A Friday Afternoon Stroll

…in The City of Lights.

“We were expecting Islam to adapt to France, but it’s France adapting to Islam.”

At the end of this report, they note that Parisians themselves are FED UP and taking ACTION. In true French fashion ~

They’ve started staging pork and wine apéritifs, or cocktail parties in the street. Patriotic demonstrations meant to strike back against Islam.”

(See? Remember our VERY successful Danish Dinners? Well, HELLO! No book burning haterhaters and a helluva LOT more congenial!!!)

UPDATE: I began this post on the 9th of September last year and have just had it sitting. I guess I know now why I didn’t finish it then or discard it entirely ~ the ending was waiting to write itself. Muslims ARE still blocking streets, generally pissing off the locals and ruining Fridays in areas throughout the city, but they’ve come up with a novel solution to get themselves OFF those very same streets.

You see, on Fridays, there’s all those EMPTY CATHOLIC CHURCHES…

Muslims ask for use of empty French churches

Muslims in France have asked for the use of empty Catholic churches, saying that this would “prevent Muslims from having to pray in the streets.”

In a press release published on Friday, the 11th of March:

…the “Banlieuses Respect ” Collective asked authorities in charge of organization of the Church of France, to place at Muslims’ disposal “empty churches for Friday prayers”. Hassan M. Ben Barek, a spokesman for the Collective, said the measure would “prevent Muslims from having to pray on the streets” and being “politicians’ hostages”.

The poor fellow who wrote the second article I linked to writes pretty eloquently for European Muslims to relinquish their hold on their Arab sensibilities ~ he even tries to talk some plain common sense about the space problem: “…Even if it takes twice as much space, it is up to the Muslim community to solve the problem. The State or the Church has nothing to do with it.

But he should probably save the nib in his quill, eh?

I don’t think they’re reading his paper anyway.

    France is a lost cause.Since the destruction of the Maginot
    line,they’ve lost their soul.
    Talk is cheap-they won’t do anything to help their situation.

    I lived in Paris in 1990 and heard the call to prayer every day walking home from class. It’s rather sad and pathetic that a country/society that supposedly values its uniqueness has done little to preserve it. But then again, the French are rather fond of surrendering.

    Post-Catholic Europe.. they want to turn every church in Paris into a mini-Hagia Sophia.

    The Catholic tradition of First Friday Mass needs a revival, I think… say, EVERY Friday Mass. You could set up Eucharistic Adoration in the churches so that parishioners must be constantly present for the entire day.

  4. So how’s that Pacifism working for the French?
