111. The Catholic church is still pretty strong in France.
A really good movie, if you haven't seen it, is "Ma Vie En Rose". It's about a French family that moves to a conservative suburb and get completely ostracized because one of their kids likes to crossdress.

It draws a good contrast between the progressive younger couple and their older very Catholic neighbors. The older wife refuses to wear her hemline above the knee because "my husband wouldn't like it". Meanwhile her husband scopes all the younger more attractive women.

I suspect the same is true in France as in America- some people are very liberal and some people (who get a lot of press) are retrograde embarrassments.
