Council of Europe officially labels criticism of Darwinism an assault on human rights

STRASBOURG, France (Reuters) - Europe’s main human rights body voted on Thursday to urge schools across the continent to firmly oppose the teaching of creationist and “intelligent design” views in their science classes.

The Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly approved a resolution saying attacks on the theory of evolution were rooted “in forms of religious extremism” and amounted to a dangerous assault on science and human rights.

Ah, the joys of socialism with its “tolerance” for views that are not in lockstep with theirs.

That is why it must be eliminated as an economic and social system.

Amen!

Here’s a copy of the resolution as of 2007 - I suspect this is not the version passed, since the OP’s article mentions some haggling over the wording that delayed passage by a year.

Well, I certainly hope the bishops will speak out loudly on this.

:confused:

What does socialism have to do with the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly? Its a human rights body and has nothing to do with economics.

Also, the Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly is not an institution of the European Union, so the title of this thread is inaccurate and misleading.

What would they speak about, and why? Few bishops, especially in Europe, want creationism taught in science classes, so you’re not going to hear much opposition from them. On the other hand, even though the document praises the last two popes, most bishops are unlikely to endorse the document because there’s no good reason to get mired in what’s currently a trivial political issue.

If you look, it’s an old story (2007), it had to do with Muslim educational materials and the very right-wing (in European terms) Polish government at the time whose education minister Giertych was hawking creationism around.

That doesn’t mean it’s not news to at least some of us.

I was pointing out the context of the story.

The decision of the Council of Europe is influenced by Freemasonry, which also gave birth to Darwin’s views. Darwin was probably a Mason himself, judging by the stuff he wrote and caused. The European Union is an inherently Masonic organization ruled by the Grand Orient Masonic Lodge of Paris due to it’s aggressive secularism, abortions, socialism and Anti-Catholicism.

All this ‘human rights’. Most of it is Masonic stuff. So I proudly shout **“LONG LIVE EXTREMISM, DEATH TO DARWINISM AND HUMAN RIGHTS!” ** :stuck_out_tongue:

This is a joke, right? :confused:
