"There is no Christmas concert, because it interferes with other religious cultures present in the institute." This is the decision of a school manager from Terni, who, according to counselor Valeria Alessandrini, would prohibit a Christmas initiative related to the production of live pictures with children and the theme of the birth of Jesus. but not accepted by the school. Minister Matteo Salvini spoke on this case with a message on social networks: "Only for me does this seem to be disgusting idiocy?"
commissioner “Needless to emphasize,” explains Alessandrini, “the frustration and bitterness I felt in studying the news. I hope that in this sense there will be a rethinking, given the respect for those Christian values that are part of our history and our cultural heritage. Respecting those who profess other religions does not mean that we must give up strength in order to recognize our roots. Only by respecting who we were, and therefore who we are, will we be able to make others understand that everyone is free to profess their faith, but must also respect the history and culture of the country in which he lives. I hope that the institute’s children and young people will be allowed to live and share the most beautiful, intense and significant moments of Christmas with their peers and their parents. ”
Answer "The idea of creating a living relationship in our school was just a hypothesis, so the question does not exist." This is the answer that comes from the head of elementary school in the center of Terni, where performance would be prohibited. “But the ban on the word is absolutely inappropriate, and the topic should not be on the agenda for the appraiser. Our school is an example of tolerance, respect, and integration, and it’s enough to open the home page of the educational director’s website to note that the pastoral visit of Bishop Giuseppe Piedmontes. Christmas scenes and Christmas carols are held in all schools of our direction, so respect is complete for all feelings, including religious ones. But not exceeding certain limits and following the basic rules established by the principle of secular school. " Various reactions.
Fd & # 39; I “The position of the main teacher in banning the recitation of children during the upcoming Christmas holidays, so as not to upset other religions, leaves us in bewilderment and horror. The Italian brothers, says coordinator Paolo Alunni Pistoli, fully share the position of Olderman Alessandrini in the hope that he will be able to intervene as soon as possible and restore the fixed points that are the defenders of our Christian roots. ”
Pd However, to be at the crossroads of the group council of the Democratic Party, it was Alessandrini, who helped them to create an “disrespectful and absorbing atmosphere with the aim of causing the climate tension of a long-term campaign to avoid real problems to solve. The controversy, which is now too frequent on school issues, has an opinion, but is not supported by reference rules, starting with DPR 275/99 on the autonomy of the Institutes. “We reject,” says Philiponi and others, “the instrumental and political use of educational and autonomous offer of schools with personal opinions aimed at attracting the attention of the instrumental media.”
Secular civilization Alessandro Chiometti, the president of Civiltà laica, also intervened, talking about "administrators in a permanent election campaign" notes that among "Emunicipal weapons on the verge of bankruptcy; lack of bullying policies in schools; and the city is obliged to a long generation, we can even wish that those who did the election campaign against immigrants, ignoring the words of the pontiff, would have good taste so as not to bring up an "immigrant in a cave" to defend themselves on Christmas, Even this did not spare us, and therefore, Counselor Alessandrini, providing pepper spray for his colleagues, along with the mayor of the crusader Latini, who professed the heir to the liberal Ciaurro, demonstrates his entire reactionary face".
Family people A similar tenor, but the opposite position from ternani del Popolo della famiglia led by Mario Adinolfi: “Motives and justifications are permeated with discourses that are now customary and politically inspired, which resembles the theme of respect and integration. People from the Umbrian family consider it ridiculous and grotesque, who thus tries to promote respect for other confessions in order to avoid unrest or embarrassment, when in fact the process of discrimination is diametrically reversed. This is not about anachronistic crusades, but in respecting the tradition of religion that made Italy great and beautiful, which inspired law, art and politics, while also respecting the inviolable freedom of those who profess themselves as Christians. , Our consideration goes beyond the barren of populism, which only wants to return to the past. ”
