Better take down that Christmas Tree

Italian Veterans Group Ordered to Remove Christmas Tree to Avoid 'Offending' Muslims
Last week, a veterans group in the Italian city of Bolzano gave an "athlete of the year" award to Elena Pirrone, world champion of junior cycling. The group set up a Christmas tree for the event. The next morning, the organization's president was woken up by a phone call. He was told to remove the Christmas tree, so as to avoid offending Muslims.

"On Friday morning, the president of the Atesini veterans, Alberto Ferrini, was woken up by a phone call, asking him to remove that tree, because at midday a Muslim association would meet in the hall and that decoration could have offended the sensibility of those present," local paper Alto Adige reported.

Heck. Christians should just turn this around on its head and insist that all NON-Christians stop culturally appropriating Christmas and take down all Christmas decor on their homes and businesses if the owners are NOT Christian. ;)

Considering that the site you linked to is the ONLY PLACE on the net that has ANYTHING to say about this, AND that this site won't display in my browser with NoScript active, AND that you always link to this particular site with some hyperbolic screed or another, immediately labels it as a suspect partisan news site trolling some fake article. Just sayin... :wink:
