We are glad to see the Cathedral take a position on this: Germany's Cologne Cathedral To Turn Off Lights In Protest At Anti-Muslim March.
BERLIN, Jan 2 (Reuters) - One of Germany's most famous landmarks, Cologne Cathedral, will be plunged into darkness on Monday evening in protest at a march by a growing grass-roots anti-Muslim movement through the western German city, cathedral authorities said.
Germany’s government has also taken notice:
The rise of the group, Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA), has shaken Germany's political establishment, prompting Chancellor Angela Merkel to say in her New Year address that its leaders were racists full of hatred and citizens should beware being used.
Anti-muslim racism/bigotry has NO PLACE IN CIVIL SOCIETY. Good people everywhere must speak out against these dangerous forces and support our Muslim Sisters and Brothers.
