Current EU policy has nothing to do with the vision of the founding fathers

A Europe not based on the identities of its nations is a creation that is uninteresting and damaging to everyone including itself, writes French veteran press correspondent to Poland Bernard Margueritte

Very often politicians and media depict those who criticize or do not accept Brussels’ current policy as “Euroskeptics” or even enemies of Europe. This is, of course, untrue. One can even state that the true Europeans are those who have a different vision of Europe than the one currently being pushed in Brussels.

As a matter of fact, the current version of the EU has nothing in common with the vision of the great “Fathers of Europe” – Schuman, Monnet, De Gasperi and Adenauer. They were all deeply religious people who dreamed of a Christian Europe and of a Europe which respects the identity of its fatherlands, even if it accepts a common policy in strategic areas.

The Fathers of Europe are rolling in their graves when they see their piteous successors endorse an aggressive version of secularization which has become the new religion of anti-religion. How can the trampling of spiritual and moral values be in accordance with European humanism? How can promoting LGBT, not as freedom to love anyone but as an example to be followed, be in accordance? How can support for murdering unborn children be in accordance with it?

Today’s EU is a betrayal of Europe.

Moreover, how does the current EU respect the identities of European countries? Where is the Europe of Fatherlands, which was so dear to Charles de Gaulle? The EU was meant to establish basic, strategic aspects of developing the continent, such as foreign, economic or even military policy. It was not meant to interfere in the internal affairs of member states.
