Thread: The cross and halo to be removed from Euro coins?

  1. #1

    Default The cross and halo to be removed from Euro coins?

    Slovakia 'asked to remove' cross and halo from euro coin: theparliament.com

    The European commission has asked Slovakia, which has recently been dragooned into the Euro to redesign its coins to remove the cross as it has a problem with religious symbols.

    What next? Are to have our shamrock removed from out sports shirts due to its religious association?

    Another pathetic attempt all political correctness and interference into national interests.

    The article points out that when a country is designing its coins it has to take into account the fact that they will be circulating throughout the entire eurozone.

    It's not appropriate to have religious symbols on coins for that reason, if neutrality is the goal.
    Repeal the 27th.

    I think Norway should be removed from the map on the coins and notes, it looks like a big willie drooping over Europe.....

    Personally I'd prefer if they'd remove the Euro from our lives.

    Sounds like the EU Commission has given the Slovaks a perfect excuse to get out.

    As if having to bailout out Irish quango snouts is not already enough of a reason.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.
