Tens of thousands of people protested against France’s new gay marriage law in central Paris on Sunday.

The law came into force over a week ago, but organizers decided to go ahead with the long-planned demonstration to show their continued opposition as well as their frustration with President François Hollande, who had made legalizing gay marriage one of his keynote campaign pledges in last year’s election. …

Homosexual activists are on the march around the world, not just in America. Or in certain parts of the world. Some parts of the world, such as the Arab/Islamic world, are still distinctly unfriendly to homosexuality.

Such laws won’t last too long. The upcoming Muslim majorities in Europe will see to that.

They are a bit late now in the game..though I understood thousands came out beforehand to oppose same sex marriage....and more than once....but this does not and won’t change what’s been done...it never does. It’s law now...end of story...and if the people didn’t want it they should have been more attentive to who they put in office.

Once again, there may be an opposing majority on issues...but on voting they’re as dumb as a bag of rocks.

It should be noted that when the gays protest loudly they clearly identify themselves as gays. That fact is noted for future use by upcoming regime security officials.

I have a feeling this could be one of the first countries to have homosexual marriage, and then see it repealed by the next government.
The left in France is deflated. The wind is behind the right.

Most of Africa and Eastern Europe greatly dislike the practice as well.

The USA is supposed to be the country with all of the “religious puritans”, so why is it that the French can organize a massive protest against sodomy but we can’t?

Witness what happened in California. The names of people who donated to Prop 8 were outed and vilified.

France is more in an uproar over this than the USA.

So much for the “religious right” liberal bogeyman, eh?

Yup, I’d think the gay lobby (some of the grimmest people on this earth, so the name is an oxymoron) believed the very libertine France to be a pushover, and didn’t bother to try to jam any Christian right. They miscalculated.

Not that I advocate such things (the usual suggested cures are as wacked out as the disease, this being an advanced plan of Satan, not just a casual trick) but I wonder how many Frenchmen are saying the equivalent of “drop them from the Eiffel tower”?

Hollande, who had made legalizing gay marriage one of his keynote campaign pledges

Hollande can make legalizing unicorns a priority too, but that will not change reality either. It will just create legal confusion.

How do you say ‘bigots’ and ‘homophobes’ in French? About half of France deplores gay marriage it would seem.

I think they’re actually both the same in French and English, but I could be wrong.

Exactly. The Lavender Mafia uses strong-arm tactics and real bullying to hammer all who oppose them. There is a way to defeat them, but how is it done?
