French protest gay marriage







http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...es-France.html

Three hundred thousand people today took to the streets of Paris to protest against gay marriage in France.

The massive turnout was in response to plans by Socialist President Francois Hollande to enact a same-sex marriage law by June.

Around five TGV high-speed trains were specially hired to bring people to the ‘Demo for All’ from provincial towns, along with up to 1000 coaches.

Organisers insisted it was pro-marriage, rather than anti-gay, but riot police were on the street after Civitas, a far-right Catholic group whose protests have been openly anti-homosexual, held a rival march.

Between 50 and 88 per cent of people living in France are Roman Catholics, and conservative opposition to the proposed legislation has been enormous.

‘We want this draft law to be withdrawn,’ said protest organiser Patricia Soullier.

Police estimated that more than 300,000 people joined the march at three points, before they all converged on the Eiffel Tower.

Freezing temperatures and driving rain kept the numbers down, said a police spokesman, who reported no arrests.

Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois, head of the Catholic Church in France, is leading the opposition to gay marriage, along with Muslim, Jewish, Protestant and Orthodox Christian leaders.

At least eight Catholic bishops were on the march.

Mr Hollande, who has a large majority in Parliament, angered many opponents by trying to slip the reform through with next to no public debate.

His clumsy handling of other promises, including a 75 per cent top tax rate on the rich that was ruled unconstitutional, has angered thousands.

Mr Hollande has never been married either, and currently lives with his girlfriend, the Paris Match magazine journalist Valerie Trierweiler – an arrangement which has also angered traditionalists.

Recent opinion polls suggest that support for homosexual marriages in France is less than 55 per cent, and less than 50 per cent want homosexuals to have adoption rights.

Re: French protest against gay marriage

Disgusting.

Are families inside a straight marriage even the norm in any country?!

Again disgusting.

You find bigots everywhere. It seems égalité is not that important to these protesters.

Re: French protest against gay marriage

Women that protest against gay marriage are the usual ones that think that a woman's only job is to get married.

Re: French protest against gay marriage

So many of those protesters pictured are young - not the sort I thought would be bothered. I don't know why people get so bothered by other people getting married.

Re: French protest against gay marriage

Ehh the socialist government recently elected were elected with a gay marriage platform. The majority in France want gay marriage and were frustrated with Sarkozys stance.

You Europe bashing obsession is ridiculous.

Shipped in says it all. Not suprised by the turn out either, protests are generally well attended in France. The measure will pass anyway.

Re: French protest against gay marriage

I thought evil socialist governments always took away freedom of speech and killed everyone who disagreed with them. Oh, and also everyone was poor and couldn't possibly afford to hire high-speed trains with private funds. Oh, and there was no religion, either.

Is this your way of coming out in support of the evil socialist Obama?
