    The Archbishop of Strasbourg has decided to challenge the politically correct, which include most of the representatives of the French Catholic Church. “Abortion is not only conceded but promoted,” Ravel told the Dernières nouvelles d’Alsace, a French regional daily.

    “It’s a promotion and I can not accept it, not just as a question of faith but because I love France,” he added.

    The archbishop, who graduated from the prestigious institution of higher learning, the École polytechnique did not hesitate to reference “the Great Replacement”, the famous expression used by the French author Renaud Camus.

    “Muslim believers know very well that their fertility is such today, that they call it … the Great Replacement. They tell you in a very calm, very positive way: One day all this, all this will be ours … “, said the former bishop of the Armies and son of general.

    Bishop Ravel, the new archbishop of Strasbourg, has at least taken note of the “Great Replacement”.

    In 2015, Ravel had already aroused controversy by penning an editorial just after the January terror attacks in France, in which he denounced the “terrorists of thought, prescribers of laity, worshipers of the Republic”, while contrasting the 17 victims of terrorism to the 200 000 victims of abortion.

    The sovereignist candidate who stood with Marine Le Pen in the recent presidential election, Nicolas Dupont-Aignan, has also alluded to the Great Replacement at the beginning of the year.

    “The most recent immigration figures, when compared to national demographics, clearly represent a replacement dynamic: most of the entrants are between 20 and 30 years of age, and if only 227 550 official entries and 47 000 “refugees” are counted without the illegal numbers, it comes to 274 550 people in 2016. Compared to the 750 000 people per generation we have over 20-30 years! Our annual legal and semi-clandestine inflows represent the equivalent of 36 percent of an annual generation,” Dupont-Aignan said.

    “The French should no longer be intimidated by the Doctor Gribouille [naive idiots] of immigration, good souls of the left who often live in the central districts of the rich French cities, far from the ghettos and outlying districts which have become no-gozones because of their discourse is as irresponsible as it is moralising,” he added.

    Sweden: Immigrant child rapist commits 600 crimes – avoids deportation

He was found guilty of repeated aggravated child rape, the aggravated sexual abuse of a child, assault and unlawful threats.
