Christodoulos on godless EU

The head of the Church of Greece on Saturday castigated as “unfair and
historically ignorant” the ommission of any reference to Europe’s Christian
heritage in the draft EU constitution.

Speaking at the start of a four-day visit to Samos, Archbishop Christodoulos
complained that “a small minority insists on excluding Christianity from the
culture of Europe.”

“This is not only historically ignorant, but also unfair to a continent and
its peoples that have benefited in many ways from Christianity,” the
archbishop said.

The draft EU constitution, prepared by the European Convention under former
French President Valery Giscard d’Estaing, was approved by EU leaders during
the June summit in Halkidiki. The final document will be shaped before the
10 new EU members join the Union next May, following discussions beginning
in October by the intergovernmental conference.

Christian churches are lobbying strongly for inclusion of a reference to
Europe’s Christian heritage in the final text.

Why bother?

There are so many Muslims in Europe now (breeding much faster than the natives) they may take over soon, and they would delete any such reference anyway.

Contraceptives and abortion have practically doomed Europeans to extinction on their home continent.

It is not the availability of contraceptives which is the problem, but rather, the will to use them.

Of course, but it is a lot simpler to write "contraceptives" than it is to write "the will to use contraceptives." Besides, without actual contraceptives the will to use them is of little use.

However one expresses it, Europeans are willing their own extinction and using contraceptives and abortion to bring it about.
