Did the Islam-pandering Pope Francis think this one up? The crosses on graves in an Italian cemetery in Pieve di Cento have been covered with black cloth so as not to offend those who may come from another religion. (No, NOT just any other religion, only Islam)
Breitbart The cemetery, which is located in Bologna in a town of around 7,000 people, has also installed motorised 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.”
JihadWatch This absurd disregard for Christians and rejection of Italy’s Christian heritage does not constitute tolerance of people of other faiths. The Christian cemetery management is enabling Islamic supremacists. Adherents of no other religion have shown hostility toward crosses and the Christian faith in the West.
Nor is this the first time this has happened. Take for example, the fact that in 2016, “the-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi had statues at the Capitoline Museum covered entirely so as not to offend Iranian President Hassam Rouhani who had come to Italy on a state visit. The move was met with widespread derision from the public on social media,” and it should have, and as should the cemetery’s decision to cover crosses.
Also noted in the article below is the fact that in Italy, there is currently a selling-off of Christian property to Muslim organizations.
Fortunately, Italy has a leader who, although widely demonized by globalists for resisting the Islamization of Italy, is persistent in protecting the Christian roots of his country.
Last year, Matteo Salvini’s League party “introduced a bill in the Italian parliament requiring crucifixes in all public buildings.” Salvini said, “To me the crucifix is the symbol of our history, culture and traditions. “I can’t see why it would bother anyone when displayed in our classrooms. “Actually, it could help reflect on our history.”
A close adviser to Pope Francis has strongly condemned the proposal to make it obligatory for crucifixes to be displayed in all public spaces, including ports, schools, embassies and prisons. The bill would include fines of up to €1,000 (£890) for failing to comply.
