Trust the Jacobins to make a stance

French leftwingers are causing a flap for objecting to the lowering the Tricolore in tribute to the the Late Great One. They argue it's a question of separation of state and church. Especially after the ban on headscarves and other ostensibly religious symbols in public schools, it's quite hypocritical to honour a dead head of a church is such an ostensible state-sanctioned way.
The Most Serene Republic of Surfdale has also not lowered its flag because it does not recognise Vatican City as a sovereign State as it's an imposter that should be thrown out of any international body it currently sits in.
