  1. … and all of it relgiously inspired.

    And I thought religion was about love and peace…. Here we see the truth.

    It is about hate and violence.

    What an advert!

  3. Its human nature to up the pressure if you think you can win. It will all die off now especially as more and more countries come on board.

    The UK are getting some bigots thrashing around in parliament at the moment because it is coming up soon.

    One bigoted republican senator in Minnesota yesterday, Senator Hall is his name, claimed that equal marriage was causing “civil chaos” in Europe, whatever that means. No evidence to support his claim but suspect he was looking at the uncivil Manif pour Tous hate group perhaps. Hardly what I would call causing civil chaos, violence against gay people more like it. I’m surprised the spike in violence hasn’t provoked the opposition in the UK to using it as another tool to traduce equal marriage.

    Has anyone noticed the sudden lack of silence among the Catholic hierarchy in the UK since O’Brien’s demise?

  5. They will eventually find something else to be outraged over and protest about, they are french after all.

  6. The French are VERY good at protesting.

    About everything.

    I remember being stuck in traffic for 4 hours dues to the traffic chaos caused by a traffic wardens strike.

  7. My friends’ 14-year old daughter has just arrived at the home of a large family in Montpellier on a language study visit. The whole family are wearing anti-equal marriage t-shirts. My friends’ daughter is horrified and has asked us what she should do, bearing in mind she has to get through this.

    Suggestions?
