Europeans Lowercase 'Christ'

A new grammar rule devised in the Netherlands and Belgium stipulates the word "Christ" shall be spelled with a lowercase "c."

The rule was part of a Dutch orthography reform published in October, reported Canada Free Press.


The paper cites a German newssite, Kath.net, in reporting that the new guidelines also indicate the Dutch word for "Jews" (Joden) is to be spelled with a capital "J" when referring to nationality and with a lower-case "j" when referring to the religion.

The changes "“ made by the main linguistic authority for the Dutch language, Nederlandse Taalunie "“ become mandatory next August.

While the proper name of Jesus Christ "“ "Jezus Christus" in Dutch "“ will still be capitalized, other references to Christ, such as a statue of him, will be spelled with a lowercase "c," as will references to other figures who claim to be Christ.

Many Europeans have long discarded belief in God and in fact believe more deeply in ghosts than in a deity.

A new poll finds two-thirds of Britons said they believe in the existence of ghosts and spirits, but only 55 percent said they believe in the existence of God.

Meanwhile, 26 percent believe in UFOs, 19 percent in reincarnation and 4 percent in the Loch Ness Monster, Ananova reported.
