EU abolishes Christmas
Except that the European Commission really have produced a new religiously-correct daily planner (aimed, naturally, at school children) in which it really is always winter but never Christmas.
Or always Diwali, Hanukkah and Eid but never Christmas, to be precise.
His Grace is loath to exaggerate or distort this story in any way, lest it be classified as just another Euromyth.
These daily planners, of which three million have produced (courtesy of the taxpayer), include the holidays of Jews, Muslims, Sikhs and Hindus, but there is not one mention of Christian holidays.
Despite Christians manifestly constituting the vast majority of the European Union.
You might expect them to omit Ascension Sunday, Lent and the Feast Day of the Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman.
But Christmas and Easter?
The page for December 25th is completely empty, and at the bottom is the following message:
"A true friend is someone who shares your worries and your joy.”That’s nice.
And evidence, if any were needed, that Christians have no true friends in the inner sanctuaries of the European Union.
It is even more astonishing that this planner not only includes the holy days of just about every religion except Christianity: it also mentions the secular key dates of significance to the European Union, like ‘Europe Day’.
Johanna Touzel, spokesperson for COMECE (the pathologically-federalist Commission of the Bishops' Conferences of the European Union) found the planner ‘unbelievable’.
It is even more incroyable when you consider that our President is a devout Roman Catholic who sees the EU as a ‘Christian club’.
Doubtless he will gloss over this a typo.
To omit one Christian festival may be regarded as an error; to omit two looks like carelessness.
But to omit all of them looks like conspiracy.
Or at least incontrovertible corroborative evidence that the EU is a God-less, Marxist, secular, religiously and politically-correct, totalitarian, omnipotent beast quite antithetical to Christians, Christianity and the message of Christ.
