PARIS – Tens of thousands of people supporting the Socialist government’s plan to legalize same-sex marriage and adoptions in France have marched in a Paris demonstration.

President Francois Hollande has said he would enact his “marriage for everyone” plan within a year of taking office last May. The text will go to parliament next month. But vocal opposition from religious leaders, some politicians and parts of rural France has divided the country.

Estimates of those in Sunday’s peaceful march ranged from 60,000 to 150,000 with banners reading “A Gay Marriage Is Better Than A Sad One” or “Single, Free in Solidarity.”

The words “equality” and “choice” dominated the march of male and female couples, children and supporters.

    When a disaster strikes again,they don’t know who and what to blame but continue to live on with their disastrous sentiments expressed in happiness.Sexual pervertions are not of God therefore they’re on their own.

    it’s here and now. 
    the world agenda is to make the abnormal the new normal; 
    1) drugs; 
    2) same-sex marriage; 
    3) man-beast union; 
    4) prostitution; 
    5) pedophilia; 
    6) abortion; 

    the agenda is being pushed around the world; 
    some countries have already legalized one or more of the agenda items; 
    the push is intensifying; targeting world leaders and people of influence; 
    obama, clinton and carter have fallen; the whole usa may fall soon; 
    noykapon has fallen; so do many ph politicians and academics; ph on the verge of falling; 

    everything will be redefined; 
    $sodomy becomes love; bestialisex is affection; 
    a junkie is chic; a prostitute is enterprising; 
    adopting the agenda is equated to progress, prosperity and advancement; 

    the idea is to make the world one big orgy; all people thinking, behaving and acting alike; 
    one world order; the reign of the great pervert; 
    there will be no more right nor wrong; there is only normal perversion; 

    time to choose which side you are on; fence-sitting not recommended. 

    No to perversion! 
    No to  rhbill.

    why should anyone be against it? It’s a private, personal decision that is nobody else’s business. It should not need legalising. Why should it be illegal? Only freaks and weirdoes oppose, interfere, want to control and delve into other people’s sex lives probably because they think of something salacious which turns them on……
