    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! .

      I was reading through your postings today and of course you hit the nail on the head about how much better it is that Amri’s dead and not taken prisoner. If he was put on trial in Germany, the judges there are so spineless he would probably have got life then paroled after twenty years.
      It’s only a pity his death wasn’t more painful.
      But I am commenting on this Nativity Scene story, because the latest place to wilt in the face of ‘offence’ is in Belgium.
      Such pitiful little sprouts, I wouldn’t have these Holenbeek councillors on my dinner plate the day after tomorrow.

    Another Damn Dog-Collared Appeasement Monkey! 

    Only this week, I dug out my artificial Christmas Tree- living in Jakarta is not like my boyhood days in Perth County, Ontario, when we’d walk a little ways from the farm-house and cut one down!


    Being in Indonesia, I often have Muslim guests and they are not in the least ‘offended’ by my modest festive decorations.

    On the contrary, they like the way my home is cheerier at this time of year! And I’m cheerier too.

    Until I read the news from Italy…

    It’s really quite hard not to pour scorn on the pathetic and pusillanimous priest who is so eager not to ‘offend’ that he has cut back on the celebration of Christ’s Nativity at his church in Cremona, in Italy.

    Let’s just say I am sick and tired of pinko pukes of all denominations, all parties and all nationalities who bleat about how one must never ‘offend’ ethnic or religious or ‘gender’ minorities, yet who simultaneously, sedulously, go out of their way to offend US!

    And by ‘us,’ I include all the Christian Italians in Cremona for whom a priggish clown, ‘Father’ Sante Braggie, has shown utter contempt, OFFENDING even the priest who previously ministered to the same congregation….

    “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.” Braggie’s predecessorFather Oreste Mori

    ….by cancelling Christmas, or at least an integral part of the Christmas Season…

    …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….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.       


    Hey, Sante, your duties are located in a church, right?

    The church is obviously visible to people of all creeds and of none, right?

    Shouldn’t you demolish it, lest non-believers get all ‘offended’ if their business or social activities require them to be within sight of such an ‘offensively’ Christian structure?

    But that would be unfair on the genuine Christians who are not embarrassed by their faith, right?

    So a better idea, then.

    Just remove your priestly collar, which you disgrace every time you put it on, and…

      As ever, you express what so many of us feel when we hear that ‘offended’ word, and as you also note, it’s not even those said to be in danger of being ‘offended’ that make an issue of it,
      How many ‘Muslims, Indians or atheists’ complained, or would complain?
      I’d suggest as many of your heterogeneous house-guests as complain about your Xmas tree, in other words, none.
      This priest should be unfrocked, because he is more interested in political correctness than preaching the Gospel.

      Good one, Ross.

      Altogether too much carry-on and touchiness about religion here and in Cremona. If people dont like what they see or hear, they shouldnt look or listen.
