Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
During earlier negotiations on the content of the new EU charter, Spain, Italy and Poland were among the strongest supporters of a reference to God in the treaty.

Is the issue so important in any of these or other countries that they might actually vote to reject the Constitution if it excluded a reference to God?

Out of the Dark Age came the most magnificent thing we have in our society: the recognition that people can have a society without having a state.

I'd vote to reject it if it included one.

I'm not quite a member state, of course. But I'd hope I wouldn't be unique.

They put up a new text with God in it to the French, it'll get thrown out again.
