For those who have yet to understand that multiculturalism is nothing of the sort and is merely cover for the continual denigration of Western Christian civilization in the ongoing internal effort toward its eventual overthrow, the latest news from Europe ought to do a good deal of convincing.

The London Daily Telegraph reports that a Dutch Catholic charity organization has begun to call Lent "Christian Ramadan."

The Catholic charity Vastenaktie, which collects for the Third World across the Netherlands during the Lent period, is concerned that the Christian festival has become less important for the Dutch over the last generation.

"The image of the Catholic Lent must be polished. The fact that we use a Muslim term is related to the fact that Ramadan is a better-known concept among young people than Lent," said Vastenaktie Director, Martin Van der Kuil.

Four million Dutch describe themselves as Roman Catholics, according to the Telegraph story, and they tend not to be nearly as serious about fasting and other acts of self-denial during Lent as Muslims are during Ramadan. Hence the church charity’s idea to set Islam as an example for its members to follow.

No doubt their intentions are good, but the assumptions behind their action are truly dumbfounding. If only for chronological accuracy, they should, if anything, be referring to Ramadan as "Islamic Lent."

But of course that would bring on full-scale war, and these people have already been so weakened by multiculturalsm that they would much more readily switch than fight.

If this sort of thing keeps on, how far away can the end be?
