Sounds like they’ll have the space to be bombarded with homophobia and disinformation from the Vatican and pals.
No country that has allowed equal marriage has escaped the wrath of the religious cults and their supporters. I didn’t expect France to be any different. Even with no state cult, they still make a lot of noise in an attempt to thwart the issue. There was a huge backlash in Spain before PM Zapatero pushed it through, but look what happened.
The vast majority of the Danish state church welcomed it, which is why they included church weddings.
“Nobody doubts [the reform] will become law, but all opinions – political, philosophical or religious – will be heard.”
I have on question for the prime minister: Why?
Why the hell should a secular government, considering a secular law, for a secular act (France does not have religious marriage), take into consideration ANY “religious opinions”?
the way i see it is they may well be heard but that doesnt mean they’ll be listened to heh perhaps though im being overly optimistic
I am kind of in agreement with the French President. However i think such treatment should be suspended indefinitely for everyone. There are far too many people on this planet, and there is a large amount of orphaned children, and children in care, that could use loving homes.
Why not go the whole hog and implement a one child policy like China :(
once a year each village could “donate” their children… to a sort of “games”… and they could fight to the death on television, with people betting on the outcome…
Everything is a matter of time, who remembers in 1999 when France introduced the PACS, confusion that was there, Today PACS is unanimity. And so it is with gay marriage
