Thousands march against homosexual marriage bill . . . in France

 

Anti-gay marriage protesters rally in Paris

 

housands of Catholics and other opponents of French government plans to legalise gay marriage and same-sex adoption marched in Paris on Sunday, a day after more than 100,000 turned out across France for the cause.

The rally, organised by conservative Catholic group Civitas, was marred by accusations that journalists covering the rally and topless counter-protesters partially dressed as nuns had been roughed up by demonstrators. . . .

Among the banners being held by demonstrators was a large one reading: “France needs children, not homosexuals.” . . .

“Our objective is to wage a real battle to protect the family and child,” Civitas official Alain Escada said.

He claimed gay marriage was “a Pandora’s box” that would let others demand extended marriage rights, including polygamists and incestuous people. . . .

Bertrand de la Buharaye, a pensioner from Dinan in northern France who came to the rally on a Civitas chartered bus, said: “A child can not flourish normally without a father and a mother. It’s against nature.”

“A child can not flourish normally without a father and a mother. It’s against nature.”

Unfortunately for the pensioner quoted, all the evidence to date suggest that children do, in fact, flourish with same sex parents.

It surprised me too. Actually I was surprised by the anti-gay protests in that country as well.

Wow I did not expect that!
I agree with the pensioner from Dinan, it is most certainly against nature. Normal is being redefined across the spectrum of civilized society at an ever increasing pace.
