Was reading about internet "memes" and found this:

Europe according to the Vatican... Kind of funny...

Warning, it is not politically correct, and may offend some.

Okay, I might need to buy this. I'm a sucker for memes that mess with maps.

Christ is ascended!
Interesting.  I'll have to leave it at that, lest it be misconstrued as political.

Thanks for posting  ;D
Don't feel bad. He never went to Greece, Russia or Italy either.

But He did spend His childhood in Egypt. ;D

Why is Belarus WTF?
Belarus is the most pro-Vatican of the Orthodox states. In a couple of years we might even have a concordat with the Republic of Belarus.
I don't understand the connexion between "Teutonia" and Lithuania (?)

Just change the color code and few words and all is good!  I was glad to see that most of us come from lands
that are just 'misguided'.  ;) ;) ;) :eek:
Not I; I am an assassin!

Lighten up, it's supposed to be satire, not scholarship.

BTW, since Belarus is the most totalitarian of the post-Soviet states and has seemingly done the least to dismantle the state apparatus that existed pre-1991, why would a concordat with Belarus be something to be proud of? Just asking....

Your friends, the Teutonic Knights.

I would debate that;
The concordat would an affirmation of the Church's right to exist. Without a concordat, the State can disestablish the Catholic Church and all organised religion. This happened in France, and from 1905, no Church of any stripe has legal personhood in France. The only legal form of religious organisation in France is the cultural association but not the Catholic Church as a whole or a diocese.
The concordat is essential for the Church's existence in Europe. I'd just like to add that Serbia also wants a concordat from what I have heard.

They got us quite right: "orthodox Latins", a unique historic accident.

I guess I misunderstood your point, but to my American ears, it would be like saying one of the former Confederate  states over another was the less oppressive than others with 'Jim Crow' race laws following our Civil War and Reconstruction.
