Comments on: Can the EU promote ethical values in the economic crisis? http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/05/27/can-the-eu-promote-ethical-values-in-the-economic-crisis/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Heather, Tanenbaum http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2009/05/27/can-the-eu-promote-ethical-values-in-the-economic-crisis/comment-page-1/#comment-12208 Fri, 29 May 2009 20:13:24 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=6157#comment-12208 While it is a laudable step in the right direction, more is probably gleaned from who wasn’t in attendance than what was actually decided upon. It is a shame that attention was detracted from dealing with the economic crisis. But the controversy also highlights that inter-group relations is another important topic, one that will continue to surface in more and less subtle ways. We cannot expect societies to work together motivated by shared ethical values if we cannot even get them into the same room. Real, broad impact begins with the invitation list and the RSVP.

After centuries of being hounded on European soil, why would they want to partner with the European Union on economic governance? As for the (non-Catholic) “Christians” who went along with this, they’re in for a big surprise.
