    Never the supression of freedom of opinion has made a peaceful society. The procedure of the French Administration is, especially seen with its glorious history, the still existing pride of the 1789 Revolution, ashaming. Starting his stay in prison they even had thrown Nicolas into a space with no daylight. Maybe the French adminsitration, which means the leftist responsables of politics, are on their way back to the non-glorious days of Robbespierre. As to their Bastille-Mind the western society should awake, show concern and sign the petition for Libération de Nicolas!

    Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the UN,

    since the end of 2012, France is concerned about a major social issue: the opening of marriage to homosexual couples.
    Much of the French peacefully opposes this law.
    To date, more than 500 peaceful demonstrators were detained, put in custody for periods of up to two days, without any reproach legal basis is presented to them. Peaceful French are arrested by police and detained in custody simply because they wear clothing with the logo of the demonstrators.
    Last week, a 23 year old student was arrested and subjected to physical violence police. It was held this Thursday, June 20, 2013 for giving a false identity to police who stopped for no reason, and for refusing a DNA sample. He was sentenced to two months in prison. He is in prison for giving a false name to a police officer, who, instead of protecting him, hit him!

    France is trying to switch from democracy to a totalitarian state.
    France is no longer a rule of law according to the criteria of the UN.
    France does not comply with Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights: "No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile."
    France does not comply with Article 19 of the UDHR: "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression, which includes the right not to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information regardless of frontiers, information and ideas through any media whatsoever. "

    Mr. Secretary General, we ask you solemnly today to involve the UN offices in France to help him out of this shift towards totalitarianism, to help find a peaceful solution to the deprivation freedom of expression, and to help revive its image beacon of human rights.
    We ask you to enter the Group Coordination and the rule of law (which could include the France as a country to study in the next Common Strategic Plan). We ask you to enter the High Commissioner for Human Rights, for inspection in France, faster.

    Law is no longer an action for France to respect freedom of expression, we rely on your diligence to help us.

    Waiting for your help, please accept, Sir, the assurances of our respectful consideration,

    Vincent Salette
    President of Vannes to starboard party.

    Persecution is heading down the track right at us, at our families, our children, our grandchildren. We absolutely must become once again the Church Militant, embrace the wisdom of our Counter Reformation forefathers and institute a new Counter Secularization Church modelled on them, regarding ourselves once again as 'soldiers of Christ'. The time for modernist liberal theology is over. It has brought nothing but decay, desolation, demoralization and now persecution.

    If a kid could be facing jail time for wearing an NRA t-shirt in Socialist America, this will be happening here too.

    The anti-marriage will soon realize that what they've started in France will soon snowball into a cultural/religious revolution. Since they've convicted Nicolas, they may as well sign new contracts for construction of new prisons. They surely need more rooms to accommodate future demonstrators

    So those who are fighting for the dignity of people, for right to life from conception until natural death, for marriage, are being called now enemies of humanity...

    Today is the feast of St Irenaeus who said that truth is public, unifying and pneumatic. Instead of railing against the evil government, and doing exactly what the public media is accused of doing. The Christian way might be to demonstrate how truth is public, unifying and pneumatic. How about telling the love stories of real people who live the truth of marriage? The Church has always had those who call others names and use fear as a tactic but that is not the way of Jesus. His way is a way of love which is both compassionate and challenging as Bernard of Claiarvaux demonstrates in his letters.

    Reading the letters responding to articles about issues of marriage, I wonder where are the Gospel values? Are we responding from the contemplation of the great mystery of God's love for all?

    They arrest a student for protesting against sodomy and sodomites.

    Would they arrest God for destroying Sodom and Gomorrah for the crime of sodomy?
    (Gen. 19:5-8; Lev. 18:22-23; Lev. 20:13; 1 Tim. 1:9-10; Rom. 1:26-27; Jude 7)

    I stand with God, and I'm not only willing to suffer, but EXPECT to suffer, at the hands of men for my stance.
