Why The Left Loves Europe

Let's visit Europe today, where human rights are celebrated -- unless, of course, they are the civil rights of conservatives.
In Germany, believing abortion to be as murderous as the holocaust is a crime, and educating your own children is a crime too. In France, saying that “homosexual behaviour endangers the survival of humanity” is a crime, and so is the distribution of pork soup to the poor. In Belgium, speaking out against immigration is a crime.
Sounds like the Fairness Doctrine-loving Dems would love a passels of laws like that, so they could do stuff like this:
Last week, a German court sentenced a 55-year old Lutheran pastor to one year in jail for “Volksverhetzung” (incitement of the people) because he compared the killing of the unborn in contemporary Germany to the holocaust. Next week, the Council of Europe is going to vote on a resolution imposing Darwinism as Europe’s official ideology.
And this:

Indeed, next Tuesday, the Council of Europe (CoE), Europe’s main human-rights body, will vote on a proposal which advocates the fight against creationism, “young earth” and “intelligent design” in its 47 member states.

According to a report of the CoE’s Parliamentary Assembly, creationists are dangerous “religious fundamentalists” who propagate “forms of religious extremism” and “could become a threat to human rights.” The report adds that the acceptance of the science of evolutionism “is crucial to the future of our societies and our democracies.”

“Creationism, born of the denial of the evolution of species through natural selection, was for a long time an almost exclusively American phenomenon,” the report says.

Banning the human rights of creationists in the name of human rights -- ah, Europe! How enlightened!

All of the pulled quotes above are from one article, Secularist Europe Silences Pro-Lifers and Creationists, in Brussels Journal. Being a conservative, I don't require stuff of others (except those on my payroll and under my roof), but if I were a liberal, I'd make this piece required reading for everyone this weekend.

Except if I were a liberal, I wouldn't want anyone to read what's really going on.
