  1. Who in HELL would want to get married in France anyway? they don;t follow their own rules, and, the bureacracy would make your head explode. Not to mention the fees.

      Choosing not to marry is one thing, being denied the choice something different entirely.

      What a xenophobic stereotype.

    The long haul begins. The stupid comments from those on the right with their “it’s against nature” heckles cannot stand up to the government’s excellent and well thought out arguments for all French people to be treated the same, regardless of orientation.

    I’m certain this one will pass :-)

    1. Also President Hollande and his party are only doing what they promised to do if they won the elections last year which they did fair and square.

      So much for all the guff about marriage equality being “undemocratic”.

      It’s not often that you can do something that supports equality and democracy and also promotes the traditional values of life long monogamy and infuriates the right all in one go.

      Vive la France. Vive le marriage pour tous!

  3. “It also dropped other areas of the bill, which redefined marriage as “contracted between two persons of different sex or of the same sex”.”

    I’m not understanding this. So, it’s a “civil union” bill?

  4. Christiane Taubira was great today. Her speech was amazing. Civitas were outside praying again which was ironic seeing as praying in the streets is banned.
