Strasbourg, France, Jan 14, 2011 / 02:11 pm (CNA).- A 2011-2012 school calendar published by the European Union has omitted Christian holidays, while continuing to note important Jewish and Muslim celebrations.
The European Union has printed three million copies of the calendar which will be distributed free-of-charge to students who request them.
Former French politician and government minister, Christine Boutin, wrote in her blog Jan. 11 that the calendar leaves out Christianity, the religion practiced or recognized as forming the cultural assembly of our old continent.
Boutin is a consultant for the Pontifical Council for the Family, as well as president of the Christian Democratic Party in France. She went on to lament that Christianity has fallen into the limbo of collective ignorance.
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, Boutin continued.

ping of interest
Why am I NOT surprised!!??
Have to kill christianity. Or so they think. They have no idea what they are opening the door to.
although the atheist world might want to (LIE) pretend that the holy trinity: God/Christ/HS don’t exist, He doesn’t pretend that His people don’t exist. That is like saying that it is dark outside in the middle of the day.... it doesn’t change the fact that it is light.
the current administration and universe is pretending that evil is good and good is evil.... it is an excercise in futility and an eternal death sentence upon them
[the cultural assembly of our old continent]
Away with the old and in with the new......burkas maybe?
We knew this was creeping in but to see things actually put into place is pretty startling. Guess the people all agree over there?
“Have to kill christianity.”
It is interesting to note that this is aimed ONLY at Christians.
Other religions get a pass.
Maybe the wheenies fear that the Muzies might burn Europe.
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
Muzzies are attacking and threatening the Pope now to
He must ‘shut up’
I see this bringing Protestants and Catholics closer together
The Muzzies have no idea what they have started
Everyone in Europe has no gone soft
And the USA will take them on and kick 0pansy out on his skinny dopehead butt too

That was my point. You kill Christianity and you create a void. The Mohammedans move in and take over. They will burn Europe in the process.
We live in one of the reddest counties in one of the reddest states. Our collectivist and GODLESS government “schools” have “Winter Break”. Christmas no longer exists in these indoctrination camps.
You mean there is no Buddhist holiday, like Vaishaka Day?
Whats wrong with these ignoramuses? They should include EVERY religion of the world! Then they would have at least one day off every week in the year!
Stupid idjits!! LOL.
Seriously. Europe is in deep trouble.
I know, and burning him in effigy. Yes I agree it should bring all Christians closer together because of what we're fighting.
I just can't believe the people have allowed this to happen there but have read Europe isn't very religious anymore. They don't know what they're in for.
This hasn’t come to American schools. At least not yet.
Inactive Catholics in Europe will start reacting as they see the violent Muzzies attacking the Pope
Think about Ireland - Catholics there can get riled up and mucho active - as do the Protestants
Together or apart - they can shut things down El Quicko
Italy is another spot to watch
France is already reacting
Spain - is Spain -
They need to bleed more before they wake up El Cid
That's good to read. What about England? Prince Charles seems to be for the muslims. It still amazes me when I read of prominent people being at ease with islam.
How can anyone believe it a ‘religion of peace’?
It’s not just fear of the Muzzies - Europe’s elite have been hankering for an excuse to push Christianity out of their daily lives - look for it to be illegal to be a Christian (Unless it is a state approved christianity) in the future as that is where it is ultimately heading.
Prince Charles is a wimpy jerk
His son -
Prince Harry is tough fighter
One day off from their onerous four day work weeks? lol
Immediate remedial action taken to correct omission of Christian holidays in Europa Diary 2010/2011
Immediate remedial action is being taken to rectify the omission of certain Christian religious holidays from the Europa Diary 2010/2011. This was a regrettable error which will be addressed by a Corrigendum sent to all teachers who ordered this edition of the Diary in all EU Member States concerned. There was never an intention to discriminate against the Christian religion in this publication.
“How can anyone believe it a religion of peace?”
When you live in a bubble and other people control the information that gets to you, a person can be made to believe practically anything.
Agree, Charles is a wimp. Harry is a fighter and William is a ladies man but OK.
Ummm, some will and some won’t in my mind. Those people allowed their country to get to the state it’s in. That’s what we’re fighting right now.
The dummies here believe everything the MSM tells them, the more intelligent search for the real news. If our news were limited we would know better than to believe them.
I recall the uprising in Iran, how hard they fought and the killing of Neda. They weren’t believing what nutjob spoke.
I kept my analysis short
Yup the young Princes are fine
Charles is off in Mamby-Pamby Land
Well, Charles is besotted with love for Camelia - or whatever her name is, lol. Elizabeth is holding off for William to take over I think. Good move.
It got kinda WORMY, didn’t it? heh.
Prince Charles can go off to his Enviro-NUTSIE conferences and leave the serious business to his sons....
I was talking about the Stuxnet Computer Worm and the Iranian Nuclear Program above.
Charles loves all the Global Warming stuff, etc.
Lol, my previous response will apply to that too! Snakes alive!
The only worm-ish gifs I had handy!
Charles is also enchanted by Muslims
I know. I wrote that in my post yesterday, lolol.
Yes - I saw that post
OK, when you said he was also enchanted by the Muslims I thought maybe you forgot it.
Long day, huh? Lol
Still cannot get through
Messages still full up and blocked
No storm here yet - 1am - 6am/10am I see
Enough snow already!
Very strange. Did you call who you were going to call?
I spent the day reading around the web. My eyes are wore out.
No answer there either - I’ll get through to my niece tomorrow night
TV and PCs can tire the eyes a lot
Circulating heated air in the winter can contribute to ‘dry eye’ and give your eyes a double-whammy
A wet washcloth over your eyes for at least five minutes often helps
No, just tired from reading long threads and articles, but I do that every day and working on graphics is even worse. I haven’t done that in awhile. It’s getting late.
Using a large screen helps for me - but I know a large HDTV would help - especially on the text and details
- Trying to mix up and balance my schedule often does not work for me
My eyes are talking to me tonight
Lol, you need to go on to bed and rest them, you must have had a long day.
I’m about to head off myself.
How can anyone believe it a religion of peace?
Any religion largely unchecked and seldom under scrutiny from the highest authority cannot be a religion of peace for very long. Had it not been for the European people, and their politicians, Islam would not have become a protected class, but would likely have had to get what just about every other one of us has to get. But in actuality, that is the Europeans’ choice, and that choice has consequences.
