Europe And The Faith And Brexit



Hillaire Belloc famously wrote that "Europe is the Faith." He had a point, the ethics, philosophy and culture of Europe, its way of life, was shaped by Christianity. 

Enter the European Union, the continent's bold postwar attempt to reinvent itself as a pan-national superstate governed by... what? Certainly not Belloc's Faith, there's no mention, for example, of Christianity much less Catholicism in the EU Constitution.

Instead we find a utopian vision of unprecedented personal freedom seen in terms of radical autonomy, of Crowley's do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. The fulfillment, if you like, of the liberal project which takes the Enlightenment as its start line only to be ruled over, ironically enough, by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.


No. 10

Of course there's no room for God in the above equation, how could there be? How dare a so-called deity set limits on my self-expression? And so we find ourselves faced with "bake the cake or go to jail" in the US or "better get trans or lose your job" in the UK. Tolerance, it seems, is a one way street and the Paris Statement makes the point. Read it here.

The UK voted against this, whether deliberately or not. It said no to the secularist, antichrist, false Europe and yes to national sovereignty. Will England realize this in a return to the Faith?

Probably not if the Church of England has anything to do with it; you see, they took the wrong step years ago. Let's pray something will fill the vacuum other than Islam.

Your Pal,

They stopped doing what is right (what is moral) and even talking about it, and started talking about what would get them power and money. It's the first step down the road to the hot place.

The fact that there’s faith in the country is a good start.
Fabulous Brexit photos, LSP!

Wish them well. Amazing the people fighting back after decades of nonstop leftist assault. Is the day coming when we can once again say, "There will always be an England?"

LSP said...

Thankyou, Juliette! Wish I could've been in Parliament Square...

You know the old saying, LL, "follow the money."

Speaking of which, why is Hillary still at large? C'mon, Dunham, let's see some action.

LSP said...

Sure hope so, WSF. Well done, England.

England controlled most of the world at one point. Now they cant even provide healthcare to the residents. Well, Exit was a step in the right direction.

Kid, have a gaze at the Paris Statement, linked in the post. I'd say the authors have a point.

Yep.
