The reactions to Annette Widmann-Mauz : the indignation of The Once-a-year Christians

Shortly before Christmas, the Republic is still a small culture war. The occasion, the integration Commissioner of the Federal government, Annette Widmann-Mauz (CDU), the Battle of the "image"newspaper has opened. Widmann-Mauz had sent a Christmas card on – hold – really! the! Word! Christmas! was missing!!! The integration officer will wish only "a contemplative time and a good Start into the new year". "Integration agent creates Christmas," Hyper-ventilated "image". On Twitter Widmann-Mauz pushed in a hurry, a "Merry Christmas", but there was, pardon me, the Roast of course burn and the Twitter-Front formed: a misunderstood tolerance, and to this Union nothing is more Christian, a bloater in front of the own values, #fail, #embarrassed, #unacceptable, so the unanimous verdict.

The Commissioner for integration and migration the word Christmas avoids. This is a greeting to the German reality

Only a little more than half of the 80 million Germans were 2017 a member of a Christian Church. Every year a few hundred thousand from a kick and a few hundred thousand. Overall, due to the demographic change, shows the curve to the bottom. Undenominational, around 31 million Germans are today. With the people of other religions, you will probably be in the foreseeable future in the majority. The Christmas card without Christmas is a greeting to the German reality, nothing more.

Psychically, the many are not able to cope with but apparently. The less religious one is able to feel itself, the greater the need for things around a little bit Christian, also in the Chancellor's office, pretty please. Now that the days are dark, but anyway, like all years, is torn between religion, desire, and consumerism, quite touched by the his own interiority inability. On Monday, she will then flow back into the churches, including the Once-Christian people of this Republic (the author) and googling in the last row, the Text of "Oh, du fröhliche". As everything comes together: Tendons, shame, guilt, failure.

The Germans are religiously unsettled and tap therefore leitkulturelle reminders in your phone

to prepare For this emotionally harrowing Moment you complained of taps, therefore now mulled wine fahsnickered and shopping bag-eindäumig a few leitkulturelle reminders to the Commissioner for integration and migration into the new Iphone (that you unpacked before, because You need it to be). This George Michael whamt. It's a Mini-Shitstorm and is, in a sense, a surrogate, a Tweet has become Erbaulichkeit, a collective act of self-reassurance. And Best of all Costs nothing.
