EU Censors Christian Symbols on Slovakian Coin

The USSA’s rulers aren’t alone in striving to eradicate all reminders of the Christian religion that has served as the foundation of Western Civilization for 2,000 years. Eurocrats share the same objective. When Slovakia attempted to commemorate its history by circulating a €2 piece in honor of the 1,150th anniversary of the arrival in Moravia of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius, the EU commission’s fist came down. Moonbats didn’t like it that the coin design included a cross and a halo.

The commission said the removal of the religious symbols was due to the need to observe religious neutrality.

“Religious neutrality” is Liberalese for the unremitting war against anything that reminds totalitarian leftists of the Christian religion. So long as Christianity is remembered, some will understand that theft is wrong. This undermines the entire liberal system of government, which is founded on mass theft. It also will not do for subjects to harbor the notion that there is a higher moral authority than corrupt, piggish, parasitical bureaucrats.

    So when it is Christians, all we here is “religious neutrality” or the non-Constitutional “separation of church and state”.

    But when Islam is the topic, we are lectured about tolerance and freedom of religion.

    Found the perfect graphic for the EU.

    Funny how history repeats itself.

  • Alan

    So commemorate two saints without alluding to religion. Got it.

    Of course, to the EU, religious neutrality doesn’t prevent supporting an international law criminalizing those “who would balspheme” Islam:

    As for criminalizing the same under US law, here are the results of polling data collected by Wenzel Strategies during October 22 to 26, 2012, from 600 US Muslims:

    There is widespread support among rank and file American muslims for fundamental rejection of freedom expression. When asked, “Do you believe that criticism of Islam or Muhammad should be permitted under the Constitution’s First Amendment?, 58% replied “no,” while only 42% affirmed this most basic manifestation of freedom of speech, i.e., to criticize religious, or any other dogma. Indeed, oblivious to US constitutional law, as opposed to Islam’s Sharia, a largely concordant 45% of respondents agreed “…that those who criticize or parody Islam in the U.S. should face criminal charges,” while 38% did not, and 17% were “unsure”. Moreover, fully 12% of this Muslim sample even admitted they believed in application of the draconian, Sharia-based punishment for the non-existent crime of “blasphemy” in the US code, answering affirmatively, “…that Americans who criticize or parody Islam should be put to death.”

    These are overwhelmingly Obama’s peeps.

    What is it with liberals and this obsession with worthless currency ?

  • Comrade J

    @GFAH

    same as the obsession with worthless [fake] worldview.

  • Alan

    Since all US money, from the cent to the hundred-dollar bill, contains the motto In God We Trust, I suppose Europe doesn’t want any of that circulating either?

    Also: eye of Providence on the back of a dollar bill with the phrases ANNUIT COEPTIS – NOVUS ORDO SECLORUM (“He [God] Approves of our Undertakings – New Order of the Ages”)

    A Zionist plot, I tell you! We don’t need those filthy American dollars in our country!

    I rise in support of my colleague Clingtomyguns. What will the EU say when the Turks decide to include religious elements on their coins? Are they willing to risk jihad against the Euroweenies by telling them “no religious symbols?

  • SmiteTheUS

    It’s called “secularism”. It’s what makes us different from Iran.

  • SmiteTheUS

    @Sam Adams: Turkey is one of the most secular countries in the world. Seriously, women in Turkey are not allowed to wear a burqua in public office. If they print religious symbols on their coins, I’m the King of China.

  • Comrade J

    The religion of Secularism butchered over millions people in Russia and over 60 million in China. Indeed Iran has not slaughtered that many people. Difference.

  • Beforethestorm

    It seems that Christians must be pushed against a wall to finally come back to their faith. I’ve never seen the Church under persecution…never expected to. I hear it is a beautiful thing. I hope that’s sufficient recompense for the difficult and horrible times we are about to experience.
