Some 21% of Europeans think religion is very important while in France the number is 10% and includes mostly old people. The new religion of Europe is a mix of hedonism, nihilism, socialism, feminism, and new age; best summed up as a sort of sweltering, self loathing costumed as sophistication and worldliness. If anyone can put lipstick and a dress on a pig and call it Marilyn Monroe surly the Europeans can. Religion, and even manhood itself, has been feminized into non existence; and what has emerged is a society that is powerless, faithless, and being sold to Muslim immigrants at no charge. The symbols of Christianity are everywhere in Europe but the Gospel has largely been rejected by the sophisticated Europeans in favor of Spiritual prostitution and cultural suicide. Europeans complain constantly about the Americans who protect them but continue to suckle the American taxpayer for its defense because they lack the will to defend themselves. To say that Europe is weak is an understatement of epic proportions: Europe is dying because it lacks the will to make babies and the courage to have faith in anything, especially its Christian heritage. Europe’s Christian heritage has been replaced with a sullen, adolescent sniveling that has given rise to cultureless surfs who are too impotent to reproduce, and too worldly to reclaim faith and meaning in life.It seems that the Europe of today can imagine nothing bigger then itself as it sneers at the church going Americans, even while America succumbs to the same spiritual malaise that has nearly proved fatal in Europe. Mistaking liberty for license has been the vogue in Europe since the end of World War II as they adopted socialism and a hedonist, to create a multicultural utopia that only a demented feminist professor could concoct. Individual freedoms and democracy is thought to include a right to legal clean hookers, drugs, euthanasia, abortion, free health care, decent housing, jobs, education, entertainment, and free porn on television, US Tax Dollars for defense, and a 4 day work week. The Europe of Today has cast off all semblance of personal responsibility, and, like the American Baby-boomers who idolize them, will discover that they either change their act and shape up; or they prepare to embrace the dustbin of history. Europe has so embraced the rejection of morality, the family, and personal responsibility in general, and Christianity in particular; that they can’t find the moral courage to protest their own extinction. A continent of insipid navel gazers whose concept of right and wrong comes from the whims of the moment can only find destruction and pain in the wholesale rejection of Christian Values and the adoption of hedonism and relativism.
The European of today has rejected religion for humanism and God for socialism. They’ve become a sulking, suicidal culture that’s about to find itself the custodian of the world’s new reserve currency. This influx of pure power and wealth will change Europe overnight and what will emerge from the weak Europe of today is a humanism worshiping, pragmatic entity for which values are relative and truth elusive. It is they who will deal with emerging nations like China and criminal nations like Russia, who will compete with them for global dominance. Perhaps the real difference between Europeans and Americans is that, when I think of such a scenario, it tends to drive me to church and to prayer; while I suspect it drives the Europeans to very expensive long held fantasy of their role in the world. Europe has something to prove, and the European wimps of today will be replaced by the humanist evangelists of Europeanism. Europe will again strive for power and control on the world stage and they will preach a new form of warm and fuzzy humanism and a social pragmatism that will enslave humanities soul. Talk about fertile ground for an Anti Christ! What kind of leaders will thrive in a God rejecting Europe who’s been thrust into world leadership by the economic destruction of the United States? They will claim that the new Europe is much different and wiser than the old Europe? For a time that may be so. A leopard doesn’t change his spots and in the end, I don’t think Europe will either.
Perhaps the ascendance of the Euro in coming years, as the reserve currency of the world, will give the perpetually morose Europeans a shot in the arm. Since World War II the Europeans have surrendered defense to the United States, rational, logic and critical thinking to socialist professors, manhood and the will to succeed to a toxic feminization of their culture; and perhaps all they really wanted was to matter again. When the Euro becomes the supreme currency in the world the Europeans will matter again as they trade soulless socialism for regional fascism and start having babies again. The world will mistake the fall of America as the triumph of Europe. Thebreath of fresh air that the world press has been pining forwill become the chill wind of reality as the Valueless, Pleasure loving Europeans of today assume the mantle of world leadership. The need to worship is inherent in human beings and the search for god is part of the human condition. What will our European friends worship in the post American world? What will Europe seek and substitute for religion and God in the Post American world ? They ‘ll have to grow up and come up with a European defense plan and of some kind of European armed forces if they want the opportunity for real influence on the problems of the 21st century. Unfettered by oppressive religions systems like Christianity they will be free to worship pragmatism and regional self interest as God.
