France to ban all Christian symbols in latest attempt to ‘fight the advance of political Islam’




In a desperate attempt to keep Muslim women from wearing their religious garb, National Front leader Marine Le Pen has offered a controversial proposal.

The conservative leader suggested all religious clothing and symbols should be banned in France.

According to Christian Today, Le Pen made the announcement on Sunday.

Should she be elected France’s next President, Le Pen said she would ban religious symbols in all government buildings, state schools and public places.

“I know this is a sacrifice, but I believe that the situation is too serious today,” she explained.

“Every French person must understand that we are asking of them a sacrifice in order to fight the advance of political Islam.”

Banned clothing and symbols would include everything from Christian crucifixes and prayer beads to the Jewish kippah.

Le Pen clarified a “conspicuous” religious symbol is everything from jewelry to coverings – but Catholics need not worry.

Speaking to World News, Le Pen stated, “The Catholic religion doesn’t have conspicuous symbols” and attempted to say Catholicism “invented secularism,” which the French Republic respects.

Continuing her reasons for the ban, she said it will “confront the rise in power and extremely strong pressure of political Islam that uses women and the veil to advance their propositions.”

When asked if religious police would be established to enforce the ban, Le Pen claimed the normal national police force will be responsible to uphold what would become law.

France prides itself on its secularism and is not afraid to impede religious rights.

Please pray for France and its future. No Christian should be forced to hide their faith.

    At its core, secularism is anti-religion.

    Kenya Sinclair concludes: “No Christian should be forced to hide their faith.” She didn’t say, no “believer” should be forced to hide their faith. It sounds like she is happy to discriminate against other religions. Hostility to the other is modus operandi of Christianity, so this is not unexpected. France has suffered centuries of religious warfare on its soil propagated by both Christianity and Islam. It’s understandable that they have had just about enough of magical, imaginary, invisible beings that live in the sky.

    This is yet another example that we can have religion, or perhaps we can have peace – but we know we can’t have both religion and peace at the same time.
