The European Union has published a school calendar that omits Christian holidays, like Christmas and Easter, while noting significant Jewish and Muslim celebrations.
Three million copies have reportedly been printed of the calendar, which will be given out freely to students who request it from the union's 27 member countries.
The Catholic News Agency reports that former French politician and government minister Christine Boutin noted the omission of Christian holidays in a Jan. 11 blog post, saying the calendar slights "the religion practiced or recognized as forming the cultural assembly of our 'old' continent."
She wrote that Christianity has "fallen into the limbo of collective ignorance."

The removal of Christian holidays clearly demonstrates that that Christians have lost power.
