Getting rid of the Latin?

Because it is
- the language of the Church
- the language of Roman law

Would there be a more "modern" language, "more compatible" with sharia?

They keep saying that Latin is dead. Phasing out Latin, to give way to what(?)
Any forces at work here?

A new book "Without The Latin" (French) insists on the necessity of keeping the Latin alive.

"Without Latin, French is heading into a foreign desert. Without the latin, we will be suffering from ammnesia of a heritage which nevertheless is ours."

High circles' Christmas in Morocco

La France, Pays des droits de l'Homme, the Land of Human Rights, now has a

New, minister of Women's rights in the French government Najat Vallaud-Belkacem,
honored by His Majesty(...) the king

Why choose a minister of a single French citizenship, when you can have a two-in-one, French and Moroccan?

Btw, who decides who is going to be a minister i France?
