Hmmm, Josselin, I share with you an open mind over many things (and
yet, you'd be surprised at the prejudices you have, that only someone
from another culture can point out). Even in the odd days when I feel
all superior, I realise that it's not for everyone, and that different
cultures have their own pace, and their own direction. And I respect
them, if I am in a multicultural forum, I watch my mouth.

The mission of Debian is not "spot the bigot". Debian embraces people
of many beliefs, customs and ways of life under one shared belief --
about an OS.
