Religious freedom experts are decrying a recent announcement by the French government that it will deport and dissolve groups that are labeled extreme and appear to suffer from religious pathology.
At a Dec. 11 conference, French interior minister Manuel Valls announced that new government surveillance policies will be aimed at shutting down religious groups including traditionalist Catholics if they show signs of a religious pathology that could lead to violence, reported Reuters.
The conference was held two days after French president François Hollande announced the creation of a new agency, the National Observatory of Secularism, to observe and promote secularism in the nation.

The agency will also propose ways to promote secular values in schools. Education minister Vincent Peillon said this education must renew an emphasis on the French values of equality and fraternity.Making secularism the state religion and arbiter of good and evil? What does this sound like . . . ? Oh da, tovarishch . . .
Peillon told a French newspaper that secularism is not about simple tolerance but is instead about understanding what is right and being able to distinguish good from evil.
I’m much more concerned about secular pathology.
“groups that are labeled extreme and appear to suffer from religious pathology.
That description fits one particular group very well. The question is, will they deport them?
The socialists? Deport? Is it in their vocabulary?
In 1790 we installed THREE AMENDMENTS to our Constitution to make sure anyone like Louis XIV had best watch out because Americans don't do that stuff.
Time for the French people show us they are deserving of freedom ~ they must rise up and throw off the tyrant!
And this time NO THERMIDOR
A Frenchman of my acquaintance assures me that at the end of the day, the French will have no compunction about rounding up the Muslims, and putting them on trains to Turkey.
BTW, this is Hollande, not a normal person. He means YOU, not them!
Religions pathology? They mean Islam but they leave it undefined which gives communists the green light to harm what Christians are remaining in France. In the meantime, the Muslim jihadists will get out from under the “pathology” defination. We’ve been fooled by this scam before.
There is a french youth movement going on (Bloc Identitaire) FB. You can see all their rallies...into Germany as well fighting left-wing oppression & Islamic Immigration. They use alot of flaming torches and smoke bombs there...Great photos too.They are waving the Gadsden flag...
Maybe we can bring in this group of “new immigrants” under a resettlement program.
