Fr Sante Braggiè, from the city of Cremona in northern Italy, said there would be no nativity scene at the local cemetery this year as it could offend people from other faiths whose relatives are buried there.Fr Braggiè said: “A small corner of the cemetery is reserved for Muslim graves.“A crib positioned within sight of them could be seen as a lack of respect for followers of other faiths, hurt the sensibilities of Muslims, as well as Indians and even atheists.
“In short, it would be a mess.”The priest also said that there were a shortage of council workers to set up the crib.Fr Oreste Mori, Fr Braggiè’s predecessor, said: “Seriously? I can’t believe it.”
According to a report in the Italian newspaper Courier della Serra, he said: “We cannot renounce our culture and traditions.“That would be an unpardonable weakness.”“I am, for the time being at least, in Italy, not Saudi Arabia.”
Local councillors have also blasted the priest’s comments, calling on the religious leader to change his mind and run the nativity.Councillor Cristina Cappellini said: “I hope Fr Braggiè changes his mind and apologises to the community.“A parish priest should preserve, honour and promote the symbols of our culture, of our traditions, of our Christian identity.”

“A small corner of the cemetery is reserved for Muslim graves.”

  1. Sounds to me like this priest should be more worried about setting up a crypt than a crib! Any priest or Christian minister who is afraid to set up a Nativity Scene out of fear of muslims, is DEAD IN THE WATER!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
