prince amir refused to speak in church, no problem

Reader comment on item: Swiss Minarets and European Islam

Submitted by myth (Germany), Jan 16, 2010 at 07:03

Let me add this somewhat funny episode to support Dr Pipes idea that maybe the swiss vote is a turning point. I make reference to the german language article here: http://www.general-anzeiger-bonn.de/index.php?k=loka&itemid=10490&detailid=687131

Prince Amir is denied the right to speak in a roman cathlic church ceremony in M√ľnster(Germany) supported by the arch bishop in Cologne on the grounds that prince Amir is a muslim. Prince Amir is fine with the refusal. Now the funny bit is that prince Amir is a prince in carnival, no more. The carnival community however regrets the ban. What is new to me is that the whole affair is handled without the usual discrimination theatre but with a sense of humour and nonchalance.
