White Christians get uppity over picture in France

What’s going on France these days, besides making sure that women only wear French-approved clothing?

Christians are on the rampage after an art exhibit dubbed “Immersion” offended white people’s sensibilities.

Proudly secular countries will always declare that nothing is sacred, and even religion can be made fun of, after all thats where freedom of speech and expression come into it. So when Muslims protested against the cartoons of the Prophet SAW we were told it was a freedom of speech issue, yet uppity Christians can attack with hammers and destroy the picture under the guise of an “anti-blasphemy” campaign by French Catholic fundamentalists in the southern city of Avignon.

This particular vandalism took place a day after a large protest supported by the far-right political party Front National and Civitas, “a lobby group that says it aims to re-Christianize France,” and in the larger context of President Nicolas Sarkozy’s increasingly right-wing (and anti-Muslim) rhetoric.

But, who knows, maybe the French were just mad that one of their paintings got vandalised and felt the need to retaliate?
