Germans Debate Muslim Public Holidays

“We have a Judeo-Christian religious character, not an Islamic one. Therefore, I do not understand why we are even having this debate. Instead, we should discuss something else: When will Christians in all Islamic countries have the same religious freedom as Muslims have here?” — Wolfgang Bosbach, a senior member of the CDU party.

    Besides making Islamic holidays statutory holidays, as long as there is a large Muslim population it is probably necessary to remove all the Christian and any Jewish holidays so as not to offend them.

    Wow,Wolfgang Bosbach actually thought about things in a cogent way. I’m shocked! He must be aware that the reverse (Muslims allowing public Christian celebration) is not true in Muslim dominated countries and that anyone not Muslim is persecuted and under threat of death at any time.

    Mandatory Ramadan under pain of death, of course.

    why even debate it? thats admitting there is a point worth debating. How about let the German people decide if they want to reject the enlightenment and renter the dark ages.

      This is Germany, and the voters are not trusted to have any effect on anything important. The elites in the EU in Brussels make all the rules, and the voters are deliberately kept in the dark so they remain pacified and unable to make sound decisions based on facts.

    Fake news:
    Wolfgang Bosbach: “We have a Judeo-Christian religious character, not an Islamic one.”
    Merkel: “Hahahahaha! I’m fixing that you stupid Kraut. You are even too stupid to see my plan unfold around you.”

    This debate will no doubtably be brought up in Canada. If people want to take time off from work to observe cultural/religious holidays not officially recognized by the government than they can book a vacation day. I for one do not want to be forced to take time off work paid/unpaid to “celebrate” a holiday that I do not believe in or is not indigenous to the host culture and nation.
