Ideological Atheism again being imposed in Europe

This week the European Court of Human Rights has ruled that crucifixes should be removed from classrooms in Italy. The case was brought by an atheist, Soile Lautsi, a Finnish-born Italian national who argued that the crucifixes were “contrary to the principle of secularism by which she wished to bring up her children”, and should be removed. It is a sobering thought that last week the Church celebrated the feast day of Bl. Mary Restituta, also known as Helen Kafka, who was ordered by the Nazis to remove the crucifixes from the hospital rooms where she worked as a nurse. When she refused she was imprisoned and later beheaded.
