PRESIDENTIAL hopeful Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s anti-immigrant and anti-Europe Front National party, said on Friday that she was a devout Catholic but was currently at odds with the Church.

She was frustrated at “meddling” religious leaders telling followers who to vote for in the French election, which will see its first round of voting on Sunday April 23.

She told French Catholic daily La Croix: “I am extremely religious. But it’s true, I’m angry with the Church, because I think that it’s poking its nose into others’ affairs and not minding its own business.

“Members of France’s bishops’ conference tend to meddle in affairs that do not concern them by trying to influence voters’ political opinions and attitudes.”

She did not think religious officials should have the right to tell the French “who they should vote for” in the upcoming presidential election.

The current presidential front-runner did, however, add she would invite Pope Francis to the Elysée Palace in Paris if she wins the presidency “with great pleasure”.
