'From fanaticism to barbarism is only one step' - Diderot

Oh, how right the EU Parliament was to blackball Buttiglione from the EU Commission!

Signor Rocco Buttiglione's petulant announcement that he plans to camapign for 'Christian values' in Europe reveals just how vital it was for the EU Parliament to disallow his candidature as the EU Justice Commissioner. If he hadn't been directly implicated in efforts to remove discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation from the Charter of Fundamental Rights, then I could just about have gone along with his nomination to the EU Commission, but as it is we are FAR better off without him.
