The following brief clip from French TV quotes the reaction of the mayor of Beaucaire, Julien Sanchez (Front National) to a demand that public schools stop serving pork, out of deference to their Muslim students.
Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:00||I’m not afraid of anybody|
|00:04||and I don’t want to exclude anyone.|
|00:08||I am only saying: what is the problem with pork? Is there a particular allergy?|
|00:12||If there were a medical problem I could understand it, but there is no medical problem. It’s only|
|00:16||an intrusion of a religious fact in the school space. And for me the school is a sanctuary.|
|00:20||One shouldn’t make religious matters enter the school space;|
|00:24||and therefore no substitution meals.
