More christians heard from, throwing bottles and lying about their numbers--claiming over one million protesters while the official police reports estimate only 150,000. And as usual, out of touch with the mainstream--if Hollande made marriage equality a campaign pledge, then clearly the majority of French people must have voted in favor of it. But this relatively small crowd of religionists (and their fans) just refuse to accept that the 'earth revolves around the sun' since their holy book states the opposite.

Absurdly funny.

If they keep it up, then maybe people should protest that those protestors (mostly, so called religious people) should not have equal rights. After all, gays are real. Religion is superstition with no basis in reality.

I didn't get a chance to post it when I first saw it, but this morning I saw an article about this. The reporters were quoting and American couples who travel frequently to Paris.

Well actually they were quoting the wife, who happens to be a big Glenn Beck fan (guess they all fled to France?)

ANYWAY...

She was saying how nice it was seeing the "Pro Family" protest. Her exact words were, "it was so nice seeing so many people protesting FOR something instead of AGAINST something"?
