Saint Louis IX, King of France
By Allan Gillis
The Pew Research Center reveals that Islam is the second-most widely professed religion in France behind Catholic Christianity by number of worshippers. With an estimated total of 5 to 10 percent of the national population, France has the largest number of Muslims in Western Europe.
The Muslim share of Europe’s total population has been increasing steadily. In recent decades, the Muslim share of the population throughout Europe grew about 1 percentage point a decade, from 4% in 1990 to 6% in 2010. This pattern is expected to continue through 2030, when Muslims are projected to make up 8% of Europe’s population. Muslims are younger than other Europeans. In 2010, the median age of Muslims throughout Europe was 32, eight years younger than the median for all Europeans (40). By contrast, the median age of religiously unaffiliated people in Europe, including atheists, agnostics and those with no religion in particular, was 37. The median age of European Christians was 42. Muslims are making babies a lot faster and more often than Europeans anyway – so this shift will continue to bring Europe and especially France to a dangerous tipping point.
There are places all across Europe, including cities in France that are known as “No-Go Zones” – places where Muslim immigrants essentially rule the geographical territory and the local and federal governments have just relinquished jurisdiction – and non-Muslims know (or learn quickly) not to go there for fear of their life and limbs.
Historically, a nation or even a village – a society – protects itself from invaders that kill, rape and plunder the lives and goods of the society. There have evolved mechanisms like palisades, moats and walls, lookout towers to modern radar posts – giving warning of imminent hostile invaders. Invaders who may not share the same methods, history, ethics, language, customs – or religion. Invaders who mean all harm and tumult. Invaders who may fully intend and ascribe to a common modum which ultimately and corporately dictates death and destruction to their intended quary.
The French nation as well as all of Europe is the intended quary of the Muslim meme. I do not say that it is the quary of “radical Islam”. That is just a little piece of verbal chicanery – a pipe-dream. Islam in and of itself is “radical” as a religion as compared to the One True Religion… that of the Church of Jesus Christ. Politically, France has been poisoned by a leftist and most certainly self-destructive program of “internationalism”. “Diversity” is a mindset that is insidious as it undermines order, culture and religion.
France has historically been dubbed the “Eldest Daughter of The Church”. Sadly, she has been sorely unfaithful. She has been quite frankly, murderous in her revolution and concomitant anti-church legislative enactments locally and federally since 1789. It is of some significant import that she should be struck yesterday on the day commemorating Bastille Day. We know that the Muslims remember dates on the calendar – we know what September 11th meant to them historically as they hit us back on the day commemorating the Battle of Vienna in 1683.
When will France wake up and repent and return to the embrace of Mother Church? When will she stop this foolish national suicide-pact and restrict immigration? She may be lost without some quick, common sense leadership. Perhaps Marine Le Pen will prevail and lead France to some sanity.
Saint Denis pray with us for France!
Saint Louis IX, King of France pray with us for France!
