So much for "légalité, fraternité etc.." These patriotic slogans seem to mean very little everywhere.. it's rather "every man for himself"..

So of course the "catholic leaders," so opposed to marriage equality, will go on serving their blessed human blood and human flesh to their unquestioning flocks, as they have for millenia.

On any scale of morals, I would say that marriage equality ranks significantly higher than cannibalism. People who preach anti-gay hatred AND require cannibalism AND hide the rampant child abuse in their ranks are not in a position to lecture any other person on morality.

Glad to see that Marriage Equality has popular support. Hope the government will be able to do the right thing. Way to go France! If Maine, Washington and Maryland can do this so can you!

People often move from intolerance to tolerance but seldom do they regress from tolerance back to intolerance. So it's only a mater of time if it doesn't happen now it will eventually. Equality generally wins out.

Christian conservatives and Muslims who want to impose their ideology on the world are so similiar.

"100,000, Christians, Secular, and Muslims, Against Gay Marriage in France."
