Many Americans, particularly conservatives, have been worried over the increasing Islamification of Western Civilization. Unfortunately it’s a slow process, but by the time the masses begin to notice it, it’s almost too late to stop it. One example of such creeping Sharia is Red Cross’s recent move to remove all crucifixes.
Christianity is the foundation of Western Civilization, whether or not liberals want to admit it. Our culture is founded on Judeo-Christian values such as freedom, honesty, kindness, and liberty—yet somehow, we keep forgetting this, and pandering to other cultures which encourage rape, violence, and even death.
Breitbart reports that Red Cross has just told its branches to remove crucifixes, so as to not offend anyone. In this latest aim to be secular however, they may be isolating the vast majority of their donation base: Christians.
The Belgian branches of the international aid organisation received an email from the Provincial Committee of the Red Cross in Liège to remove all crucifixes. André Rouffart, president of the Red Cross in Verviers, said: “We were asked to respect the principles of the Red Cross”, and not to distinguish between race or religious belief 7sur7 reports.
Mr. Rouffart said there had been pushback from volunteers and other members on the issue but downplayed the issue, saying: “I think it’s a storm in a teacup.”
Several volunteers spoke to Belgian broadcaster RTL and expressed hostility to the move, with one saying: “Let things remain as they are. We used to say ‘Christmas holidays’, now it’s ‘winter holidays’. The Christmas market in Brussels has become the ‘Winter Pleasures’.”
“For a certain part of the population — because of the Muslims — the crosses were removed in the Red Cross houses and, more particularly, in that of Verviers,” the volunteer added.
The order follows the proposed removal of a cross in France which was located above a statue of Saint John Paul II in Ploërmel, Brittany. The move sparked outrage among many and led to the Polish and Hungarian government offering to take the cross.
“Such measures must be regarded as attempts to do away with the continent’s civilisation and culture,” commented Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó.
In Ireland, Catholic priest Father Desmond O’Donnell has called on Christians to abandon the word ‘Christmas’ entirely, saying that the commercialisation of the holiday had replaced the original Christian meaning.
While old Christmas traditions being replaced, others have emerged — including anti-terror barriers wrapped in Christmas wrapping paper and bright red bows in the city of Bochum, Germany, to prevent radical Islamic terror attacks like the Berlin Christmas market massacre of December 2016.
