It seems that a celebration that teaches mercy and generosity would be a wonderful tool to teach newly arrived immigrants the same attributes. To share with Islamic children the beauty of humanity and caring, through this holiday of lanterns and hope, should be an acceptable practice and not one deemed as inappropriate.
Yet, common sense does not guide the left but rather feelings and they feel that abolishing or renaming this holiday would be a better choice for the new comers, because the citizens of the country don't count, nor does keeping a sixth century tradition matter either.
Primary schools and kindergartens in Germany are abolishing a Christian celebration and changing it into a generic “festival of lights” so as not to offend the hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants pouring into the country.
Several daycare centers in Düsseldorf have abolished the festival altogether out of “consideration for the refugees,” a decision that has prompted fierce criticism from head teachers at other schools in the region.
Leftist German politician, Rüdiger Sagel, believes one should not impose Christianity on Muslims, yet by banning this holiday, Islam is being imposed upon Christians and the German culture.
