Christmas Sidelined at German School After Muslim Complains Over Carols

A 600-year-old school in Germany has ditched Christmas celebrations during class time after a Muslim pupil said that carols were incompatible with Islam.

After a stir in local media over reports that the Johanneum Gymnasium in Lüneburg had “cancelled” Christmas following a Muslim girl’s complaint that the songs conflicted with her religion, the school’s headmaster said that the school was taking “a sensitive approach” to the festive season.

    From the original article : ” . . . it would not be right to have an event “for Christians that excludes other religions. ” But it’s acceptable to pretty much cancel Christmas celebrations for all Christians on the strength of a complaint by ONE muslim student. Tolerance is always a one way street.

      I’ve never excluded any other religious believers from my celebrations of the season. However there does seem to be two groups that throw a fit when I invite them to partake; Atheists and Muslims.

      Everybody forgets that the Germans have surrendered just as often as the French have.

    Yep ONE frigging muslim. AND the school folded like an old tent. When will someone..Anyone in charge have the fortitude to stand up and say ” WE ARE NOT GOING TO TAKE IT ANYMORE”…..I’m assuming not all muslims care whether others sing carols or celebrate CHRISTMAS. After all THEY enjoy the days off work and/or school. They don’t complain about this. Nope. These idiots burn Christmas trees, arrive and drown out people trying to enjoy Christmas carols and generally act like the thugs and knuckle dragging goons they are.

    I wonder if there will be Christmas Carols sung in Ottawa, on Parliament Hill this Year with stupid in charge?

      Don’t forget ‘O Tannenbaum’…
      O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum

      Wie treu sind deine Blätter

      Du grünst nicht nur zur Sommerzeit,

      Nein, auch im Winter, wenn es schneit.

      O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,

      Wie treu sind deine Blätter.4

      O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,

      Du kannst mir sehr gefallen.

      Wie oft hat nicht zur Weihnachtszeit

      Ein Baum von dir mich hoch erfreut.

      O Tannenbaum, o Tannenbaum,

      Du kannst mir sehr gefallen.
