Is God dead in Europe?;
(And what might that mean for America?)
BYLINE: James P. Gannon

Two snapshots from a recent tourist trip to Europe: We are in
Prague, the lovely and lively capital of the Czech Republic, where
the bars and cafes are full, the glitzy crystal and art shops are
busy, and the dozens of historic cathedrals and churches are
largely empty—except for gawking tourists snapping photos. In
The Prague Post, an English-language weekly newspaper, a
front-page article reports, in titillating detail, how the city has
become Europe's new capital for pornographic filmmaking,
while an op-ed examines why only 19% of the people in this
once-religious country believe that God exists.

Change the scene to Rome. We are at the Vatican, swimming in
a sea of 150,000 people waiting in St. Peter's Square for Pope
Benedict XVI to appear at a special celebration for Catholic
children who have made their first communion in the past year.
Rock bands and kids' choirs entertain the faithful until a roar
sweeps through the crowd at the first sighting of the
"Popemobile," carrying the waving, white-robed Benedict down
barricaded lanes through the throng. The crowd goes wild.

For an American Catholic visitor, Europe is a puzzling and
sometimes discouraging place these days. Is God dead here?
Many signs suggest that Europeans think so.

Decline in attendance

"Common wisdom has it that alcoholics outnumber practicing
Christians and that more Czechs believe in UFOs than believe in
God—and common wisdom may be correct," wrote Nate and
Leah Seppanen Anderson in a Prague Post commentary; he's a
freelance writer, and she's a political science professor at
Wheaton College in Illinois and a specialist in Czech politics and
society. Surveys show a sharp decline in church attendance and
religious practice in most European countries. A series of
Eurobarometer surveys since 1970 in five key countries (France,
Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy) shows that regular
church attendance fell from about 40% of the population to about
half that figure. Declines were sharpest in predominantly
Catholic nations.

Even so, how do we account for the extraordinary outpouring of
grief at Pope John Paul II's death in April and the enthusiasm
that his successor seems to evoke? Are these mere public
spectacles, signifying nothing about Europe's drift from its
religious roots, or are they signs of yearning for something more
than peace, prosperity and la dolce vita?

As only an occasional visitor to Europe, I claim no expertise in
these matters. But some who do see the emergence of a
post-Christian era in Europe that has profound consequences
for the continent and perhaps is an ominous portend for the
United States. Where Europe has gone, America could be going
—and that is a prospect that is frightening Christians and
sharpening the religious divide in this country.

Western Europe, the cradle of modern Christianity, has become
a "post-Christian society" in which the ruling class and cultural
leaders are anti-religious or "Christophobic," writes George
Weigel, a Catholic columnist and U.S. biographer of Pope John
Paul II. In his new book, The Cube and the Cathedral: Europe,
America, and Politics Without God, he argues that religious
differences help explain the policy tensions between Europe and
the United States.

"It would be too simple to say that the reason Americans and
Europeans see the world so differently is that the former go to
church on Sundays and the latter don't," Weigel writes. "But it
would also be a grave mistake to think that the dramatic
differences in religious belief and practice in the United States
and Europe don't have something important to do with those
different perceptions of the world—and the different policies to
which those perceptions eventually lead."

A fierce controversy over any mention of Europe's Christian
heritage erupted in 2004 when officials were drafting a
constitution for the European Union, Weigel notes.

Any mention of the continent's religious past or contributions of
Christian culture—in a preface citing the sources of Europe's
distinct civilization—would be exclusionary and offensive to
non-Christians, many argued. Former French president Valery
Giscard d'Estaing, who presided over the process, summed up
the dominant view: "Europeans live in a purely secular political
system, where religion does not play an important role."

'Demographic suicide'

Among the consequences of Europe's abandonment of its
religious roots and the moral code that derives therefrom is a
plunge in its birth rates to below the replacement level. Abortion,
birth control, acceptance of gay marriage and casual sex are
driving the trend. Europe is "committing demographic suicide,
systematically depopulating itself," according to Weigel.

United Nations population statistics back him up.

Not a single Western European country has a fertility rate
sufficient to replace the current population, which demographers
say requires 2.1 children per family. Germany, Russia, Spain,
Poland and Italy all have rates of about 1.3 children, according to
the U.N. The Czech Republic's is less than 1.2, and even Roman
Catholic Ireland is at 1.9 children. (The U.S. rate, which has
remained stable, is slightly more than 2 children per woman.)
Fifteen countries, "mostly located in Southern and Eastern
Europe, have reached levels of fertility unprecedented in human
history," according to the U.N.'s World Population Prospects
2004 revision.

As children grow scarce and longevity increases in Europe, the
continent is becoming one vast Leisure World. By 2050, the U.N.
projects, more than 40% of the people in Italy will be 60 or older.
By mid-century, populations in 25 European nations will be lower
than they are now; Russia will lose 31 million people, Italy 7.2
million, Poland 6.6 million and Germany 3.9 million. So Europe
is abandoning religion, growing older, shrinking and slowly
killing itself. These are signs of a society in eclipse— the Roman
Empire writ large. Is this any model for America?

In his 2001 book, The Death of the West, conservative
commentator Patrick Buchanan argues that a European-style
"de-Christianization of America" is the goal of many liberals —
and they are succeeding.

Court decisions that have banned school-sponsored prayer,
removed many Nativity scenes from public squares, and
legalized gay marriage are part of that pattern, as is the legal
effort to erase "In God We Trust" from U.S. currency and "under
God" from the Pledge of Allegiance.

Europe is showing us where this path leads. It is not the right
path for America.

Dear Jagbir and All,

The Message of Hope that Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi brings, goes beyond the
limited comprehension of religious regimes. She states that no matter what type
of corruption there is in the world today, the Comforter/Holy Spirit is the most
powerful force on Earth and will overcome all the corruption and She is also
most powerful to save the humanity from slavery to this corruption.

In fact, All of Humanity, and All of Creation, have been waiting for this
Special Time of Resurrection:

"For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the
sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not of its own will,
but because of Him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself also will
be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the
children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the
pains of childbirth together until now". (Romans 8:19-22)

The Whole Creation has been suffering 'UNTIL NOW'. However.....now that the Holy Spirit/Comforter has come to quicken the process of our Spiritual
Birth.........'En Masse'.......we are experiencing the spiritual liberation of
being evolved from being a mere Human Being to Becoming the Spirit.

This power raises us into the Kingdom of God within ourselves, wherein we are
then born. The power that gives us our Spiritual Birth is the same power that
also raised Christ Jesus:

"But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who
raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies
through His Spirit who indwells you." (Romans 8:11)

As you so rightly say, Jagbir.....this IS the atruth beyond the limitations and
comprehension of senile religious regimes and their rigor mortis dogmas. Our
religious rituals and practices must culminate in a Universal resurrection!

love and best wishes to all,

Violet
