I don't get a vote in the EU elections, which take place this week. Voting in the UK will be on Thursday. I live in the United States. I could have voted, if I had organized a postal vote. I should have done so – but I forgot again.
That does not mean I don't have an opinion.
The EU is, in my opinion, the biggest issue in British politics at the present time. It is the EU which seems to have the power to override laws of the UK parliament, whose national authority now seems to be less than that of a typical State congress here in the US. The UK has limited control over its own borders. It no longer issues its own passports – instead issuing an EU Citizen's passport. I was never asked if I wanted this. I am 52 years old, but I have never had a say in whether or not I want to be a part of this institution, as I was too young to vote in the 1975 referendum. And the 1975 referendum was about staying in an institution called the European Economic Community, which was supposed to be a souped-up free trade area. No one voted to have a European Union with political powers over its member states.
There are many good websites with intelligent articles about why Britain would be better off leaving the EU. But there are some profound spiritual reasons why Britain should leave.
1. One of the homes of the European Parliament is Strasbourg. The Parliament building is consciously modeled on Brueghel's painting of the Tower of Babel. Indeed, one poster produced by the EU's education department shows this painting, together with the 12 stars in a circle of the EU flag – but notice how they are inverted in the fashion of satanic symbols.
2. Outside the HQ of the European Council in Brussels is a statue of the Rape of Europa. This image is celebrated elsewhere in the EU – notably that Germany has used the image on postal stamps and phone cards, while Greece has used it for a €2 coin. Indeed, even the Euro symbol – € – represents the crescent horns of the pagan god Zeus, as he appeared when abducting and raping Europa.
3. The capital of the EU's largest country – Germany – is Berlin. For nearly 100 years, Berlin has been home to the Pergamun museum, housing artefacts taken by German archaeologists from that ancient city. not the least of these is the Pergamun Altar – a huge temple, shaped like a seat, used in Perganum for blood sacrifices to pagan deities, and known in ancient times as “the Seat of Satan”. This is what Jesus was referring to in His letter to the saints at Pergamun in Revelation. The place where Satan now has his seat, and therefore where he dwells, is now at in Berlin, at the heart of the EU's largest country.
These three spiritual issues show that there is something deeply rotten and deeply disturbing at the heart of the EU. It is why, if I had obtained a postal vote, there is only one party for which I could possibly have voted on May 22nd 2014 – and that is UKIP.
Happily, it seems that a majority of people in the UK agree with me, and it is likely that the UK's 4th largest party will come first in Thursday's election.
