Germany: Altar, pulpit, baptismal font removed as church used as shelter for migrants

This is emblematic of things to come: as Europeans welcome the Muslim migrants, they will give up their own cultural identity — for the most part voluntarily, at least at first.
“Muslim migrants moved into German churches — pews, altars, crosses removed,” Pamela Geller, October 29, 2015:
Translation of this article in the Handelsblatt.com:
Refugees move to a church
Necessity is the mother of invention – and flexibility: a Protestant community offers the city of Oberhausen a church to serve as shelter. Soon shall 50 refugees move into the church. Before that, benches and altar are thrown out.
Oberhausen. A church serving as shelter: Some 50 refugees are expected to move into a evangelical church in Oberhausen. The parish had offered that to the city, city spokesperson Rainer Suhr reported on wednesday, confirming a report of the WDR (TV station). “We gladly accept that.”
The evangelical Church in the Rhineland is the first church that is presently in normal use which will be used as a refugee shelter.

Before the refugees can move in, the seats have to be taken away. Also the altar, the pulpit and font are movable, the superintendent of the church district Oberhausen, pastor Joachim Deterding said. In the church, table groups shall be set up, so that people could prepare their own breakfast and dinner. Lunch will be delivered.
The sanitary facilities with washing machines will be put in containers next to the church. The church even wants to get involved in taking care of the refugees.
