Catholics fined over 'Jesus excrement' protest

Here's an incident that points out the hypocrisy of the West in how it handles religious groups.  In this case Catholics in France were fined for demonstrating their displeasure of an "art" exhibition that denigrates Jesus.  At the same time the French government remains silent when Muslins  call for the death of "non-believers" and riot in the streets.  It's obvious that the West has no problem suppressing Christians and others as opposed to their treatment of Muslims.  The reason of course is that Christians do not riot and self detonate while that is the preferred and universal response by Muslims over any trivial slight they may perceive. 

At the root of this difference is raw fear generated by Muslims through their incessant violence against any and all non-Muslims.  Political correctness, multiculturalism and politicians pandering for votes are what prevents the West from responding to the Muslim invasion out of fear of being branded "Islamophobes".  The Muslim street is playing a master hand in their jihad by playing off the "moderate" Muslim tactic of stealth jihad against the violence of "radicals".  The "moderates" scream and wail over every imagined slight and threaten that if they do not get their way, the "radicals" will wreak violence those who impede the global jihad.  The terrible truth is that combination is working and the West in moral decline for not defending it's culture and history.  In short, the Muslims are winning.  Until and unless the West throws off the hobbles of political correctness and multiculturalism we will continue to allow the Jihad to make us dhimmis.

Where will you be when the Jihad hits the street? 

Where are you doing to stop the invasion?


Catholics fined over 'Jesus excrement' protest

A group of Catholic protestors in France were fined thousands of euros on Friday for interrupting and throwing smoke bombs at a 'blasphemous' piece of theatre, which featured the face of Christ being covered in fake excrement.

The court in Paris convicted the 32 on charges of obstructing freedom of expression over the incident in October 2011.

The group had stormed into the Theatre de la Ville, on the banks of the Seine near Notre Dame Cathedral, during a performance of "On the Concept of the Face, Regarding the Son of God", directed by Italian Romeo Castellucci.

The protesters had climbed on the stage, chanted and shouted, with some throwing smoke bombs. Three of the protesters were fined between €1,500 and €2,000, and the others between €600 and €800.

Prosecutors had requested fines of up to €5,000 each. Their lawyers said they would appeal.

"It's a lot to pay for shit!" said a lawyer for the defendants, François Souchon, saying that his clients also had a right to freedom of expression.

A lawyer for the city of Paris, which had lodged a joint complaint with the theatre against the protesters, said the court's ruling was a victory for freedom of speech.

"This decision recognises the supremacy of access to public culture and the absolute right to freedom of expression," Alexis Gublin said.

The play was the story of an incontinent man being looked after by his son.

A copy of a huge portrait of Christ by Renaissance artist Antonello da Messina hung at the back of the stage and appeared to be covered in excrement near the end of the performance.

Catholic groups said the imagery was deeply offensive and demanded the play be cancelled, though the association of French Roman Catholic bishops condemned the disruptive protest.
