  1. Maybe she should have been doing all she could then while her husband was in office.

    Her support is appreciated but could have come sooner.

  2. THANK YOU CARLA. It takes courage to speak out. It would have been easy to continue to remain silent.

    Thank you, Carla. She puts her hypocritcal serial adulterer husband and his party to shame. A man who couldn’t bring himself to stick his neck out a la David Cameron who knew it would receive a huge backlash from the religious nutters. It takes courage to do that and Sarkozy took the coward’s way out.

    For Carla, it’s better late than never, every influential voice counts.

  4. It really is the difference of knowledge and lack of said knowledge.

    I really hope children in high (and maybe primary, though a bit young) schools start getting taught about homosexuality.

    I feel it’s the only way to change current perceptions.

    1. Why on earth would primary school students be too young to learn that two men (or women) can get married and have a family?! Do you think that educating children about Gay people has to involve explicit descriptions of sexual practices?

  5. Given Bruni’s track record she’s not really likely to be an upholder of “traditional” marriage in the first place but, still, good for her for speaking out now – better late than never.

    I hope, she never ever will return to beautiful Parisian palace in the ‘rue de Saint-Honore’ as a ‘maitresse de maison’ . But I am not shore. This ‘dejavue’ still is very likely, especially today…
