Civilised Beheadings

This is the crisis that faces the non-Christian state—or, as in this the case of France, the post-Christian atheist state:
A controversial French comedian is facing charges for comparing the killing of US journalist James Foley to French Revolution beheadings and therefore an “access to civilisation” for his murderers.
Where is he wrong? Civilisation is full to the brim with be-headings. Two recent empires were literally built on “pyramids of skulls.” The French are screaming against be-heading, yet it is what got them their Republic?

Since civilisation is merely humans being humans, even rape of little girls is part of it, and has been used to great effect. Humans are incapable of a holy standard apart from explicit submission of their state to Christianity. There is no alternative.
