The EUterus - the womb of the cult of death
His Grace's regular readers and communicants will know that he eschews hyperbole, exaggeration and distortion, for he likes to deal objectively, dispassionately and impartially with facts. Bruno Waterfield brings us the latest from Brussels - details of the EU's new £280m building which is to become the Presidential Office and home to future Brussels summits, replete with 'humane gathering place' and 'diversity carpet', all enclosed in a steel (rib-)cage which houses 'the heart of Europe'.
Our President, Herman Van Rompuy, described his 'Europa building' as a 'jewel box' (he would).
David Cameron refers to it as a 'gilded cage' (but even as Prime Minister is impotent to do anything about it).
Bill Cash, Chairman of the House of Commons European Scrutiny Committee, called it an 'Aladdin's palace...a cross between the bonfire of the vanities and Kafka's Castle' (and, being a mere MP, is also impotent to do anything about it).
But Mr Waterfield reveals that EU officials refer to this hubristic architectural extravagance the E-Uterus (His Grace prefers EUterus), on account of its womb-like central structure. "It looks like a womb and, I am sure, many grand visions of Europe will be birthed from there," quipped one official.
It is up to us to ensure that this moniker sticks. From this moment on, the EUterus must be a reminder to us all of the cult of death to which it gives birth.
Not a bit of it.
It transpires that EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding has threatened Hungary with financial penalties for promoting adoption over abortion.
There is apparently no justice for the unborn child in the EU's secular cult of death. No, indeed: steel and glass count for more in Brussels than flesh and blood. This is the 'pro-life' poster to which the EU so forcefully objects. The caption on the advertisement reads: 'I understand it if you aren’t ready for me. But think twice, and put me up for adoption. Let me live!’ This, apparently, is a message unpalatable to EU Justice Commissioner Reding. European Dignity Watch informs us:
During the plenary session of the European Parliament on the 8th of June 2011, the Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding expressed concern that the Hungarian Government’s campaign, encouraging adoption instead of abortion to promote a better work-life balance was “not in line” with the European Social Agenda and asked the Hungarian Government to stop the initiative without delay.Protect the Pope comments:
...Although Mrs Reding expressed her disapproval for the campaign, she did not explain in her answer to the European Parliament, the basis upon which she disapproved of the campaign. She did not cite any legal basis for her comments, nor did she say how it contradicted the European Social Agenda....
Here we see the depth of intolerance among the leadership of the European Union to any expression of pro-life sentiments among member states of the EU. Only one message is acceptable to the EU, the unquestionable, unassailable right of a mother to kill her pre-born child through abortion. To suggest the possibility of adoption is intolerable to a political institution that so actively promotes the culture of death.This being the case, why did the Pope lure Ireland into the EU's rotten heart? Why lead Poland into mortal sin? Why are the bishops positively effusive over ever closer union? Why deceive Hungary into believing that they can lead a Christian club? Why lure Croatia into what is manifestly a profoundly anti-Christian secular political cult?
The tragic irony is that it is the Justice Commissioner of the EU that is perpetrating this gross injustice against the pre-born children and mothers of Hungary and Europe. She wants to censor a campaign that merely raises the possibility of adoption. What of Europe’s much vaunted claim to defend the right to free-speech? This right only seems to apply to those who blaspheme and desecrate!
What more proof do we need to show the world that the European Union is developing into a totalitarian political institution that will only allow the promotion of anti-life propaganda?
If the sanctity of the uterus is to be guarded and preserved, the profanity of the EUterus must be abated and bound. The uterus brings forth life; the EUterus is the harbinger of death. There can be no fellowship between darkness and light.
