France flattens churches, mosques boom

From Giulio Meotti at Gatestone,

In the last 30 years, more mosques and Muslim prayer centers have been built in France than all the Catholic churches built in the last century.

The Church of Santa Rita used to stand in the fifteenth arrondissement of Paris. A few weeks after Father Hamel was murdered by Islamic terrorists, the French police cleared the church. It is now a parking lot. Police dragged the priests out by their legs as a Mass was being celebrated.

In France there are laws protecting old trees. But the state is free to flatten old Christian churches. The vacuums created in the French landscape are already being filled by the booming mosques. Cowardly French authorities would never treat Islam as they are now treating Christianity. More.

Reality check: The French chose this a long time ago and prided themselves on their sophistication. Now that death, oblivion, and obliteration are the New Cool, they can pride themselves on it. Even the destruction of world art treasures would show how tolerant they are.

    Like room temperature cool man, can you dig it?

      God set before us the choice between life and death, then asked us to choose life.

      When you choose death in spite of that you’ll get what you wanted.

    This is not a fad. This is permanent

    My information may be a little dated, but here’s a possible reason for all these mosques: France has a representative body for muslims called Conseil Francais du Culte Musulman or something like that. Each mosque elects representatives, and the number of representatives a mosque has is determined by square footage. So what you get is mysterious groups from the middle east financing the construction of mega-mosques so they can get the most representatives on the CFCM. The mosque doesn’t really need a congregation. The bigger the mosque the more representatives, and obviously the more mosques the greater the number of reps overall.

    I think I read this in ‘Frere Tariq’ years ago, and I don’t know if the rules have changed.

    I doubt that the destruction of the Musee d’Orsay and the Louvre would register with these people.

      The Chinese tourists would be the most disappointed about it. The French… who knows?

    The present state of affairs has its origin in the principles of the French Revolution. We are on the same trajectory in Canada thanjs to the Quiet Revolution which has affected not only Quebec but all of Canada. The restoration of sanity can only come about when we have the courage to defend, uphold and transmit the Judeo Christian beliefs that have made the West the best.

      Yup. My sentiments. The French revolution and the Gender genocide did incalculable damage to France.
      Mind you there are shoots that the fake newsies(tm) will never report on

    Laïcité replaced by Islamïcité

  • Cat-astrophe

    Like I have said all along: Our governments are turning the management of society OVER to Islam.
    Sharia Law WILL be the system of Governance all over the world, every square inch of it.
    I do not like it, I wish I did not believe it and I wish it could be stopped.
    But the deck is stacked against this from ever being rolled back.

      The U.S.A. will be safe. Americans understand how pernicious Islam can be.

    • Bless his heart

      Kill them if they do not renounce Islam.
      This after giving them one opportunity to leave.

    “mosques boom”?

    Are those the IED’s they’re building in there going off prematurely? 🙂

    Next the French will demolish their museums and burn their history books to erase the last 2,000 + years of French history.

    The tolerant shall get slaughtered by Islam.

    France, you chose death by slaughter. So shall you die.

    Nazi’s, muslims…you get the picture. I suppose there were a few good french people in the french underground during WWII but it seems their genes were killed off.
