Lunch between the French and Iranian leaders is CANCELLED after President Hollande refused to take wine off the menu for his meeting with Muslim counterpart Rouhani

Good for Hollande! The Vatican actually covered statues to appease the man. No – you don’t to go to other countries and demand their cultures be put on hold for your comfort any more than they get to do that to you. You don’t want wine, don’t drink it. A leader of a largely secular nation couldn’t get away with asking the Vatican to cover all religious items and not dress in those robes. Imagine if Hollande or any diplomat visited Iran and asked that wine be put ON the menu! Wouldn’t happen.
