Crosses and other Christian symbols have been publicly displayed in the West for centuries; no religious minorities objected in the slightest. Now, all of a sudden, in a staggering coincidence, millions of hate-filled liberal lefties think that the cross is offending everyone!
And it seems that the left in Europe is very similar to our Democrats!
The crosses on graves in an Italian cemetery have been covered up to avoid offending those from other religions.
The sheets went up during renovations taking place at the chapel, in case any workers of different faiths were offended.
According to Giorgia Meloni the leader of the Conservative-populist Brothers of Italy party (FDI), “Using the excuse of respect for others, they lack respect for our Catholic culture and our traditions. Now the Left is beyond fanaticism. This is ideological delirium.”
Breitbart reports: The cemetery, which is located in Bologna in a town of around 7,000 people, has also installed motorized blackout curtains in a local chapel following renovations to hide Roman Catholic symbols during ceremonies involving other denominations, Il Giornale reports.
Following the reports of the coverings of the symbols, many have expressed criticism including Forza Italia (Forward Italy) deputy Galeazzo Bignami who denounced the move saying those looking not to offend were disrespecting Christian values and he added, “even more so the memory of our dead, hiding them behind ‘motorised tents’ in a cemetery to avoid offending other religions.”
“If the administrators are ashamed of our tradition and our culture, they should go and hide themselves and not just behind a motorized tent. If they are not able to bring respect for the living at least they have the decency to leave the dead alone and not involve them in foolishness,” he added.
“Tolerance” and its associated virtues can only be extended by “something”. These things do not emerge from a vacuum or arise from an empty space. They are, instead, characteristics of an “entity” or a “presence” – such as Christianity or of Italian (in this case) culture as animated or inspired by Christianity.
Deny that “entity” and there can be no “tolerance” for there is nothing to “be” tolerant. What’s left when you remove or deny it is not “tolerance” or an aversion to causing offense (much the same thing), but a wasteland of renunciation and potential nihilism that offers nothing except license and uninhibited, destructive permissiveness. A desolate badland.
The cross-concealers or maskers of the crucifix that cover up or stifle the Christian well-spring of tolerance are treading a very dangerous – and deluded – path indeed.
