Skip to comments.Senate Says “I Do”: France Moves Closer to Same-Sex Marriage
Posted on 04/11/2013 6:07:05 PM PDT by Olog-hai
Following months of protests both for and against the measure, the French Senate on Tuesday night passed an important provision in a package of laws that would legalize same-sex marriage in the country. The vote is a political win for embattled President Hollande.
Following a 10-hour debate, the Senate voted 179 to 157 in favor of an article allowing gay and lesbian couples to wed. The law will only go into effect once the Senate approves all of its component parts. A further article still pending approval would allow gay married couples in the country to adopt. The first article passed on Tuesday, however, was the most important and virtually assures the legalization of gay marriage in the country.
Gay and lesbian couples in France have been allowed to enter into civil unions since 1999. The new law, however, would place them on the same level as heterosexual couples when it comes to taxation, adoption and other areas.

Awwwwwwww. Did they think we were kidding when we warned them about them?
Well don’t look to us to help, get some rainbow flags and fight them yourself.
Wait til it happens here. And it will.
France will make a nice magnet to attract America’s turd pokers. Anything that gets them out of here..
Gay “marriage” is already legal in Greece, right? I mean, they’ve always been into poop sex in that place, I believe.
