Dog-Collared Appeasement Monkey Back On Leash!

Excellent news from Cremona, in Italy, where that pusillanimous priest, Sante Braggie, on whom we reported on last week…

Another Damn Dog-Collared Appeasement Monkey! 

… has been slapped down – by his own diocese, after uproar over the cancellation of the church’s Nativity Scene.

…the diocese countermanded him, the municipality offered to help, and the work had already begun.

According to the vicar general of the Cremona diocese, Sante Braggie’s words were “falsely attributed” and the Nativity scene was to be installed.


Not sure what ‘falsely attributed’ is supposed to mean. Is an embarrassed hierarchy trying to tell us the act of appeasement was misreported?

Seems unlikely, because people in the vicinity who ought to know were taking it very seriously indeed. 

The turbulent cleric was on the receiving end of a brilliant rebuttal from the Lombardy Region’s Culture Minister, the rather nifty Cristina Cappellini…

…who urged Fr. Sante Braggiè to “make a mea culpa … and apologize to the community.”

She summed up what were clearly the feelings of normal people, not only in Italy but all over the world, with these very stirring words

“Reconsider,” she urged the priest, “think of all those Christian children still under the yoke of the Islamic State or under regimes practicing state atheism or not guaranteeing freedom of worship…

“Think about those families and those children who are not allowed to make the crib…those people for whom wearing a cross means signing their own death sentence, often after torture and abuses of all kinds.




  • Think about the Christian cemeteries being desecrated in the Middle East, as happened just a few days ago in the Galilee, due to religious intolerance that destroys us in our humanity if we show ourselves weak and subject to those who reject our civilization.”  


  • Well said, Signorina!
  • And let’s hope we have heard the last of this sort of grovelling.
  • But don’t hold yer breath! .
