From the Article:

" ... Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told lawmakers that the first weddings could be as soon as June.

'We believe that the first weddings will be beautiful and that they'll bring a breeze of joy, and that those who are opposed to them today will surely be confounded when they are overcome with the happiness of the newlyweds and the families," she said'... "

I'm not surprised folks like Brian G and his friend Chance aren't on here? They usually post about the violence faced by anti-gays folks. Guess they approve when the violence is their own.
