European Union inches toward Totalitarianism

From LifeSite...

The European Union’s Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) adopted a resolution earlier this month titled Women and Religion in Europe, which recommends that countries “ensure that women are not subjected to religiously inspired policies and laws [such as] abortion law[s].” 

Maintaining laws that protect the most innocent and helpless members of society – the unborn – in contrast to a so-called woman’s right to choose to kill their unborn children, PACE maintains, is a form of “intolerance and discrimination” aimed at women by what they decry as male-dominated religion – an obvious reference to Roman Catholicism, a faith with a male-dominated hierarchy and a prohibition against abortion. 

The resolution, the brain-child of Swiss Group of the European People’s Party, Mme Rosmarie Zapfl-Helbling, also strongly condemned religions that support a “patriarchal culture which holds up the role of wife, mother and housewife as the ideal,” as another form of discrimination against women.

I think a whole lot of Americans look at the European Union as a lit stick of dynamite, inevitably to blow up, with unexpected results. The fuse just got a little shorter.
