The Europa Beast busy fighting Christendom...

To be fair its actually MEPs (I presume by 'Europa Beast' you mean the EU) sticking up for Christian rights in the face of discrimination by national governments such as here in the UK. That we are discriminated against here is not news (I constantly have to point out the hypocrisy of schools here trying to get my kids to remove crosses when their female muslim classmates are free to wear headscarfs - luckily so far they've always backed down but I think that's only because we Orthodox are also a minority and so when I assert that we are meant to always wear a cross, they simply don't feel they know enough to argue). That some MEPs are trying to fight our corner is, and unexpectedly welcome news at that.

We owe greater gratitude to those who humble us, wrong us, and douse us with venom, than to those who nurse us with honour and sweet words, or feed us with tasty food and confections, for bile is the best medicine for our soul. - Elder Paisios of Mount Athos
