Outrage after Halloween in, Easter out of EU calendar
The Association of Catholic Families from the city of Legnica, western Poland, has filed a complaint in response to what is being deemed as a prejudiced EU calendar that excludes Christian holidays.
The educational calendar, created for distribution in the 27 EU states, has been printed in over 3 million copies for 2011.
Whilst Sikh, Muslim and Jewish holidays have been included, Christmas, Easter and All Saints have not made it into the calendar.
The Polish edition comes under the honorary patronage of the the Ministry of National Education, whilst the foreword was written by EU Commissioner Janusz Lewandowski, factors which have further exasperated many Poles.
However, Poland is not alone in being irked by the EU publication. Objections have already been raised by French and Dutch politicians, amongst others.
In the response to the rumpus, an EU spokesman has said that the omissions were made “without any deliberate intent,” and that the same mistake would not occur in the 2012 edition. (nh)

EU Education Commission Communists: Christians not Allowed
There is one thing that socialist and communists fear. That one thing is, as we’ve said all along, CHRISTIANITY.
The latest evidence of this is the European Union “student calendar” for 2010-2011. This particular piece of liberal propaganda prominently features Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Shich, and Chinese festivals and holidays but not a single Christian holiday. Christmas and Easter, the holidays celebrated by over 90% of the European population are not even mentioned in the calendar.
The printing of 5 million copies of this anti-Christian calendar is not a mistake.
The Eucation Commission Chairman is one Androulla Vasiliou. Mrs. Vasiliou is an ardent communist just like her husband Mr George Vasiliou. The later’s father was a very prominent communist party member just don’t call his son or daughter in law that because it is so gauche. The approved term is “liberals” but we’ll stick to the truth and call them what they are, Godless communists
After the communists lost the war Mr George Vasiliou , the beloved husband of Andrula Vasiliou- the current European Union Education commissioner- was sent by his communist father to school in Hungary where he was a devoted student of one, professor Imre Nagy. Imre Nagy was a Hungarian communist politician who served two terms as Chairman of the Council of Ministers of the People’s Republic of Hungary.
