Hundreds of Thousands March in France (protest against homosexual marriage)
TTH ^ | 1/14/2013

Posted on 01/14/2013 3:40:35 PM PST by Altura Ct.

TIBERGE at Galliawatch reports that close to one million people marched in protest against homosexual marriage rights in Paris yesterday. The numbers are not certain, but there is good reason to believe this estimate. The streets were clogged with people bearing signs and wearing shirts with symbols of the traditional family. Here we have an unprecedented declaration of mass resistance to homosexual rights. This means not only that there is a very good chance homosexual “marriage” and adoption rights will never become a reality in France, but that the principle of equality that governs so much of political discourse and everyday life has received a serious blow — a blow that may cause many people to rethink or question its basic premises. Vive la France!

Amazing. Who would have expected France, of all places, to be the country to make a massive stand against the tide of moral degeneracy that has so weakened what’s left of Western civilization?

Wow. I seriously admire France for doing this.
If Americans had done this as soon the inmates started pushing their dysfunctional agenda here, we wouldn't have all those nut cases walking our streets today.
Kudos, France. Good job!

indeed the French have showed more balls than our side and that includes the cowards like Hannity etc who never mention anything about this issue on talk radio.
The cowards for the most part in the GOP who would rather be invited to the Hollywood and DC, North east elitist cocktail parites than represent us and stand for marriage.

Than there are so called conservatives who say they have no problem with it or just shut up when they hear a neighbor, friend, at work mention this issue.

I was at a surprise birthday party this weekend and this issue came up and said marriage is between one man and one woman.
Right away I got a glare from one woman but then another guy said he agreed, then another couple said they agreed, in the end there was just the one woman who wanted this turd poking sham marriage.

Later I was told of most of the people there of which I did not know that they agreed but thought they were the minority or they did not want to be called a name.

Our freedom of religion, guns, 10th amendment and 14th are all under attack and we have to stand up and speak up.

Are there only "homosexual rights"? Do none of the rest of us have "rights". I am a traditionalist where marriage is concerned. Do I have no rights?

Marriage has never be extended to people in same-sex relationships. But somehow, the media always puts this subject in the light of homosexuals not having "rights". They have NEVER been able to marry, ever! They are asking for a "right" that they have never had, in any society on Earth.

I am so tired of these people. I used to not care what they did; but, they had to keep shoving their stuff into my face and I had to make a decision on how I felt about stuff that I would prefer to not think about at all. Well, after thinking about it; I've decided that these are not very nice people, they are bullies, and I don't like them. Good job, gay activists.

Let’s not be too self-righteous — America definitely does not own the patent on morality.

ah you are like me. I never cared about them until they started with this marriage, adoption and special rights crap.

We have the religious freedom, THAT IS A RIGHT.
We have gun RIGHTS
We have the 10th amendment states rights which if DOMAN is overturned then why did millions vote on this in their state.
Also the 14th amendment under attack.

When will be go out and show this country and the world and th eleft we are not cowards and we stand for marriage.

Also what is this sign for traditional marriage as I;ll take it and use it too, I;m sick of this queer rainbow crap, on my time up in MA, I saw the church where both Adams Presidents are buried and there is a rainbow flag flying on it and right across the road from city hall and then there is a sign saying marriage equality.

WTH, enough is enough, and what;s the betting right now a certain judge on SCOTUS is being targeted again to give them their decision

I agree. So many so-called “conservative” pundits/writers have avoided this issue like the plague. It leaves me the impression that they are either too cowed by the power and weight of the ruling-class elites, or they indeed share the same deviant goals.

Which makes them either worthless cowards, or fellow-travelers with the social degenerates of the left. One of the reasons I’ve frankly dropped a lot of commentators.

This would be a very large number in the US but in a country much smaller than the States it is a MASSIVE showing.

Good for France. Very, very heartening.

Somehow Hannity doesn't strike me as a coward.

Agree heartily with everything else in your post.

Perhaps there is hope that they will turn back the anti-religion tide.

same here, I;ve had it with most of them, if they cannot mention social conservatice issues then they can piss off .

Like you said , they;re either cowards or they agree with it, either way they’re not worth my time.

What about the right for children to be raised by both a mother and a father?? The left is always proclaiming that they do everything “for the chilllldrun” then turn around and don’t care that little Billy and Susy will only know Joe and Steve as parents?? Billy and Suzy would never have a mommy and the left wants the State to endorse that?

The American equivalent would have been 4.5 to 5 MILLION marchers...wonder when Hollywood and the left will cal for a boycott of France? Wonder how many Muslims are in the crowd?

America gave up her morality years ago, we will reap what we have sown. Godspeed to the French for this.

most of our rights are extensions of our natural rights that are extensions of our nature as humans

marriage is not simply a tradition, it extends from the natural fact that only a man and a woman can together, naturally, produce a child, and as a consequence of that natural fact the naturally best place for the raising of children is with a child’s natural mother and father

as a civilization can we allow legal alternatives in the raising of children?

yes we can and we do - we allow adoptions and we even allow modern means of assisting conception, and we admit that when a parent is lost or when a marriage fails, a single parent can sometimes do a good job of raising a child/the children

does any of that mean that we must, by some sort of “right” allow ANY exceptions to the natural ideal that we are asked to make?

NO; there is no NATURAL human or civil right to the raising of children that does not reflect the nature of the human child - conceived by one man and one woman.

A very prominent British actor was interviewed on the BBC today. He’s “gay”. Part of the interview included the host asking him about the public attacks against him because of his views about “gay marriage” (he’s not for it) and “gays” adopting children (the worst place for a child in his view). There is no tolerance for honesty among Liberals.

God is in our midst, working goodness through those of us who open our hearts to understand his will. God seems to work from where one would least expect it, it is how he shows those with heart and intellectual capacity that he is behind these wonderful works...

I think it was; though i did not come in on the beginning of it and did not watch all of it.
