Berlin bans Christmas 30.08.2013

In Berlin-Kreuzberg Christmas is now forbidden - at least if it is to be committed in public places. Christmas may only take place at home, so that religious feelings of others are not affected.

 

No April Fools: The district office of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg abolish Christmas. The authorities do not allow Christmas celebrations more in public places or streets. A tree must be placed only in a central, previously assigned by the authorities place - reports the "Berliner Zeitung". 

The festival ban was adopted by Green, left, and pirates. SPD and CDU were supposedly against. responsible Councillor Peter Becker (SPD) answered the protest against the public Christmas prohibition against the BZ as: "Why should religious festivals are celebrated in public" background of the Christmas ban: In August wanted Islams the end of the Ramadan celebrations on the streets of Berlin. 

It was feared because of noise complaints from residents. It made the district office "short work" and banned all the same religious festivals - including Christmas, from "reasons of equal treatment." Also, no so-called honor medals may be distributed to followers of religions. 

So who is Christian faith and has done an outstanding job his district, is based in the future yet. The "medals ban" is of course also for all religions.spite Christmas ban other parties may still take place if they are not religious in nature.Thus, the "Beerfest" "Carnival of Cultures" and various fringe groups festivals are still permitted.

Yes, and that's the point about the fall of Babylon.  I'm sure it will be like a "domino effect" if the world's religion (including Islam) based on unprecidented immigrant communities living in the West and elsewhere, insist that their religious célébrations and considérations should be taken on by the state, the States will not only have to separate religion from Government (already done in most countries) but recognize that religious symbols and célébrations are part of a nearly all "commercially accepted" festivals and have to take positive steps to neutralize this.

 

I'm always surprised here in France in the State school where I teach, where Muslim headscalfs are banned for both teachers and students (as well as any other religious symbols) there's a whacking great big Christmas tree in the Foyer every December.  Obviously the premise is that it has become a commercial (rather than a religious) symbol, but if Ramadam or Yom Kippor was to adopt a symbol that caught on would that too have a place in the schools?
