John F. Cullinan writes an interesting commentary on European Union & Constitution for National Review Online. The EU is in the process of writing a Constitution, while
the EU’s own polls show that less than 30 percent of its 450 million citizens are even aware that a constitution is being drafted. Hmmm, I wonder how many nascent Americans were aware of the work that Madison & Co. were doing in Philadelphia in the 1780s.
Europe seems bent on sacrificing the bull of historical accuracy on the altar of perceived tolerance in actively ignoring the role that the Church played, both good and bad, in the foundation and formation of Europe. The language echoing humanistic thought is scary…and mostly French, coming from former president M. Valery Giscard d’Estaing.
