French Housing Minister upsets Cathloic Church
The French Housing Minister, Cécile Duflot, has upset Catholics and the Church hierarchy by threatening to requisition Church owned property to provide shelter for homeless people this winter. The Catholics are now whining and whinging about how persecuted they are !

I'd have thought they could have turned this into an easy win by offering up some token properties, thereby generating some great PR. Strange that they've chosen to use the defensive/victimisation/attack strategy, even coining a new word "Catholophobia" and claiming it's punishment for them being against the Government plans to allow same sex marriages.

[ I couldn't find any English language links, but here's one in French for anyone interested http://sciencesetavenir.nouvelobs.com/to...-abri.html ]

Cathlophonia? I don't fear Catholics, I fear what Catholic politics do.

Between the Mormon polygamy thread, this and Unicorn lairs I am at a loss for human kind today. It's such a struggle to progress and we're struggling against the stupidest things. Sad Ugh.

The French Government quarrelling with the Catholic Church! Ah, it feels comfortable to know that there still are certainties in this world!

Well, unused property and parish centers (if they still actually exist in France) could be used for such purposes. It seems quite fitting, and Church leaders in my country have even opened their episcopal palaces for the homeless. But actual churches, that seems a bit imprudent.

Is anyone else beginning to think that the Catholic church wants to be hated? I mean, they seem to put a lot of effort into being as unpopular as hell.

Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

They hired one from Fox News, (of course) last Summer to sit at the table with the mucky mucks.
Doesn't seems to have worked.

Poor Catholics, these rich French bastards want to take away their property... Shame on them, who cares about homeless people, if they give them shelter, then they will no longer be homeless, and we all need homeless people because we all know that only one thing is certain ...
