Like what the neo-cons are doing with the Constitution Restoration Act of 2004.

I am sad to hear this but alas I know it to be true and the consequences thereof will be forthcoming. Either Europe will be Muslim or atheist but Christ has been booted from the continent except for some of the eastern European nations.
They had persecution for years and now they see and are allowed to hold onto their faith.

European Constitution is nothing like american constitution.
EU Constitution is a symbolical legal document. Laws already exist in Europe and have been existent for hundreds of years. They do not need constitution do determine them.
The European Union is a union of, now already, 25 countries, SOVEREIGN countries, with already existent laws, guidelines, that have a foundation in over 3,000 years of history of civilisation on this continent and influence of over 6,000 years of written history of mankind.
The Constitution simply sumarises basic principles of HUMANITY, the general idea behind unity of people, peace, justice, equality, modern tolerant world.
It was written in 21st century and majority of europeans are quite happy with it. It does not ban church or God or pope or Christmas, it does not negate history, it does not make Europe islamic (another absurd idiotic claim with zero actual evidence made by some people who need a serious reality check).
The word "God" in Constitution in simply not neccesary. God is in Church, homes, history, holidays, in your heart, and that is where it should be.
Europe has decided. Deal with it.

Look I do not advocate the forcing of religion on anyone.
If it is as you say that the majority of people in Europe would consider themselves Christian, then what is the percentage that actually go to Church? It is not even 20%.
This would lead one to believe that complacent Christians abound there then and whether that is enough is up to the big guy.
One can not be a political Correct Christian, it is impossible to do so. I know there are Christians there, but they are far in the minority.
IMHO, one can not be a Christian if they only want the name, it is a faith and if they look to the government and the world for answers then they are of this world.
Read the 7 letters in Revelation and you will better understand what is meant when Christ says " I never knew you!"
