Some surprising words from Belgian Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy the first President of Europe and Devout Roman Catholic
I was genuinely pleasantly surprised to read some of the past statements (2004) from our new European Emperor (The first for 500 years)
Here is a couple from the EU Observer:-
“Turkey is not a part of Europe and will never be part of Europe,”
“An expansion of the EU to include Turkey cannot be considered as just another expansion as in the past. The universal values which are in force in Europe, and which are also fundamental values of Christianity, will lose vigour with the entry of a large Islamic country such as Turkey,”
It also transpires that he is a devout Roman Catholic. So we have a devout Roman Catholic leading a secular European Empire?
Gosh, this is going to be more interesting than I first thought.
