Europe Is Committing Spiritual and Physical Suicide
Saturday, May 14, 2016
We’ve already witnessed the spiritual demise of Europe. Can its physical demise be far behind?
In early May, Brussels Airport finally re-opened after being closed for nearly six weeks, following the March terrorist attack that killed sixteen people.
While it will not be back at full capacity until mid-June, the
Belgian government sees the re-opening as part of their effort to regain
some sense of normalcy after the attacks Another part of their
efforts is figuring out how to deal with its restive and disgruntled
Muslim minority, especially in places like the now-infamous Brussels
suburb of Molenbeek.
This tiny municipality, measuring less than 2.5
square miles, not only produced the March 22nd attackers, it’s also the reason Belgium produces proportionately more ISIS fighters than any other European country. In recent remarks before the European Parliament, Koen Geens, Belgium’s Minister of Justice, told parliamentarians
that “In Europe, very shortly we’re going to have more practicing
Muslims than practicing Christians …
That is not because there are too
many Muslims, it is because Christians are generally less practicing.” Not surprisingly, people, and not just Muslims, took offense at his comments. Belgium’s Interior Minister said that Geens was “making an enemy of Islam” and insisted that “the overwhelming majority of [Belgian Muslims] share our values.”
in the furor over Geen’s comments was the fact that he was talking
primarily about secularism and the decline of Christian practice, and
values. Also lost in this conversation over Belgium’s future,
Islam and its jettisoned Christian heritage, is that the nation has
turned euthanasia into a fundamental right. As PBS put it,
and everyone already knows, Belgium has “the world’s most liberal
euthanasia laws.” Physician-assisted suicide there isn’t limited to the
terminally-ill – people with psychiatric illnesses or even children can
also be euthanized. Read it all here..........................
