Italian crucifix ruling European “Dred Scott”?

Neil Addison, a barrister who specialises in the law relating to religious freedom, has written another blog relating to the European Court of Human Rights’ (ECHR) decision to ban crucifixes from Italian classrooms. 

Addison believes that the effect of the ECHR will be to effectively imposed French-style secularism on the rest of Europe over time, since the Charter of Fundamental Rights, on which the Court relies, is now part of EU law with the passing of the Lisbon Treaty.
