    Le Figaro has estimated that since François Hollande’s government legalised pseudo-marriage for homosexuals the French police have brutalised and arrested over 1000 pro-family demonstrators, with 500 detentions.  Gregor Puppinck, a Human Rights lawyer for the European Center for Law and justice (ECLJ), has filed complaints against France in the UN Human Rights Council for brutalizing peaceful demonstrators. Videos show French police beating marriage demonstrators, using tear gas and clubs against women, men, elderly and children.Here is video of Police brutality against women, men, elderly and children seeking to peacefully defend the family against gay marriage: reports:‘French authorities have decided pro-family demonstratos are a...

    Analysis March 25, 2013 ( - According to organizers, nearly one and a half million people joined the third demonstration in five months against the legalization of same-sex “marriage” by the French government in Paris, on Sunday. Meanwhile, large numbers of demonstrators who were unable to join the main venue – which had filled up by 3 p.m. – or who headed straight to the largest and most prestigious Parisian thoroughfare, the Champs-Elysées, were sprayed with tear-gas and beaten as they neared the presidential palace. Victims included children as young as 6 years old, elderly gentlemen, women of all...

    The European Union has published a school calendar that omits Christian holidays, like Christmas and Easter, while noting significant Jewish and Muslim celebrations. Three million copies have reportedly been printed of the calendar, which will be given out freely to students who request it from the union's 27 member countries. The Catholic News Agency reports that former French politician and government minister Christine Boutin noted the omission of Christian holidays in a Jan. 11 blog post, saying the calendar slights "the religion practiced or recognized as forming the cultural assembly of our 'old' continent." She wrote that Christianity has "fallen...

    Strasbourg, France, Jan 14, 2011 / 02:11 pm (CNA).- A 2011-2012 school calendar published by the European Union has omitted Christian holidays, while continuing to note important Jewish and Muslim celebrations. The European Union has printed three million copies of the calendar which will be distributed free-of-charge to students who request them. Former French politician and government minister, Christine Boutin, wrote in her blog Jan. 11 that the calendar leaves out Christianity, “the religion practiced or recognized as forming the cultural assembly of our ‘old’ continent.” Boutin is a consultant for the Pontifical Council for the Family, as well as...

    It took six months for Liberation journalist Ondine Millot to get to the truth about the most sordid side of France's housing crisis. Look through some property websites and you can see the advertisements: the phrase you are looking for is contre services - when a room in an apartment is offered, sometimes "free", in exchange for services. Sometimes the service is perfectly innocent - cleaning the apartment or washing clothes, to defray some of the high cost of renting property. But sometimes it is not: instead the requests are sexual, demeaning, bordering on the perverse. "Sex twice a month,"...
  • French official suggested Bush was behind September 11

    PARIS (Reuters) - A senior French politician, now a minister in President Nicolas Sarkozy's government, suggested last year that U.S. President George W. Bush might have been behind the September 11, 2001 attacks, according to a website. The website, which promotes September 11 conspiracy theories, has posted a video clip of French Housing Minister Christine Boutin appearing to question that Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda group orchestrated the attacks. Boutin's office sought to play down the remarks. Asked in an interview last November, before she became minister, whether she thought Bush might be behind the attacks, Boutin says: "I...

    The country is at a crossroads, a different kind of place from where we've been before. The special interests seem more reactionary and entrenched than ever, the bureaucracies much larger. We need to marshal the courage to change, and we need to understand what needs changing. Two books guide my thoughts these days. One is " Testimony: France in the Twenty-First Century," by the new French president, Nicolas Sarkozy. The second is American: " The Forgotten Man: A New History of the Great Depression," by Amity Shlaes. Together they form a map for the crossroads. Start with the will to...

    Officially, it is "not a message" addressed to the new French authorities. But stated by the number two person in the State Department, in Paris, the same day as the inauguration of Nicolas Sarkozy, these comments inevitably sound like a warning addressed to the new French president. John Negroponte appealed to France to keep its troops in Afghanistan, thus responding to Nicolas Sarkozy's statements that had implicitly advocated their eventual withdrawal. "It is important that all our allies, including France, recognize the importance of staying together and united in Afghanistan. Each country makes a decisive contribution to our ability to...

    A minister of "social housing" of Sarkozy's government since May 18, 2007, French right-wing woman Christine Boutin is in the middle of a scandal after bloggers found an interview of her, dated November 2006, where she supports the conspiracy theorists calling 9/11 "an inside job". Here is the transcript : Young French idiot - "I wish to talk about the Bush government and its threat for democracy. Do you think Bush could be behind the 9/11 ?" Minister Christine Boutin - "I think it is possible. I think it is possible and I know that the website which run these...

    Comedians say gag is no laughing matter From Charles Bremner in Paris FRENCH comedians, worried that they might be out of a job, sided with freedom-of-speech advocates yesterday after Parliament passed a law that makes it an imprisonable offence to insult homosexuals and women. Jokes about blondes, La Cage aux Folles — the hit show and film about camp gays — and even the Old Testament could be banned under the law, suggested critics who said that political correctness was running riot in France. “We are plunging ever more into le politiquement correct,” Laurent Ruquier, a star television comedian, said,...
