STATISTICS OF CRIMES AGAINST CHRISTIANS IN FRANCE
In Paris, at the meeting of the fellowship of the
General Alliance Against Racism and for the Respect
of French and Christian Identity, information on the
number of hostile actions against Christians during
the period of January 1 to September 30 was
announced. The statistics were given by the director
of L'Observatoire de la Christianophobie Daniel
Hamiche, reports Sedmitza.
According to the information of the portal which
records and describes cases of christianophobia, the
following has been registered in France over the
first nine months of this year:
– 109 public insults of Christians, sacrilegious
actions, cases of vandalism or destruction of
– 70 cases of profanation and acts of vandalism
on the territory of places where religious rites are
– 25 cases of profanation and vandalism at
– 17 attempts of arson in places where religious
rites are performed;
– 8 attacks on priests and monks/nuns;
– 6 hacker attacks on Catholic websites;
– 4 intrusions into churches during the Mass and
interruption of services.
Beyond all this, French officials have announced
another proposal regarding the reform of the
calendar of holidays. The state organization,
"Observatory of secularism" has made a proposal to
cancel two holidays, intended for Christian feasts,
and to replace them with Jewish and Muslim ones. The
idea was proposed by the anthropologist Dounia
Bouzar, who was appointed to the Observatory by the
French prime-minister Jean-Marc Ayrault not long
ago. Bouzar considers that replacement of the
Christian holidays with Yom Kippur and Eid al-Fitr
will help "neutralize radical Islam and give a
symbolic space to the Jewish and Muslim holidays".
The reaction of Christians and Muslims has not
kept itself waiting. Specifically, the president of
"Observatory Against Islamophobia" Abdallah Zekri
stated that it was not necessary "to undress Peter
in order to dress Muhammad".
PHILOSOPHER PIERRE MANENT: FRANCE HAS BECOME
February 6, 2014
"France has become violently anti-Christian,"
believes Pierre Manent, professor of political
philosophy of the Institute for Social Science
Research, reports Sedmitza.ru.
"The civil war in France. The republic against
Christianity," is is the title of the interview,
given by the philosopher to the Italian weekly, Il
"What we call
secularism is legal wording, which indicates a
victory of one side and a defeat of another side".
has conquered Catholic France and Catholic France
has accepted this. Today we are living in the period
after the civil war," explained Manent.
‘Enlightenment’ hated God, while the founding
fathers of America separated the church from the
state in order to protect the previous from the
latter. In France it goes the other way round,"
believes the philosopher.
Secular banners on
fronts of all schools, compulsory sexual education
courses for 6-year-old children, the planned reform
of the calendar for the purpose of introducing of
secular days instead of Catholic feasts, arrests of
opponents of same-sex "marriages" for silent protest
actions--France is trembling before secularism,
government has created a new progressive ideology,
where democracy is completely freed from all meaning
and boils down to no more than the acceptance of
individual rights. We have lost the idea of reality.
This is an aggressive conception of equality and
freedom, an idea of life with no connection to the
public good. There are only individual rights,
desires," explains the philosopher.
" French secularism
has driven the Church away from the public space.
This project, which was successful, was initiated by
the citizens with the new moral code. And the Church
is considered the enemy of the republic in this
project," concludes Manent.
