Austria officially prefers superstition to science

Austria cannot affort to participate in CERN anymore. We simply cannot spare the 17 million Euros per year to finance the probably most important and exciting experiment in physics right now because we need to relieve the tax burden on membership fees to, say, a homophobic organization whose leader proclaims that condoms will increase the spread of HIV. Or to an organization that maintains that using blood transfusions to treat an ill child is immoral. And those tax reliefs cost us 30 million Euros, so sorry, science – we can’t afford you anymore.
