PC madness: Italian cemetery covers crosses to avoid offending Muslims
By News Editors // Apr 13, 2019

Despite the long-standing prevalence of Catholicism in Italy, it seems the culture may be succumbing to anti-Christian political correctness as a Catholic cemetery near Bologna has selected to cover crosses on graves to avoid offending those who may practice other religions.

Breitbart News reports that the cemetery, located in Pieve di Cento, will not only cover crosses on graves in black cloths, but will also be using motorized blackout curtains to hide Roman Catholic symbols during burial ceremonies involving other denominations.

Pieve di Cento is a small town just north of Bologna that is home to approximately 7,000 residents. The area reportedly has a small but growing Muslim population, though nine out of 10 residents continue to call themselves Catholics.

Why, then, does an entire population have to be offended to appease a small minority of people?

That is the very criticism posited by Giorgia Meloni, Brothers of Italy leader, Russia Today reports.

“With the excuse of respect for others, they lack respect for our Catholic culture and our traditions,” she said. “Now the Left is beyond fanaticism. This is ideological delirium.”

The move has also prompted criticism from Galeazzo Bignami, deputy of Forward Italy, a center-right policy party in Italy. Bignami contends that covering the symbols of Catholicism is disrespectful and not only offends the Church but the “memory of our dead” by “hiding them behind ‘motorized tents’ in a cemetery to avoid offending other religions.”
