Living Up To Your Creed

It seems to me, especially in light of the recent moves by the French parliament to limit the free exercise of religious practices by muslims in France, that the French government is in no position to point the finger at the Chinese government over Chinese indignation regarding the recent award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Chinese dissident Liu Xiaobo. Whatever readers may think of Chinese policy, it pales in comparison with the disgusting and hypocritical contempt exemplified by the dichotomy of current French policy regarding the burqa and the French call for freedom of conscious for Liu Xiaobo.

Of course, this is no different than the contempt of the government of the United States of America, which it regularly demonstrates toward its own constitution.
