European seculars fear religious lobby

Just quoting a news paper article I found. I translated it from Dutch, so there might be some errors and everything Smiling
Not going to translate everything either.

"Secular organisations in Europe want to combine to oppose the increasing pressure from religious organisations and lobby groups"
"The new union will be called 'Alliance for secularism in Europe' and will unite humanistic, atheistic but also liberal religious associations and organisations for the rights of women and homosexuals"
"a recent rapport that allowed an objection based on conscience in the health care branch is an example of the powerlessness secular groups when divided"
"Christian organisations state the opposite, because they prevented a reference to the Bible in the European constitution"

So Europe will get a stronger irreligious political branch. Interesting.
