The main objective of Europa Terra Nostra (ETN) is to connect people of European descent for the purpose of their permanent preservation, which is why ethnicity is the primary focus of our policies. We try to avoid the polarisation of the European family by refraining from prioritising one specific religion over others. As a secular organisation, we do not allow strong religious dogma to influence our overall policies. Our attitude towards Christianity is predominantly a cultural one, due to its contribution in shaping large parts of our historical development significantly, and its influence on different cultural areas of the arts. However, ETN does not look to partake in any “religious wars”.
We define European cultural heritage metaphorically as a bouquet of flowers with a common rootstock. The three essential roots represent Greco-Roman, Celtic/Germanic and Christian/pagan paths of development – along with other European religions. Recognising the great historical currents of the Enlightenment on one side of the socio-cultural spectrum, and Romanticism on the other, ETN rejects both the concepts of the dogmatic absolution of Reason on European society on the one hand, as well as dogmatic limitations on spiritual freedom and the restriction of practising religion on the other hand.
Although holding spiritual faith by itself does not automatically mean immediate adherence or belonging to any religious institution per se, it is noteworthy in this context that various religious institutions in Europe do not express any signs or sentiments of defending Occidental heritage and the indigenous European ethnicities against Islamist zealots and foreign infiltration, up to the point of replacement. With regards to political and ideological attitudes, the influence of spiritual faith and religion on a European nation can vary between different nations’ respective histories and socio-cultural mentalities.
ETN itself is officially neutral, when it comes to spiritual and/or religious matters. This means that ETN embraces anybody of any European religious background, regardless whether they are Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, atheist or has a spiritual/aesthetic alignment to Europe’s pagan roots. The crucial point is in being socio-culturally authentic, with a worldview stemming from respective national traditional sources, which are in turn pillars of the various cultures and foundations of a national community´s identity. These are the benchmarks of reasonable nationalist thought.
