BOLOGNA - Controversy in Casalecchio di Reno, a town of 36,000 inhabitants on the outskirts of Bologna, after the decision of the municipal council not to place a cross to indicate the new entrance to the municipal cemetery. "The decision of the mayor to prohibit a cross at the cemetery entrance of Casalecchio is creating rage and sadness," says a representative of the Democrats, Fabrizio Nofori, provincial spokesman of the Brothers of Italy - National Alliance, in a note: "since when is the cross offensive to other religions?". In any case, continues the representative of the centre-right party, "If the PD [Partito Democratico, left-wing party currently in power in Italy] covers up the statues in the Capitoline museum to avoid offending the Iranian president Rohani, without anyone having asked them to do it, we should expect nothing else than for them to sell out our deepest cultural roots."


  1. Why is it perfectly acceptable to go out of one's way to avoid offending the "religion of peace", with no consideration for any others?

  2. FELL THE BERN? . . .
