Brugge (Bruges), in Flemish Belgium, is one of the most beautifully preserved medieval towns in Europe. The place with its magnificent Gothic buildings oozes Christian Europe. It is a must visit for anyone touring the Low Countries. While the visitor can wander around the town centre, silenced by the architectural beauty and the history it breathes, the town’s custodians act as if their cultural eyes have been ripped out.
The spinelss organisers of the Christmas market in Brugge, Belgium, have caved in to multiculturalism. They’ve changed the name from kerstmarkt (Christmas Market) to Wintermarkt (Winter Market). Their excuse is that ‘Christmas’ is offensive to other faiths. We all recognise that for the snivelling excuse that is. We all know which faith Brugge’s organisers are grovelling in front of.
What a disturbing thing it is to witness the actions of those culturally gutted.
