Actress fined after attacking gays, Muslims in her book
PARIS - French actress-turned-animal rights activist Brigitte Bardot was convicted Thursday of inciting racial hatred and ordered to pay $6,000 — the fourth such fine for the former sex symbol since 1997.
The Paris court sentenced Bardot, 69, for remarks in her book “A Scream in the Silence,” an outspoken attack on gays, immigrants and the jobless that shocked France last year.
In the book, she laments the “Islamization of France” and the “underground and dangerous infiltration of Islam.”
“Mme. Bardot presents Muslims as barbaric and cruel invaders, responsible for terrorist acts and eager to dominate the French to the extent of wanting to exterminate them,” the court said.

you liberal nations like canada, belgium, etc claim to want rights but if anyone has other opinions you think are bad they are banned from being spoken then you turn around and condemn christians and others for wanting to ban or speaking against gays, promiscious sex, etc?
