E.U.: We've Outgrown Christianity

A 2011-2012 school calendar published by the European Union has omitted Christian holidays, while continuing to note important Jewish and Muslim celebrations.

While Christian holidays such as Christmas and Easter are missing from the calendar's pages, days commemorating “Sikh Baisakhi-Day, the Jewish Yom Kippur holiday, the Muslim holiday Aid-el-Kebir,” remain in place" . . .

There you have it, my friends: the spawn of multiculturalism; the natural outcome of mass immigration; the stinking droppings of apostasy. In the cradle of western civilization, the first great mission field for Christianity where the children of God brought His Good News from the land of Israel -- now the mere acknowledgment that Christians are one religious group among many is too much to expect from the E.U. Perish the thought that Christianity and its two thousand-year influence on Europe and the world might merit a position of privilege. The E.U. school calendar cannot even mention its existence.

Christianity is the only religion in the world that receives transparent disrespect from the powers that be. How interesting that this treatment fits Jesus' words like a hand fits a tailor-made glove:

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. -- Luke 21:17

But He leaves us with a promise -- a positive message of hope for the future:

Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets. -- Luke 6:22-23
