Mineral water[edit]

Isn't La Croix also a brand of mineral water?

It is, and I believe that it's headquarters (and probably most of its distribution area) are in Texas. The ARK 03:44, Apr 21, 2005 (UTC)

AFP reporting[edit]

Much of La Croix's reporting on political and ecclesiatical affairs is done with the help of the Agence France-Presse. Since the AFP is far from being a Christian press agency, the newspaper is often filled with journalistic content that is deeply critical of the Roman Catholic Church in general and of conservative social and political views in particular.

French Catholicism is in general very liberal and very modernizing, to an extent that can be surprising (offputting?) to Catholics from other countries. I don't think that AFP is entirely to blame for these stances. --194.98.58.121 (talk) 11:49, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Vampire[edit]

"LaCroix is also the name of a Vampire in the video game Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines."

I have removed the Triva section containing the above because it is completely irrelevent. LaCroix and La Croix are the name of lots of things. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.195.77.105 (talk) 04:51, 4 June 2010 (UTC)

Muddled link with Catholic Action?[edit]

Why do we claim that La Croix is linked with the founding of Catholic Action, which seems to have been a mostly conservative organization that was set up in other countries in the 19th century? I think the actual connection may be with the French entity Action Catholique, which is more recent and later became associated with a liberation theology viewpoint.

Dreyfus Affair[edit]

Is this is the same periodical that was ferociously anti-Semitic in the 1890s and wanted the Jews "booted out of France"? Does anyone have any information on the subject?Campolongo (talk) 17:57, 11 April 2017 (UTC)
