Joan Smith: Sorry, God. You’re not on the guest list
When the leaders of 27 countries meet in Berlin today to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the EU, there will be one significant absence. To the annoyance of many Poles, who have what is arguably the most crackpot right-wing government in Europe, God has not been invited to the party. Neither Christianity nor the deity feature in the declaration which Europe’s leaders will sign to mark the occasion, signalling the high point of what has been a fantastic week for secularism.
