Norway’s call to remove crosses causes backlash

Norway’s call to remove crosses causes backlash. The Norwegian Government told facilities scheduled to receive asylum seekers, including Christian community centers, to remove crosses, images of Jesus and other religious symbols. Critics said

the decision to ban the display of crosses in a country whose very flag contains the Christian symbol was an embarrassment that is being used on social media “as a prime example of the Norwegian authorities’ genuflection to Islam”.

Asylum seekers and migrants have no reservations in passing the Norwegian border despite the cross in our flag being one of the first things they see.

The Norwegian Government almost immediately backed down and dropped the requirement (this all happened in November 2015). Which goes to show that opposing the PC often works, because they bluff and take what we allow them to take.
