Living in fear?

Christmas BANNED from being mentioned on menu over fears it would offend Muslims

A function held at the Austrian embassy in Germany still served traditional festive fare such as Lebkuchen but rebranded them as 'winter delicacies'.

The event was a presentation by the Chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, Aiman Mazyek, who has written the book What Do Muslims Do at Christmas?: Islamic Faith in Everyday Life in Germany.

The invitation to guests, from ambassador Nikolaus Marschik, was described as a “cosy get-together with winter delicacies.”

A reporter attending the event wanted to know exactly what the Austrians suddenly considered "winter delicacies" and asked the embassy for a clarification.

The ambassador then admitted that the traditional Christmas foods had been rebranded out of respect for Islam.

The Austrian embassy said the description was meant to include Lebkuchen, the local name for gingerbread usually served at Christmas, as well as Kipferln, a type of croissant, and beer and wine, and that the term had been chosen out of consideration for Islam.

Journalist Gunnar Schupelius said: "It is advent season, we are on the territory of the Austrian Republic, they invite Christians and Muslims for a talk about Christmas and offer Christmas delicacies that cannot be called Christmas delicacies."

He said: "I have talked to the people in question and made sure that it will not happen again. Of course we adhere to our Christmas traditions. This is why our events include Christmas biscuits and other delicacies."

Winter delicacies ? :wtf:

Fear of being offensive ? Too liberal ? I don't think muslims are not sensible when it comes their religious beliefs and customs esp when it is food related (halal for example) why should Christians live in fear of seen offensive for their single most important religious festival of the year? Too much liberal bias make me puke though I am not Christian!!! :wtf:

For some reason the "liberals" have something against Christianity.
For brevity lets just call them marxists.

Here is one such "KING" of liberals in an idiotic statement of the year.

Prince Charles makes Christmas about migrants, and Islamic conquest. In a jaw dropping Christmas message, Prince Charles, first in line to the throne of England, has made a propaganda video attempting to turn Christmas into a need to accept more Muslim migrants.

On social media the message "long live the queen" used sarcastically so that this fella won't get to be the king of England. ROFL.

What a constraint to this royal her grace.
