This has been one of the main controversies over the creation of the EU constituion.The failure to create it, underlines the diffrences between the main powers in Europe. France was openly agains a reference to the Christian Church, obviously this is due to the fact that atleast 3 million people are non-christian. On the other side, we have Spain and Italy whose populations are largely christian, to be precise 99% & 98% (The economist )respectively. The numbers speak for themselves. I personaly would not support a constitution with a reference to the Christian church. Even though I am Catholic, I dont think it is necessary to mention the Church since would only provoke resentment in the Muslim,.Jewish, Hindu ect.. What one could include, is a refference to God, a Universal god, who can be preached by any man of any relegion. Sounds Utopian? Well no it isn't. How hard can that be? Who will it offend?- The Pope... o c'mon! Give me your opinions understandings.
