Brussels replaced its popular Christmas tree exhibit this year at the city center due to concerns that it may offend the local Muslim population. The Right Perspective reported: Government officials in Brussels, Belgium banned Wednesday a popular Christmas tree exhibit out of concerns that the local Muslim population found it “offensive." An “electronic winter tree,” will take the place of the traditional Christmas Tree and Nativity scene at the city center of Grand Place, reports Brussels News. The electronic sculpture will stand 25 meters (82 feet) tall and consists of a set of television screens,

The illusion of "Christian Europe" is dying. The substance of "Christian Europe" died long ago. Going with a cowardly whimper into that "Good Night", without protest or perhaps even recognition of what is happening.

Why would they be offended? If they don´t want to participate in the Christmas holidays, then don´t. But to expect the Christian people to give up their celebration is not acceptable. Why do governments & organizations give in to such nonsense, doesn´t make any sense.......unless they are trying to take over the world. Hmmm ya reckon that might be it, with the blessing of people in power all over the world? Politially correctness is going to destroy us all.

Tough. You do not have the right to go through life and never been offended. I suggest that everyone start carrying bags of crispy, mouth watering bacon. Whenever them come within a muslim take out a strip and chow down right in front of them.

The Belgian King takes the following oath: “I swear to observe the Constitution and the laws of the Belgian people, to preserve the
country’s national independence and its territorial integrity”.

Notice anything missing? Belgium is a secular nation that happens to have been largely Catholic.

Back in the day (1977-1979) I used to be a flight attendant and we went to Brussels four times a month. Loved the city. At Christmas the most beautiful site was the tree lit up in the Square. They had live animals in the manger as well . Traditional and beautiful. I cannot tell you how sad this makes me feel. It can only be a matter of time before Germany falls to the same nonsense. What a bunch of weak -kneed milk toast cowards they are to give in to this . They are breeding and we are not. Simple as that.

Blame it on the Muslims, but this sort of thing has been happening for decades (even in my area) where Muslims are not a factor. Just fill in your favorite non-Christian group. And in the Turnabout-is-Fair-Play department - our local Evangelicals have gotten the school Halloween Carnival banned. It has been reincarnated as ´Fall Festival´ although no one bothers to dress up as say, a pilgrim.

I´d say in the case of Brussels it is the likely product of an unholy (and not unusual) alliance of Muslims and Post Christians (aka Atheists).

Are there mosques there? If so, perhaps they offend 75% of the residents? Using their reasoning, ban the mosques.

The religion of darkness is offended by the festive themes of family, goodwill, giving, music, compassion, lights and beauty.
Name a holiday those sick cretins celebrate that is anything even remotely close to love, goodwill toward men and peace on Earth.
It don´t exist! They wait around for some imam to come crawling out of a well in fire and destruction and virgins that look like Helen Thomas!

Posters seem to NOT understand that when Muzzies are offended WE must change.

Just watch how The Won operates.
Now that he is reelected we have the DemoRats telling us Conservatives must change.

There are already places where Sharia law is considered lawful at the local level.

Within the next four years Christianity will fade in the EU and America is next.

Good time to stock up on ammo for the next civil/religious war.

Brussels turning into an Islamic cave?Business in this area has suffered by refusing to celebrate Christmas. I stopped shopping at all stores which went anti-tradition and anti-tree.
.... No Muslim is going to tell me what traditioins I will be allowed to practice in the country of my birth. I buy no ´Holiday´ cards. My greetings all say ´Merry Christmas.´ I play only ´Christmas´ music in December, and I no longer attend local song-fests which ´forbid´ the mention of Holy Night, Christ, Manger, Three Kings and Bethlehem.

The whole world is preparing for the anti-Christ! We Christians must stand up and be counted! Jesus will return again for His own, then the world will be as it was before Jesus first came. His mission was to save us and was rejected by many back then even. Today we see the rise of Islam and they will be involved in the final battle where Jesus will prove His authority over the world He created. Satan is defeated!

Persecution has been suffered throughout the world for centuries, but now it is coming to the cities/towns/nations that once held up God´s Word and sent missionaries to the lost and now find themselves overcome too by Satan.

The governments have sought control and the anti-Christ will take over and determine who will live and who will die.

In this country we are also disregarding the Christ of Christmas and only seek the commercial advantage of gift giving. Jesus was/is the Perfect Gift, freely given, and forever present in those who "choose" to believe and then receive His Love/Grace eternally.

Pray for US and the world. Our children/grandchildren deserve better than what we are giving or leaving them.

Christians forgive - Muslims murder those who do not believe. There is no forgiveness in their religion. Jesus saves - Mohammed condemns.

A Nebraska toddler had his eye on the prize when he slipped out of his home and wound up inside a claw machine at a nearby arcade. Ashley Ireland had called police and begun a frantic search for her son, Kael, after he went missing from her apartment on Monday afternoon. The three-year-old had managed to open the front door and walk to the nearby amusement arcade, where he was found playing with stuffed toys inside one of the machines.

KUALA LUMPUR: A CREW member of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 made a desperate call from his mobile phone as the plane was flying low near Penang, the morning it went missing. The latest breakthrough in the ongoing criminal investigation traced the source of the call to co-pilot Fariq Abdul Hamid´s phone.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

LAS VEGAS -- The Bureau of Land Management has announced it will stop the roundup of cattle owned by rancher Cliven Bundy. The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as
