EU THOUGHT POLICE: YOU MUST SPELL CHRIST WITH A SMALL 'c'

Those thought-thugs in Brussels, the EU policy police, have come up with another "brilliant" idea. They are now requiring that Christ only be spelled with a small "c"! What? Is this not the tyranny the LEFT so often rails about? I guess so long as they agree with it, it's OK.... can you say: Socialism gone wild?
It must be getting a little too close for Christmas for the chi-chi crystal palace of the pretentious European Union. Pooh-bahs in Brussels have come up with a new grammar rule for themselves and the Netherlands--making it official that the name "Christ" will soon be written with a lower-case "c". That was the stipulation in an orthography reform published earlier this month in Brussels.

According to the Kath.net agency, the new spelling legislation will also stipulate that the Dutch word for "jews" (joden) be spelled with a capital "J" when referring to nationality and with a lower-case "j" when referring to the religion. The changes will be mandatory in August of 2006. There is no description of the fines offenders will face if they keep right on spelling "Christ" with a capital "C".
