Austrian laicism

I had planned a lengthy piece on laicism in Austria, because when watching the parliamental debate on the ratification of the European constitution, I noticed a member of the biggest political party starting his speech with a quote from the Bible. Unfortunately, I don’t seem to be able to sort out my thoughts in such a way that they’d make a good post. Thus, I also won’t be able to comment on the fact that Cardinal Schönborn, probably still high on the whole pope farce, has deemed it necessary to intervene in the discussion on the reform of the Austrian school-system. My inability to find a red thread guiding you and me through this planned post also hinders me from wondering out loud why the hell the representatives of the major political parties then actually invited him to take part in the discussion. It’s a real shame I won’t be able to do this post, because I’m sure some of you would be able to explain what the hell happened to laicism in Austria. Oh well, in the meantime, check out those lunatics.
