It’s ON in Bavaria.
Bavaria has ordered Christian crosses to be hung at the entrance of all of its regional government buildings, it has emerged.
The German state’s government said the crosses should not be seen as religious symbols, but are meant to reflect the southern state’s ‘cultural identity and Christian-western influence’.
But the move has already drawn a furious reaction from opposition politicians and one prominent cleric accused the regional government of hypocrisy ahead of an election.
The south-eastern state was on the frontline of 2015’s migrant crisis, when over a million people fleeing war and poverty in the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia arrived in Germany, fueling support for the AfD.
Even clerics were critical of the plan. ‘Many see as a provocation and a hypocrisy the way you speak about Christianity,’ wrote Burkhard Hose, a priest who ministers to the students of Wuerzburg University, in an open letter to Soeder.
‘Stop this misuse of Christianity and its symbols as a supposed bulwark against Islam,’ he added.
Oh yeah? Got any better ideas for bulwarks against Islam, then? Or are you good with just rolling over and letting them get on with the conquest and sack?
And to think, some people wonder why Christianity is dying in the West. With weak-kneed, namby-pamby clerics like this to defend, uphold, and preserve the faith, it’s something of a miracle it didn’t fade away altogether years ago. The AfD, referred to as you’d expect in the article as a “far right” party, has a more legitimate gripe about the symbolic move:
But the AfD, which campaigns against Muslim immigration, dismissed the cross proposal as ‘the usual gesture politics’.
‘The Christian Cross is being turned into an election accessory, while the conservatives refuse to protect our basic values with real actions,’ the AfD’s co-leader Alice Weidel said in a statement on Wednesday.
Well, I dunno. “Real actions” are called for sure enough, and long past due. But in Europe as in America, you’ll have to be content with baby steps at first, guys…and just pray it isn’t already too late. PRO TIP: it is.
A Swedish woman in her 40s was brutally raped by an Afghan teenager while another migrant man molested her, a court has heard.
Anwar Hassani and Fardi Hesari, both 18, met the victim outside a hotel bar in Ljungby, southern Sweden, in the early hours of Boxing Day last year.
The victim later told police she took an interest in the teenagers, having been told they were migrants from Afganistan.
She explained that she had been a member of a Facebook group which campaigns against the deportation of migrants from Sweden.
Fucking moron. As Kim says: you’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh hysterically at this story.
