BERLIN (AFP) – Germany’s attempt to create a multi-cultural society has failed completely, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said last weekend, calling on the country’s immigrants to learn German and (more importantly) adopt Christian values.
Merkel weighed in for the first time in a blistering debate sparked by a central bank board member saying the country was being made “more stupid” by poorly educated and unproductive Muslim migrants.
“Multikulti”, the concept that “we are now living side by side and are happy about it,” does not work, Merkel told a meeting of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party at Potsdam near Berlin.
“This approach has failed, totally,” she said, adding that immigrants should integrate and adopt Germany’s culture and values.
“We feel tied to Christian values. Those who don’t accept them don’t have a place here,” said the chancellor.
So much for Secularism & the separation of Church and State!
I thought Europe stopped forcing it’s religion on others when it stopped the crusades! (about 10 – 50 years ago)!!!!
What happened to Human rights, tolerance, co-existence and freedom of religion & expression?! I guess the governments of the west only uphold these values when it’s in their best interest!!!
