This is a picture of the EU parliament building in Strasbourg:



Notice the oddly "unfinished look" of the building: walls separating spaces not enclosed, for example.

Now let's take a look at something else: a painting by Pieter Breugel called "Tower of Babylon"



Does anything strike you as similar? It does a number of people besides me. The EU promotes this resemblance in their own posters:



If you don't recall the story, here's the outline from Genesis 11:

And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.

2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there.

3 And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for morter.

4 And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth.

5 And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.

6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.

7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

8 So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.


Those wanting more details about Babylon and the role of Nimrod may either read Babylon Religion for the easy version or The Two Babylons by Hislop (there are many editions on the market, and you might want to investigate before picking one). For my purposes, I just want to make it clear that the EU has decided on a historical role for itself, and picked one that opposes God.

If I were being sarcastic, I'd respond to this with "Let me know how that works out for you!" -- but this is millions of people being misled by leaders who have decided that evil is more profitable than good. I know how it works out. So do you.
