Mosques taking over churches in FranceThe mosque invasion of churches in France has been going on for decades, but with the recent election of pro-Islam French President Emmanuel Macron and the attitude of entitlement of new Muslim immigrants, the tide is surging like never before.
“Many Muslim immigrants express a sentiment of entitlement, believing they – one day – will replace the natives and the land in which they are strangers will come under the authority of Islamic law,” WND reported.
In fact, Il Folgio Cultural Editor Giuliu Meotti stressed that mosques are going up in record numbers while Christian churches are being bulldozed to the ground on a regular basis.
“[Over the past 30 years, more mosques and Muslim prayer centers] have been built in France than all the Catholic churches built in the last century,” Meotti informed in a report published by the Gatestone Institute, which noted that French officials are now in the habit of demolishing old churches after the government appropriated all church property – as well as the maintenance cost – back in 1907. “[France has laws protecting old trees, but] the state is free to flatten old Christian churches [and] the vacuums created in the French landscape are already being filled by the booming mosques.”
Kicking out Christianity, inviting Islam
The Christian heritage of France is being swept away and replaced by facilities serving secular and Islamic interests.
“But local officials are reluctant to spend money on the buildings, so they are being turned in[to] activity centers, offices, apartments and even mosques – or, they simply are being demolished,” WND’s Amanda Poe reported. “France could lose 5,000 to 10,000 religious buildings by 2030, according to a report from the Observatory of Religious Heritage. Seven churches were demolished in France in 2016 alone.”
And the hostility toward Christian worship has been demonstrated by both Islamic terrorists and the French government.
“The same year, Father Jacques Hamel died at the hands of ISIS-allied terrorists at the foot of the altar while celebrating morning Mass in Normandy, France, [after serving] as a priest for almost six decades,” Poe recounted. “But just weeks after Hamel’s death, French police interrupted a Mass at the Church of Santa Rita, dragging priests out of the cathedral by their legs, to prepare for the church’s demolishment. It’s now a parking lot.”
The razing of Christian churches is a continuing process working toward the ultimate eradication of Christianity in France altogether.
What is life?
It is the flash of a firefly in the night, the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the sunset.
