Islamic Terror and "Charlie Hebdo": Archbishop Wants to Decriminalize Blasphemy

Archbishop Jean Grallet
(Paris) The terror attack in Paris was justified by the insult of Muhammad and executed in the name of Allah.  One day before the assassination religious leaders, including the Catholic Archbishop of Strasbourg, called for the decriminalization of the offense of blasphemy. 
" Blasphemy is directly opposed to the second commandment. It consists in uttering against God - inwardly or outwardly - words of hatred, reproach, or defiance; in speaking ill of God; in failing in respect toward him in one's speech; in misusing God's name. St. James condemns those "who blaspheme that honorable name [of Jesus] by which you are called. 78 The prohibition of blasphemy extends to language against Christ's Church, the saints, and sacred things. It is also blasphemous to make use of God's name to cover up criminal practices, to reduce peoples to servitude, to torture persons or put them to death. The misuse of God's name to commit a crime can provoke others to repudiate religion.
"Blasphemy contradicts the reverence owed ​​to God and his holy name. It is in itself a grave sin, "citing the Catechism of the Code of Canon Law , Canon 1369th

The Catechism does not apply to all Catholics?

Too bad that this only seems to apply to the Catechism today, but is no longer a part of the Catholic Church. Just one day before the Islamic attack on the editor of Charlie Hebdo in Paris, with remarkable timing, asked Archbishop Jean Pierre Grallet of Strasbourg along with Protestants, Jews and Muslims, the official deletion of blasphemy as a criminal offense in the Criminal Code. Such an offense no longer exists in secular France for a long time. Since the Alsace and German Lorraine was annexed in 1920 as a result of the First World War in France, there still exist continuity with parts of the German legal system.
The law currently in force provides for up to three years in prison for one  who  "incites a nuisance by blasphemy in public with offensive intent". In 2013, the  Ligue de Défense des Muslumans Judicial cited to this this penal provision in the Court of Strasbourg and display against cartoons of "Charlie Hebdo".
The procedure has been canceled due to formal errors. The Muslim League sees this lack of willingness to apply the law in force. For the rest of France, the offense against God since the time of the French Revolution is already no longer a criminal offense.

Archbishop Grallet: The Criminal Statute has Become "Obsolete"

A native of French Lorraine Franciscan, Archbishop Grallet, confirmed that among the representatives of the various religions "matured conviction for some time" was to demand the abolition of this charge because it has become "obsolete." "The Republic has sufficient means to invite us to mutual respect," Archbishop Grallet had explained. In it he reiterated with Abdellaq Nabaoui, deputy chairman of the Conseil régional du culte musulman (CRCM) in Alsace, who said he represented "the same line. What interests us is the freedom of expression." What some of his co-religionists think about it, you could see a few hours later in Paris.
The common demand was officially made during a hearing before the Observatoire de la laïcité raised in Paris. The "Monitoring Center of Secularism" is one of President François Hollande government agency launched initiatives   to monitor compliance with the strict separation of church and state. It reports directly to the Prime Minister. The president is the socialist politician Jean-Louis Bianco, who is also a European political adviser of his party.

Prosecution of blasphemy "an attack on freedom of speech"

Bianco and the other members of the "Monitoring Center" congratulated the religious leaders for the insight that it is "an exaggerated determination"  operative in the penal provision and this is an "attack on freedom of speech". Nicolas Cadène, the rapporteur of the "Monitoring Center" stressed that the religious leaders "have even suggested that we bring it to an end" because they consider the provision has "become obsolete". Nicolas Cadène, also a socialist, is a staff member of the cabinet of Environmental and Energy Minister Segolene Royal.
In the official opinion of the Observatoire de la laïcité  they name the "values" of "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity" as "one and indivisible, secular, democratic and social republic," in France. And it was brought simultaneously in comparison to the 2011 massacre of Anders Breivik.
A part of the Catholic Church, including the Archbishop of Strasbourg, holds it in common with the "Monitor" as it being "outdated"  to put the deliberate blasphemy to God under penalty, although Scripture, the Magisterium and the Tradition of the Church say otherwise. A view of the Catechism enough. Corrispondenza Romana commented on the events with an ironic rhetorical question: "Who knows if you will, sooner or later, reshuffle the cards in calling for the convening of an extraordinary Synod of Bishops?"

Consecrated Host Spit Out and Trampled on the Floor: Possible Jail Time

Edit: rather than put real Catholics in jail using the "Civil Law" as one priest recently suggested.  Why not put the bawds, pretenders, interfaith organizers and professional Catholics who are destroying the Faith in jail?

They will still throw you in jail Italy for insulting God.

(Cagliari) A thirteen-year-old girl was reported last Sunday to the police for insulting (the) Religion. The occasion was a desecration of the Host during Mass.

The girl had taken part in Holy Mass in Capoterra on the Mediterranean island of Sardinia which was celebrated in honor of the fallen of all wars. The girl received the Holy Communion, and returned to a group of young people. She stood in front of the and spat It on the floor and stepped on it. The incident sparkedthe greatest horror among the believers from surrounding. Why the girl has committed such a sacrilege is unclear.

Whether it was a gesture of vandalism or Satanism, or simply to a lack of awareness of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ, which is little appreciated today any more, could be clarified by the minister in direct conversation. A traditional priest has been working got the new evangelization in the parish of St. Elphisius Capoterra since 2010, in the decades previously it had been rather neglected by the progressive religious of an order in the "spirit of the Council".
