    UK: local council bans Christmas lights for fear of offending Muslims

    Britain's-Rush-to-Dhimmitude Update: "Christmas lights fail to shine in equality zone," from the TimesOnline, with thanks to Romy:

    A COUNCIL is planning to scrap grants for festive lights because Christmas does not fit in with its “core values of equality and diversity”. A report drawn up by the council in Suffolk concedes that the move could lead to officials being accused of “not supporting the spirit of Christmas”.

    The move is the latest in a string of decisions by organisations to downplay the celebration of the birth of Christ — ostensibly to prevent offence being caused to non-Christian religions. Last week it emerged that Lambeth council in south London had insisted on renaming its Christmas lighting displays as “winter” or “celebrity” lights.

    The latest is Conservative-controlled Waveney council in Lowestoft which provides grants totalling ̉ہ ¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚£10 ,000 for festive lights. Its report states that because Christmas focuses only on the Christian faith, continuing the funding would “not fit well with the council’s core values of equality and diversity”.
    This is getting obsurd.... anyone else here live in the UK?
    Even if you don't.... what're your views?

    lol, I'm just curious, maybe I'm short sighted here, but wtf do lights have to do with jesus? and why the hell would you be offended by lights? no one gets offended when muslims wear their traditional drab or practice their holidays. people are too damn sensitive, shit, maybe we should all shave our heads, dye our skin the same color, wear the same outfit, and speak the same language and work 7 days a week with no holidays. am I the only one that wouldn't want to live in a world like that?

    it's not related to jesus, by a christian holiday. Personally, i find these hideous green mosques in our city ugly and offensive, but no, they go and build more.
