Violence by catholics against Femen
A counter demonstration by the activist group Femen, against a march by hard line catholics protesting the proposal by the French government to allow same sex marriages, was the target of physical violence and verbal abuse yesterday in Paris. Journalists and photographers were also assaulted by the catholic demonstrators. So now it's clear that muslim groups aren't the only ones cabable of fanatical violence when faced with any criticism of their beliefs !

The reason given by Femen for their, admittedly, provocative action, is that a religious group should not be allowed to influence the debate on a secular subject. This is, I'm pleased to say, a position that is not considered at all scandalous in France. From what I read elsewhere on the Forums this doesn't seem to be the case everywhere !

As a sideline observation, I've noticed that most of the English language coverage of this event that I've found seems very circumspect about the level of violence suffered by these women, or who exactly perpetrated it. The French language coverage is generally much more unequivocal, clearly putting blame on the catholic organisation behind Sunday's march.

RE: Violence by catholics against Femen
I'm just a simple guy. Let people who love each other marry each other if they want to. Who does it really harm?

But whether you're for or against gay marriage, for God's sake, don't attack these protesters - what this old stinking world needs is more topless women marching. Everywhere. All the time. Don't attack them; feed them and support them and invite them to your hometown!

They're no good in my home. They like the ladies so they have no use for me. So, I'll just sit back and watch them march on by.

Unless they do windows? Nah, probably not...

I was just speaking about topless women in general...and so what if they are lesbians? I can still admire their busty baggage. I'd host topless women in my home as long as they didn't wreck my shit, sexual orientation be damned. Big Grin

Amateurs.

You wait until the topless women are attacked then you dash out of nowhere and save them like a white knight. Then they shower you with admiration (among other things).

They're feminists. It doesn't work that way.

You dash out of nowhere and try to save them, but they beat you into a bloody pulp for your chauvinistic refusal to allow them to step up and fight their own battles. As they grind you beneath their jackbooted low heels, they smile a smug grin of satisfaction at putting another man in his rightful place.

Save your showers (of admiration or whatever) for the ladies who actually give a damn about you.

(I say this with the greatest of respect for feminists everywhere, some of my best friends are feminists, as is my daughter, and I even took a feminist class in college and it was NOT because a frat buddy told me it was a great class to meet chicks).

That's why you have armor and a horse. Also who says I won't enjoy the beating?

As I remember it, the white knight gets all the glory. I don't remember even one fairy tale about the black-and-blue knight...

Each to his own. But I'm beginning to think you're the quixotic knight tilting at windmills here.
