    The first and most fatal mistake that the Europeans are making is the attempt to regress into paganism. Islam is pagan, that is why is appears so much more acceptable than chrisitanity. The truth is that the ONLY reason that Europe ever progressed into becoming the great tranquil continent that it has, is because of christians, whom remain the majority in Europe despite centuries of onslaught upon the message of salvation from one and ONLY JESUS CHRIST.

    Paganism is suspicion and sorcery and rituals that take a soul to death and destruction. Christianity is what destroyed the backwardness of paganism and ushered Europe into becoming the bedrock of science. To continue moving forward and to gain in strength one should rely, not on oneself or other men, but on JESUS CHRIST. We can do that. We must stop denying our cultural heritage of christian values and principles and at the same time stand against evil steadfastly, and multiculuralism is the means that is being used to destroy Europe.

      I can’t tell if this is meant to be parody or not.

      Great comment Julean.

      The Estonians did not even become a recognised nation until they became Christian and that is true for most nations in Europe.

      Our homelands were mainly full of tribes warring against each other until a single faith united them and helped mould them into coherent nations.

      At least then we were warring against other nations, rather than among ourselves and had the chance to form national states on large pieces of territory, leading to technological and philosophical breakthroughs as well as genuine social justice such as the medieval guilds and the banning of usury.

      Trying to go back to paganism is like trying to go back to being a child once you have grown up.
