Saint Martin’s Christian Festival Abolished Out of “Consideration for the Muslim Refugees”


These migrants are coming to our countries from failed, devastated cultures. When and why was it decided that we have to mute and censor our traditions and mores for theirs — a failed society that suffocates and destroys?

They are running from devastation and failure; why adopt that?

Consideration for Refugees: Saint Martin’s festival is to be renamed “Festival of Lights”

Epoch Times, Saturday, 31 October 2015 14:01

Want to facilitate the “integration of refugees” some daycare supervisor rename the Saint Martin’s processions in “Festival of Lights.” Others reject such a proposal strictly.

In Dusseldorf several daycare want on the Saint Martin’s hard without. The decision to abolish the Christian festival should be taken out of “consideration for the refugee.”

But the seemingly considerate gesture met with fierce criticism: “…Especially our Muslim parents appreciate the traditional lore you want Martin trains organize and St. celebrate Martin it will stay,” said a director of the primary school sun road, in an interview with the Rheinische Post.

There are kindergartens and schools that want to rename the Saint Martin’s processions in “Festival of Lights.”

But other daycare centers require to maintain the tradition of the St. Martin’s feast. The manager of a Düsseldorf Kita said, “We celebrate St. Martin and no light festival wanted the parents’ council as well…”

This is not the responsibility of the head of the Düsseldorf Don Bosco-Montessori School, Nanette Weidelt. She said that the renaming was necessary “to facilitate the integration.”

The dispute over the Saint Martin’s festival has been around for some time. The left-politician Rüdiger Sagel struck two years ago before even St. Martin abolish. The festival should but will instead be renamed to “sun, moon and stars” -Fest said Sagel says “RP.” Such changes should be made because there are different religions, in particular a high proportion of Muslim children in the day care centers. “You should not impose the Christian tradition,” Sagel said at the time.
