Stop the British RED Cross banning crimbo so as not to offend muslims
Christmas has been banned by the Red Cross from its 430 fund- raising shops. Staff have been ordered to take down decorations and to remove any other signs of the Christian festival because they could be offensive to Muslims.
(Yes, in fact, Christmas does offend many Muslims but it offends even more people communists on the Left)
UK DAILY MAIL The charity’s politically-correct move triggered anavalanche of criticism and mockery last night – from Christians. Christine Banks, a volunteer at a Red Cross shop in New Romney, Kent, said: ‘We put up a nativity scene in the window and were told to take it out. It seems we can’t have anything that means Christmas. We’re allowed to have some tinsel but that’s it. ‘When we send cards they have to say season’s greetings or best wishes. They must not be linked directly to Christmas. ‘When we asked we were told it is because we must not upset Muslims.’
Mrs Banks added: ‘ We have been instructed that we can’t say anything about Christmas and we certainly can’t have a Christmas tree. ‘ I think the policy is offensive to Muslims as well as to us. No reasonable person can object to Christians celebrating Christmas. But we are not supposed to show any sign of Christianity at all.’
Labour peer Lord Ahmed, one of the country’s most prominent Muslim politicians, said: ‘It is stupid to think all Muslims would be offended. ‘The Muslim community has been talking to Christians for the past 1,400 years.’ He added: ‘In my business all my staff celebrate Christmas and I celebrate with them. It is absolutely not the case that Christmas could damage the Red Cross reputation for neutrality – I think their people have gone a little bit over the top.’
