Bishops' conference leader welcomes Nobel Prize for European Union
October 12, 2012
The president of the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences of the European Union (COMECE) has expressed delight at the news that the European Union will receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
Cardinal Reinhard Marx said that the honor for the European Union is “a clear sign that Europe can contribute to a better world.” The cardinal said that the Nobel Prize selection “reminds us what a great contribution to a peaceful development of the Continent the European integration project has achieved. And what a great share politically engaged Christians have made to this achievement.”

Perhaps they can use the money to bail out Spain, Ireland and Greece?

What utter rubbish. The "Nobel Peace Prize" is about as much of a joke as the winning a Grammy; just a bunch of elitist insiders patting each other on the back. The stuff these prelates say in their mad rush to play the sycophant to secularist globalist elites in their love fests of self congratulation is nauseating. The EU rejects Jesus Christ, isn't that enough to show that true peace--real lasting peace--is not part of their agenda?
