Europe's Militant Secularism

Archbishop Gänswein spoke yesterday in Switzerland in anticipation of the upcoming European Parliament elections about the strong anti-Christian (read anti-Catholic) bias as reported below from Magazin für Kirche und Kultur.

Einsiedeln) Curia Archbishop Georg Gänswein found clear words a week before the elections to the European Parliament. He criticized the lack of commitment of politicians opposed to discrimination against Christians in Europe.
The Prefect of the Papal Household of Pope Francis and personal secretary of Benedict XVI spoke on Sunday in the Benedictine Abbey of Einsiedeln in Switzerland at the annual pilgrimage of the Pontifical Relief and Works Agency of the Church in Need . Archbishop Gänswein mentioned that while in the media and politics every form of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia are condemned, the same standards are not applied in relation to the discrimination against Christians in Europe.
The German Curia archbishop lamented that in the EU, with a new European Parliament to be selected on May 25th, there is a widespread "militant secularism". Certain circles in Europe want to put a "muzzle" on Christians and push religion to the margins, according to Gänswein. This, however, would mean suicide for the European Union, according to the Archbishop, because Europe cannot survive if it renounces its Christian roots.
