Europe is no longer Christian: Observatory on Christian intolerance

2014-12-21

One of the trademarks of Europe is that for centuries the Old Continent has been Christian. Things have changed though and that notion is becoming something of the past. 

MARTIN KUGLER
Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe
"Christians in Europe, still of faith that they are the majority which is not true if we are talking about practicing Christians. If you don't have your faith really in your life then you don't mind if you are forced to cooperate in an unethical thing in your profession.”

The Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe, monitors direct or indirect aggression against Christians. In 2013, it found 241 cases of intolerance. From those 133 of them were violent attacks on worshiping sties. The rest dealt with work discrimination and new legislation.

"There is discrimination in legal spheres when we are using our freedom of conscience.  For instance when we are talking about medical staff, medical doctors, pharmacists, midwives who are forced to cooperate in an abortion or in vitro fertilization or in euthanasia.”

Experts confirm that religious discrimination against Christians has worsened in the last few years. If Christians want to defend their faith and  convictions, Kugler says they must first change their mentality and recognize that they are a religious minority, that will become even smaller if something doesn't change.
