Philosopher Henri-Lévy: Catholicism is the most Assaulted Religion

Bernard Henri-Lévy, French philosopher and writer: "In France, one talks a lot of violations of Jewish cemeteries and Muslims, but no one knows that the graves of Catholics are frequently desecrated. There is a kind of anti-clericalism in France that is absolutely not right. We have the right to criticize religions, but the religion the more assaulted today is the Catholic religion (...) much more than Islam. Intellectuals take the defense of Muslims. The defense of Catholics, much less.”

“The Pope's voice is extremely important. We are very unfair with this Pope. I am not Catholic, but I think there are prejudices. Above all, there is a primary anti-Catholicism that takes on enormous proportions in Europe."
