A mayor in France is carrying out one of the policies of the National Front Party as expressed by the Party’s leader Marine Le Pen earlier this year, as Shoebat.com reported. Beginning on the first day of the year, Muslim students will not be given an alternative to pork when pork is on the lunch menu.
A mayor in France has stirred up a hornet’s nest by deciding Muslim pupils at the local school will not be given an alternative meal to pork. The mayor has justified his stance by claiming it’s in the name of secularism.
Another week in France and another row has broken out surrounding secularism or laïcité as it’s is called.
After town halls were told to remove nativity scenes because they were against the principle of “laicïté” one mayor in the south of France has used the same argument to justify “a pork or nothing” policy in his school.
From January 1st pupils in the little town of Sargé-lès-Le Mans in the Sarthe department of north-western France will not be offered a substitute meal if they don’t eat pork.
This will affect the 15 Muslim pupils in the school who cannot eat pork because it against the dietary rules of their religion. Eating pork is also against the rules of the Jewish religion but it is not believed there are any Jewish pupils at the school.
Mayor Marcel Mortreau says his decision is based on the “principle of Republican neutrality”.
Many of the societies that are standing up to Islamic invasions, whether in China or Europe, seem to be doing so in the name of secularism. It’d be nice to see them start doing so in the name of their Judeo-Christian heritage and roots.
