May be offended was a strong word, it should read "concerned about the
attitude", it is a little hypocritical to ask "others" to respect your
culture while you are showing no respect to theirs, after all
LibreOffice users are not French immigrants who have to either accept
the French "ideals" or return back to their homes.

It is not about personal opinion, everyone is free to say whatever he
likes, but suggesting that it should be a project policy to accept only
culture X values and implying it is inherently superior than culture Y
values is no longer a personal opinion.
