ITALY, December 3, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) Amid what Italian media is describing as open war on school nativity scenes, Italys Education Ministry has slapped back, granting approval to installing crucifixes and reinstating nativity scenes in the nations classrooms.
The crucifix is for me the symbol of our history, our culture, our traditions, said Education Minister Marco Bussetti, speaking to the Federation of Catholic Schools annual congress in Rome. I don't see how it can cause any irritation in our school rooms, on the contrary it may help kids to reflect on our history.
Bussetti is not alone.
When a school in the city of Terni, northeast of Rome, cancelled its traditional nativity play in order to respect children from other cultures, Italys Interior Minister Matteo Salvini slammed the measure as IDIOCY, according to a Voice of Europe report.
"It is not just about religion, said Salvini on Facebook, but about history, roots, culture. I will not give up.
Long live our traditions, and may they spread! he added.
A representative of the populist Lega Party, Valeria Alessandrini, first brought the situation at the school in Terni to the attention of Italians, saying:
Only by respecting (our own traditions) can we make others understand everyone is free to practice their own faiths but that it is also required they respect the history and culture of the country in which they live.
I hope that children and young people at the school will be allowed to share with their peers and their parents the most beautiful, intense and meaningful moments of Christmas.

Are the Dems going to be wanting to follow Europe on this?
Yes, Italy! Be strong. Be loud and proud about your culture.
Don’t fold up like a wet noodle at the first voiced objection. Italy has primarily been a Christian Nation for centuries.
Good to see some common sense breaking out, at least in Italy.
Makes me proud of my Italian family in Genoa, and the entire bloodline from the mainland to America. And from today’s article about Ireland allowing abortions for girls under 16, I’m proud not to be a mick.
How come we dont do this here? Are the faggots finally going to burn in place?
If my memory is right it was Saint Francis of Assisi who popularized the Nativity scene.
Good for Italy! I just read a post on “the yid with lid” about a school in Manchester Nebraska that’s banning candy canes and Christmas trees, all in the name of ‘diversity’. I called and left a message to the left wing principal, Jennifer Sinclair. The number of the school is 1-402-289-2590.
Sanity on display in Italy.
Great news! Now follow through!
Nowadays, almost every unwanted societal change is quickly tied to
Conservatives spend a lot of time arguing about issues that they never expected to become controversial. White Privilege,
, Bathrooms, Transgenderism in schools and workplaces, Border Free attitudes promoted in schools. Free Health Care, Censored Speech. It may take another 10 years for conservatives to regroup and find legal means to reverse the tide of liberal thinking. If that can be done.
I think I am going to move to Italy.
My guess is no.
Then there’s the 16 year olds in Ireland. Abortion w/o parental consent.
Pepole everywhere are wising up
Except for Ireland.
