World Monthly

France goes to the polls on Sunday. It’s between centrist Emmanuel Macron and far right candidate, Marine Le Pen. Le Pen, is a divorcé who considers herself a catholique de parvis (a Catholic just outside the walls). She doesn’t oppose abortion, but is in favour of rolling back gay marriage and IVF for gay couples. Macron is a Jesuit-educated liberal who supports same-sex marriage and immigration.
