Lest Y’all think this is an isolated incident.
And lest Y’all think this has nothing to do with fear of Izlamic fanatics…Think again.

VIENNA, Austria (AP — St. Nick, nein! A ban on St. Nicholas at Vienna’s kindergartens is taking some of the ho-ho-ho out of the holidays for tens of thousands of tots this year. And it’s creating a political ruckus, with opposition parties accusing City Hall of kowtowing to a growing Mus-lim population by showing Europe’s Santa the kindergarten door.
St. Nick Ban Causes Stir in Vienna

“I think it’s for ethnic and cultural reasons,” said Seiler, suggesting it was in deference to Vienna’s Mus–lim population — 400,000 and growing.

Most schools in Vienna do not celebrate Mus–lim holidays, although those with large Mus–lim student populations may opt to observe them.

No Christmas celebrations……..
In deference to the Muzlim population….?

But friends……..There is no war on Christmas…right? xmaswreath.gif

S’ok, theyr’e in good company.

Spanish school cancels Christmas
School reportedly worried about offending non-Christian students

MADRID, Spain – A school in traditionally Catholic Spain has canceled Christmas celebrations so as not to offend children who are not Christians, the ABC newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The Hilarion Gimeno school in Zaragoza said teachers had put forward various reasons for not celebrating Christmas, but ABC said the worry was that Mus–lim children might be upset.

I know you’re thinking that will never happen here.
Don’t make me get out my cloudy crystal ball sweet friends.
Tis a very slippery slope wer’e gliding on.

Manger and hark, even “menorah” displays, happen to be entirely legal. xmaspreani.gif jewishchanukahqq.gif

The U.S. Supreme Court (in the 1980′s) ruled that municipalities could display manger scenes and menorahs in public places alongside secular symbols of the holidays.

It was dubbed the “three reindeer rule” .

“.. holiday displays should reflect government neutrality toward religion, not government hostility. This is the challenge of Christmas present. When there is no room for the central historical figure of the Christmas season in the public square, or a symbol commemorating Hanukkah, the message is unmistakable — people of faith are not welcome here.”

Balancing religion, holidays and the public square
Government-sponsored displays may include religious symbols, so long as the religious symbols do not predominate.

Privately sponsored displays in public forums are even less problematic. In other words, religious symbols in the public square are not constitutional contraband.

So, let’s see now….In “deference” to Muzlims, we no longer celebrate our holidays.

Deference: definition: respectful submission or yielding to the judgment, opinion, will, etc., of another.

Right.
After all one day we will all submit to the will of All-ahhh…so why not get a head start eh?

    Angel, I can’t get all that excited about this one. Christmas is in my heart and yours. But I do see how it interacts on the grid of secular progressiveness pervasive within the formerly-Judeo-Christian world.

    I’m more concerned that we know what a Paris Hilton is.

    How about, in deference to the rest of us, muslims stop promoting or supporting violent terrorism around the world?

    Happy Holidays, whichever ones you’re observing out there blog-land.

    I think we will be very sorry in a few years. This is the definition of dhimmitude.

    This is a big mistake. I’m especially disappointed in the Spanish. They should be the most virulent anti-moslems of us all & yet all I see from them is appeasement. Very sad.

  5. American Crusader says:

    I’m amazed how far we are willing to go to “not offend” non-Christian members of our society. If we are willing to give up our traditions what else are we willing to give up?
    I have yet to see any Islamic countries giving up Ramadan so as to “not offend” non-Muslim citizens.

    This does not surprise or amaze me anymore. This is a not a global attack against religions, though it appears such. It is a global attack against all things God. Eradicate God out of peoples lives know one will have to feel guilty for what they do-no “God” to hold one accountable to a higher standard of excellence.

    Here in the Arlington area–my sons school as others do not say “Merry Christmas” – it is “Happy Winter Holiday”–they do not sing Christmas Carole’s nor do they bring home – homemade Christmas cards. Oh no. When I addressed this with the school board last year I was told that they will no longer embrace anyone’s religious – holiday because it will be offensive to the person who is not of the same persuasion.

    So my next question for them was–that being so, then why do you take a two week break from school to recognize the “winter holidays”. I was then told because it is a federally recognized holiday. That is where I squeezed them and said–well then if the Government recognizes Christmas–”you are going against Federal Law by NOT recognizing it. They shut the hell up!

    But sadly my addressing this issue did not change a thing in the Arlington County Public School system that is so political/socially correct it makes me PUKE!

    It’s the same assault every year… Lawd, this gets exhausting.

    Start offending people, I say!

    After the September 11, 2001 Islamic terror attacks on the United States, a concerted effort on the part of Muslims to enter into civic and political life began. As a result of that effort we now have Minnesota Democrat Keith…

    Show Us Some Respect…

    First of all let’s get something straight. Christmas is not a “Winter Holiday” no matter what some may think or wish. Christmas is the Christian celebration of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, according to the New Testament of the Holy B…

    instead of a SANTA, let’s put up signs which read “LIBERAL BAH-HUM-BUGGY”.

    this year, they all get coal in their stocking…

    ho-ho-ho

    Excellent post, Angel! I’m really amazed at Spain’s buckling under; it’s almost beyond belief! It was always my impression that Christians were not supposed to denounce Christ, but that is exactly what they are doing when the let this type of discrimination take place. Because we are not the sort who run around blowing other people to pieces, we are ignored. Once again, the squeaky wheel gets the grease!

  14. kerwin says:

    I believe the “three reindeer rule” is a an unconstitutional compromise with the unconstitutional interpretation of separation of church and state. The church is a religious organization and the state is a political organization so separation of church as state just means keeping the two organizations separate not keeping politics and religion separate.

    The “no respecting clause” of the First Amendment is obviously meant to stop a church of England or the like from being formed at the federal level. I just do not see displaying a Nativity seen or any other religious symbol as forming a state run religious organization. The idea that the government not being able to “endorse” a religion is absurd when you see the statue of liberty and other religious symbols that have been used by the government in the past.

    I guess the law had nothing better to do there.

  16. kevin says:

    They better get used to it;

    9:29 Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.

    Angel dear, (with tongue firmly in cheek), i think you are not being sensitive to those painfully oppressed moooozies. I have therefore decided to no longer use towels or wear any clothing made of sheep products. I will slightly bow upon any sightings of the two-humped camel..and to show solidarity with my izzylamic brothers i will only shower when absolutely necessary.

    And to my fellow bloggers and bloggets of WomanHonorThyself a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanuka and a joyous new year..

    Ah Christmas!

    Let’s look at what it’s about:

    Capitalists make lots of money.
    People pray a lot.
    Many of Ghia’s trees are cut down.
    It’s really for the children

    No wonder leftists hate it!
