1m Christians sign EU religion plea

"An EU official said: 'These Christians could at least have the good grace to accept that they lost the argument."

1 million Christians sign EU religion plea.

Refusing to accept a secular "fait accompli" from Brussels, a Christian coalition is demanding that each EU state publish its version of the constitution's preamble, with references to God if desired.

Already armed with 1,149,000 signatures and with thousands more pouring in from Holland since the murder of the film-maker Theo van Gogh, the group claims that most states want some reference to Christianity but were blocked by France."

It seems that France's favorite activity is to veto the wishes of any group or nation who has the temerity to suggest anything
that France did not propose.
