Europe Not Christian

The Prime Minister of Turkey's says Europe's decision over the admittance of Turkey into the EU will determine the continent's future:
Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Europe would squander the chance to overcome longstanding Christian-Muslim suspicions if it stepped back from its commitment to full membership for Turkey.

"This is a test for the EU," Mr. Erdogan told members of his ruling Justice and Development party in a regular Sunday address. "The EU will either decide to become a global actor or it must accept that it is a Christian club."
Nope. Niall Ferguson has the depressing reality. Europe isn't Christian and it hasn't been for decades.

Some Christians do live there. That's about it.

But from your lips to God's ear, Mr. Erdogan.
