I left England debating whether it was a secular society, following an article in The Church Times by David Cameron. In France, I was interested to find that Bordeaux Cathedral closes for lunch. Would that decision be made by la Cathedrale or by l'Etat?

I have my suspicions about l'Etat considering the iconoclasm of the end of the 18th cent to say nothing of the banning of religion in favour of 'reason'.

It's France. Of course they shut for lunch. Don't forget that the modern day " poilu" when in the battlefield has a four course meal served twice a day....
