Reader feedback: Religious values are for non-believers too

Re: EU forges its constitution, By Lukáš Fila, June 28 - July 4, Vol 10, No 25

Not being religious myself, I should not have a problem with the lack of reference to God or Christianity in the forthcoming EU constitution. But in fact I do! Apart from the fact that I respect the values of Christianity, I would regard the inclusion thereof as an almost fail-safe protection against the possible future accession to the EU of a predominantly Muslim nation (Turkey). I've got nothing against Muslims, but Europe is Europe, and Islam is alien to it. And geographically Turkey does not belong in Europe.
