Italian headmaster, Marco Parma, has resigned after he caused outrage by canceling his school's Christmas concert following the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris.
According to The Telegraph, he instead planned an event in January that would be a “winter concert” rather than a celebration of Christmas.
Luckily, common sense prevailed, and parents were angry with the decision.
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi said, “Discussion and dialogue does not mean to say we can drown our identity for the sake of a vague and insipid form of political correctness.”
He told Corriere della Sera that, “Italians, both non-religious and Christians, will never give up Christmas.”
Due to the outrage, the headmaster resigned. However, he maintained that his decision was not a step backwards in the fight against radical Islam.
“I believe that respecting the sensitivities of people of different religions or cultures is a step forward towards integration. This is a multiethnic school,” he said.
This isn't the first incident involving other religions being targeted after the Islamic terrorist attack in Paris. In Sweden, Jewish synagogues were shut down.
