Soon, only the Gay Pride will be allowed to demonstrate publicly. As a French Catholic living in Paris, I’m increasingly worried about this totalitarian trend. People have the right to practice the religion they choose, in private and in public.

I suppose it’s because so many people think that “tolerance” means to legislate away things they don’t like, rather than actually tolerate them. I wonder when the war will begin.

The personal safety rights of all people should outweigh the cultural norms some portions of society seek to protect under the guise of “faith”. Your faith is not as important as another man’s civil rights. Fostering any tolerance for cultures that do not supplement current social safe-guards will not enable cultures to properly adapt to their new foreign environments.
