Euro Ethics... continued
BUT WHAT WILL BE THE CONSEQUENCES?
A currency conversion means more than the carrying of
different coins or banknotes in our purses. It will involve a severe diminution
of our national sovereignty, because our allegiance and responsibilities will
be to an outside Body in Brussels.
Co-operation and trading with Europe is one thing, but
ceding our sovereignty is an entirely different ball game. The majority of
British people did not dream that the simple agreement made in 1956, would
eventually evolve into the setting up of a monolithic political structure over
which a European Parliament would reign supreme. As a matter of fact they were
promised that this would not be so.
Aleady some of our Laws have been altered by the adoption of
the European Bill of Human Rights, some of which are quite unacceptable to
Christians. There are evangelical Churches on the continent which are now being
regarded as cults. The recognition of same -sex marriages is under review and
one wonders if such a law was passed, what the position of a Christian minister
would be if he was asked to perform such a wedding ceremony. If he refused he
would most likely be charged with discrimination. Conscience would not be
considered, and principle would be criminalized. Talk about the Moral Maze!
