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.
