Merkel says German multi-cultural society has failed

Looks like Germany is waking up to the fact that a multi-cultural society causes many problems. Here in America this would be labeled as "bigotry" by the liberals, I think Merkel makes a very good argument for: "when in Rome, do as the Romans do". You can read the complete article by clicking on the link at the bottom of this post.

The Saying: WHEN IN ROME, DO AS THE ROMANS DO. Who Said It: St. Ambrose When: 387 A.D. The Story behind It: When St. Augustine arrived in Milan, he observed that the Church did not fast on Saturday as did the Church at Rome. He consulted St. Ambrose, bishop of Milan, who replied: "When I am at Rome, I fast on a Saturday; when I am at Milan, I do not. Follow the custom of the Church where you are." The comment was changed to "When they are at Rome, they do there as they see done" by Robert Burton in his Anatomy of Melancholy. Eventually it became "When in Rome, do as the Romans do."
