Last week I reported on the Council of Europe denouncing ID as a threat to democracy (go here). I also asked how long it would be before advocating ID in Europe would be regarded as a hate-crime. We may have to wait no longer:
Secularist Europe Silences Pro-Lifers and Creationists
From the desk of Paul Belien on Sat, 2007-06-23 18:53
Last week, a German court sentenced a 55-year old Lutheran pastor to one year in jail for Ã¢â‚¬Å“VolksverhetzungÃ¢â‚¬Â (incitement of the people) because he compared the killing of the unborn in contemporary Germany to the holocaust. Next week, the Council of Europe is going to vote on a resolution imposing Darwinism as EuropeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s official ideology. The European governments are asked to fight the expression of creationist opinions, such as young earth and intelligent design theories. According to the Council of Europe these theories are Ã¢â‚¬Å“undemocraticÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“a threat to human rights.Ã¢â‚¬Â . . .
