I guess that France does not have the equivalent of a first amendment. Our first amendment rights are pretty eroded in the US but if someone tried to ban praying in public the ACLU and the constitutionalists on the right and the left would be shouting that law down at the top of their lungs. Who ever proposed it might find they have no safe place to avoid media attention.

It's called mutual respect and peaceful coexistence.

Why don't we just give them this inch and let them pray on the bloody streets? Be the bigger men. And if they block our paths, let's just walk around them with a smile and a friendly nod. Because I've got a news flash for you. If we do it this time, next time it will be THEM who give US an inch. It's called mutual respect and peaceful coexistence.
