The Catholic EU?

I know I shouldn't mix religion and politics... but here's a story that does.

It seems that the EU has annoyed Christians in the Netherlands (of a Protestant denomination)... on the basis that the EU flag (with 12 stars in a circle) is too similar to the 12-star halo that surrounds the head of the Virgin Mary in Roman Catholic art.

Here are both:










So, they might have a point.

But you have to ask, is it something worth getting offended over?

What a nonsense. Some people have so little to do in life ...

Thanks. But blogging is my life, even if it is nonsense.

If you take that away, what will I do?

I think subrosa was referring to the content of your article which I agree with. Some people really must be bored if they argue about stupid and pointless things like their halos being similar with the EU flag, grow up people.

Take care, Julie
