Merry Christmas Everyone!
Germany: 600-year-old School Ditches Christmas After Muslim Complains About Carols
Headmaster Friedrich Suhr confirmed that the complaint had taken place, but denied it was behind the decision of management at the school — one of the oldest in northern Germany — to postpone and make voluntary its annual Christmas party.
The headmaster also explained that that music lessons at the school would no longer include songs with religiously-themed lyrics, pointing to regional education board rules which require teachers show consideration to pupils from minority faiths.
Global Muslim Brotherhood Meets to Plan Future Strategy
Even though the terror organization Hamas allegedly separated from the Brotherhood, it will be represented at the three-day meeting by group’s top official in Lebanon, Osama Hamdan, a well-known member of Hamas’ politburo.
Turkey will also send representatives from President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (the AKP).
Other Muslim Brotherhood political parties and organizations will attend from Kuwait, Tunisia, Algeria, Libya, Morocco, Mali, Senegal and other locations in Africa.
It’s Time For A Canadian Patriotic Movement
The ongoing failure of the global elites – who Justin Trudeau so willingly serves at our expense– opens up a possibility for a challenge to the status quo in Canada. We have the opportunity for a new Canadian Patriotic Movement to reshape the entire political landscape.
This movement would be focused on returning Canada back to the Canadian people, and empowering individuals, families, and local communities.
The Conservatives are the party best positioned to seize that opportunity, but doing so will require a different way of thinking.
To both regain power and use it effectively, the Conservatives cannot simply offer to tinker around the edges of the economy and government. Big changes are required.
Pope says Christianity demands respect for immigrants, compares them to Mary and Joseph
Pope Francis strongly defended immigrants at his Christmas Eve Mass on Sunday, comparing them to Mary and Joseph finding no place to stay in Bethlehem and saying faith demands that foreigners be welcomed.
Francis, celebrating his fifth Christmas as leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, led a solemn Mass for about 10,000 people in St. Peter’s Basilica while many others followed the service from the square outside.
Security was stepped up, with participants checked as they approached St. Peter’s Square even before going through metal detectors to enter the basilica. The square had been cleared out hours earlier so security procedures could be put in place.
Justin Trudeau’s Christmas message to Canadians emphasizes strength in diversity
In his statement released Sunday, a day before Christmas Day, Trudeau also encouraged Canadians to build on the country’s 150th birthday celebrations in 2017 by continuing to make a difference in 2018.
“In 2017, people across Canada gave us much reason to be proud, and showed us the strength in our diversity. Canadians are neighbours helping neighbours, sharing warmth, compassion, and generosity — not just at Christmas, but year round.
