missed out was the suicide bomber ready to blow up Christ's manger," was the comment of the Northern League's European deputy Mario Borghezio.
In one Catholic school in Venice the mosque placed in the middle of a Christmas crib produced mixed reactions among pupils and teachers.
But Cardinal Angelo Scola, the Patriarch of Venice, was more cautious in his comment.
There are no rigid rules about what you can and cannot include in the nativity scene, he said.
The imam of Milan, Hamid Shari, said he thought the inclusion of the mosque was a good idea and a gesture of inclusivity.
Italians love to adapt new forms to ancient traditions and there is a new family in many of the Christmas cribs produced in Naples.
America's new President-elect Barack Obama and his wife Michelle figure in many crib scenes being sold there."
political correctness and multiculturalism will be the death of civilization.
Yeah those muslims were haning around in Bethlehem already 6 centuries before there was islam...
They are already surrendering.
And the idea of figurines of The One (piss be upon him) and Aunt Esther in a creche!?
I can only guess at where the figures are placed, can’t you?
this world will come to pass... it is God’s promise and truth.
Cowardice and perfidy from a self-loathing fool. This really disgusts me.
Islam wasn't even invented until the 7th century. A bit of an anachronism, eh?
“Wonder what would happen if Christians started demanding inclusion in Muslim holidays or rituals”
beheading of Christians while yelling Allahu Akbar? seems to be their favorite kind of ritual.
The “good” father should have been taken out of his church, kicking and screaming, literally defrocked (by having his cassock ripped off his body), tied to a tree, and publicly horsewhipped. The subsequent tarring, feathering, and riding out of town on a rail of this individual goes without saying.
There simply is no more time to waste. If supposed representatives of the Church, or politicians, or the Western media, or the Universities, will not defend the Faith and the people and our civilization, we must expel them and find new defenders — or take up the Cross and sword ourselves.
Gosh, that's swell. And there's a cross in Hamid Shari's mosque, isn't there? No?
“A priest at a Genoa church put a mosque and minaret in his crib, while a crib at a Venice school also had a mosque. “
What’s wrong with these idiots? In most Islamic countries a Christian gets threatened for openly practising his/her faith, thrown in jail or deported.
Yet we continue to see moronic westerners pandering to this death cult and its followers.
Western civilization is incrementally commiting mass cultural suicide.
The question is how far are people who are not muslims willing to be pushed by Islam and its appeasers before people push back?
How about we call them right thinking politicians for starters.
The words “inclusivity” and “multiculturism” make my skin crawl every time I hear them, you just know whats coming next.
