I am a free speech person like the next guy; however, there comes a point when one must just say … SHUT UP! Its bad enough that for the most part Jacques Chirac should usually remain silent but this takes the cake. Chirac actually does the right thing and orders the lowering of the French Flags in respect to the passing of Pope John Paul II.
The Unsa union said the government was guilty of double standards having ordered schools to take part in the tribute to a religious leader while having banned Muslim head scarves in state schools in a drive to keep schools firmly secular.
It couldn’t possibly be that this was done out of respect for the historical contribution that Pope John Paul II made in the ending of communism and not entirely for religious reasons could it?
Oh wait, these are communists complaining. I second then my previous thought, SHUT UP.
