    Crib Wars: Beaumount Hospital refuses a traditional symbol of Christmas

    Beaumount Hospital - which is one of Dublin’s main hospitals - has removed the traditional Christmas crib from both its reception area and wards, upsetting patients and staff.

    However, the decision by bosses at Beaumont Hospital has prompted such a backlash that many staff are now signing a petition to have the festive nativity scene restored.

    When asked about its decision, a spokesman said "the wider hospital community is multicultural and therefore multifaith". The conclusion to this is that the hospital should celebrate numerous faiths. However, the hospital seems to be interpreting the term "multifaith" as meaning "no faith".


    Irish Times: ‘Save crib’ petition at Beaumont Hospital gathers 1,000 signatures


    NB. DESPITE THE COMMENTS OF POSTERS BELOW, THERE'S NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS MOVE HAS BEEN REQUESTED BY MUSLIMS OR MEMBERS OF OTHER NON-CHRISTIAN FAITHS.

    Don't upset the towelheads.

    This is being done to placate a tiny tiny minority of non Christians.

    Shame on Beaumont and it's so called management.

    I always thought it was a low grade hospital and this merely reinforces my view.

    More proof that the HSE has too many "hospital bosses" with nothing to do.

    Even the humanist movement has come out against the fookwit libertard nonsense!

    The municipal court in France has found that public cribs in France (a proud secular state, by any definition) are a cultural tradition at this time of year and not primarily a means of religious expression being force on others!

    TBH it's par for the course, we are seriously overpaying and overperking a shyteload of well connected imbecile administrators in our public/civil service!
    They must have absolutely nothing to do with their time, if they are dreaming this up and putting this absolute nonsense forward! All at our expense!

    Very unfair to the majority population who are Christian and who celebrate Christmas.
    How far do we have to bend over for these minorities?

    FFS, let's cancel Christmas altogether in case we might offend someone.

    This is particularly unfair to older people for whom religious symbols often have a stronger resonance as they reach the end of their lives.
