Europe's Suicide

There have been several controversies involving religious symbols and garments in recent years throughout Europe. The latest concerns the rights and wrongs of hanging crucifixes in public buildings, especially schools.

Not surprisingly this has caused a bit of a stir in Poland. Here is the point of view from the traditionalist side of the argument.....

If we are looking for a symbol which really connects all Europeans, we won't find it in the blue flag with 12 stars but in the cross. That is why the decision of the European Court of Human Rights(ECHR)to award compensation to a woman who took offence to the crucifixes on show in an Italian school represents an acceptance of Europe's cultural suicide.

Without the cross, and without Christianity, there is no Europe. The symbol represents Europe not only religiously but culturally. Where there is no longer a roadside chapel, a solitary cross (whether Catholic or Orthodox) or a church with its Gothic tower or onion-shaped dome, there is no longer Europe.....

.....the cross signifies the fact that God sacrificed his son for us... this means that every human being has a priceless value that no-one or nothing can take away....
.... of course Europeans, including Christians, have not always lived according to these teachings but crosses, chapels and cathedrals remind us that we can always return to God, who loves us despite everything.

Now this symbol is under threat. British Airways reprimanded a flight attendant for wearing a crucifix around her neck and the ECHR have decided that the cross can hurt the 'religious' feelings of atheists. ( Perhaps someone could explain to me what 'religious feelings' a non-religious person can have? )

None of this is surprising because the cross symbolises everything that is contrary to the nihilist spirit of post-religious Europe. That is why they are doing everything in thier power to make the cross disappear...

...the cross signifies suffering.. it reminds us that human existence contains pain, illness and unfulfilled desires. Modern Europe is based on the avoidance of any kind of suffering or discomfort...

... and now they should ban the flags of many European countries which may offend the sensibilities of atheists. Malta, Swtizerland, Denmark, Swede, Finland, Norway and the UK will all have to change their flags, as they all contain the cross. And in today's Europe the cross has no place......

The Crucifixes offend few but the terminally querulous and I find myself supporting Kaczynski on this for the first time on anything ever,

BTW Roger Scruton, conservative philosopher, has added his support to our Protect Krakow Heritage Campaign. Scruton's aesthetics and philosophy of acrchitecture are brilliant.

I just despair at why such an intelligent High Tory has joined the American Enterprise institute, He's not a neocon but a "plaleoconservative".

Still I work with left wing ecologists, conservatives, political liberals and greens-only neoliberalism and technocracy is the consistent enemy.

Schools with Crucifixes, they may make kids whose parents didn't teach them Christianity feel awkward and/or suggest to them that they are obliged to learn Christianity, although there are other religions and faiths of life - atheism counts as a faith - which each person is supposed to think are equally alright to choose on another hand.
I don't mind Crucifixes in schools whose comunities have democratically decided for themselves to have Crucifixes there, but a country of Europe shall not declare itself Christian or Catholic and impose Crucifixes on all its schools without caring of the real views and wishes of concrete communities. ;)
