Spain has been beaten down into submission.
Spain: The pace seems to have accelerated under socialist rule over the last couple of years.
|MADRID (Reuters) - A school in traditionally Catholic Spain has cancelled Christmas celebrations so as not to offend children who are not Christians, ABC newspaper reported on Wednesday. The Hilarion Gimeno school in Zaragoza said teachers had put forward various reasons for not celebrating Christmas, but ABC said the worry was that Muslim children might be upset. The school will not put on a nativity play or hand out presents, but pupils will be free to decorate the halls and sing carols. "We are educators and we want our school programme to advance the personal development of our students as much as possible," the school said.|
