  Orders from Brussels: Spell Christ "christ" or be fined
It must be getting a little too close for Christmas for the foo-foo palace of the pretentious European Union. The Grand Wizards in Brussels have come up with a new grammar rule for themselves and the Netherlands. Its official, the name "Christ" must be written with a lower-case "c". It is stipulated in the orthography reform published earlier this month in Brussels.

According to the Kath.net agency, the new spelling legislation will also stipulate that the Dutch word for "jews" (joden) be spelled with a capital "J" when referring to nationality and with a lower-case "j" when referring to the religion. The changes will be mandatory in August of 2006. There is no description of the fines offenders will face if they keep on spelling "Christ" with a capital "C" but the framework is in place for almost any amount are in place including jailtime.

At the European Union, the name of the carpenter from Nazareth may be diminished by lower-case spelling, but Javier Solana, High Representative of the Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) and the Secretary General of both the European Union and the Western European Union will continue to have his name spelled in capital letters. Note to the media, his titles are mandatory to be spelled in capital letters. I just wonder about the pollution when they start burning all those books again.
