It's Official - Europe Hates Catholicism
And the hierarchy doesn't see the solution? Sheesh, a blind man can see it.

Two interesting stories today concerning the secular institutions and the Catholic Church in Europe.

First we have this from the nation that gave us Their Most Catholic Majesties, Ferdinan and Ysabella.

Spanish children as young as 10 will be taught pro-homosexual material as part of a new school curriculum, the Telegraph reported Friday.

The socialist government revealed plans last week to include teaching about the homosexual lifestyle in the schools, emphasizing the normalcy of homosexual relationships. The general secretary for education, Alejandro Tiana, said the move was necessary because “children need to learn there are various types of families.”

And this tid-bit of objectivity from those fine fellows running the show in the halls of government throughout Europe.

Between 1994 and 2004, various European institutions have condemned the Holy See on 29 occasions for supposed violations of human rights, while Cuba has been condemned only 25 times and China just 15.

And we have all sorts of stories coming out of Europe where this Polish Cardinal, or that Spanish Archbishop is making all sorts of grand pronouncements about how Catholicism is the Soul of Europe, etc, etc.

But instead of going back to the tried and true practices of Catholicism that made Europe great in the first place, just about everyone wants to retain the status quo... and by that, I mean the watered down, Protestant inspired, insipid Novus Ordo.

Want to see a re-conversion of Europe? Simple... offer the people real Catholicism. Not a rehashing of that garbage that luther foisted upon the world.

Amen to that. There simply is no substitute for Catholic tradition. 40+ years of history since V2 bear witness to the fact that the Novus Ordo is moribund and that Tradition is what is growing.

Hilaire Belloc said it best: "Europe will return to the Faith or she will perish. The Faith is Europe; and Europe is the Faith."
