News story was on Yahoo! News for a few moments, before being scrubbed

www.bbc.co.uk...

"They are rallying against the law recently signed by President Francois Hollande, following heated debates.

Officials have warned that violent hardliners could infiltrate the rally, but it has so far been peaceful.

Fifty protesters were arrested on Saturday evening for blocking the capital's Champs-Elysees avenue.

France is now the ninth country in Europe, and 14th globally, to legalise gay marriage.

But French people have been bitterly divided over the issue. On Tuesday, a far-right historian shot himself dead in Notre Dame Cathedral, leaving messages in which he denounced gay marriage."

Nice to see people stand up for what’s right.
Good for them.
USA could take a lesson.
I just hope no one changes the name of French Fries again.

peace

Marriage isn't some kind of natural law, its a human construct. I mean can't people just be happy to be in love with each other , without the sanction of government and religion.

Most people I know who got married did it because it was what the girlfriend wanted. Her big day that she'd probably been planning since childhood. They cost a small fortune, which would be better invested in the off springs future.

Each to their own I guess.

French police says that 150,000 protesters are taking part in the march in central Paris, but the organisers say the number is closer to one million

I admire the French. They get off of their asses and do something about things.

Looking at how quickly gay marriage has been rushed through so many countries without any groundswell of support, democratic mandate or consultation, one has to wonder who is pulling the strings behind the scenes.

This isn't surprising. France has a large Roman Catholic population. Roman Catholics are known for their anti-gay (i.e., homophobic) stance. Their numbers are going down though - but they won't go out without a fight. It's their right to try, I suppose. But they are on the wrong side of history, so they will lose in the end.

I can only imagine it's a bunch of goofy Muslims and Christians trying to oppress others because of imaginary "sins".

Its 2013 no one cares about gay marriage but old people and religious nutcases kthxbye.

Just sad how people can go crazy over the most trivial things.
To the religious fanatics: There are two different forms of marriage, a church marriage and a civil marriage. Kinda weird that you never hear Christians complain about Buddhists getting married.

Gay people should protest that people who utilize the missionary position should not have marriage "rights".

To the majority of people, Christian or otherwise, homosexual sodomy has always been a detestable act, frequently punishable by death.

TPTB, i.e. the International Bankers, have plans regarding the world, and definite plans to overcome Christianity in the West. They appear to be succeeding. It does appear that only the second coming of Christ or a world-wide disater of biblical proportions will be able to foil their plans---that or, remotely perhaps, enough exposure to homosexual deviancy. Forcing the citizens to give their tacit approval/seal to something they detest is one of the worst of wrongs--but for some, it is "the right side of history."

Once again, we see that the French can be mighty temperamental!

I don't feel there would be as much outrage over "gay marriage", if heterosexual couples didn't feel that homosexual couples were trying to hijack the word "marriage". Hell, homosexuals are quite comfortable pushing the term "gay marriage" so, why not just issue "Gay Marriage Licenses"?

Note to "silo13":

I just hope no one changes the name of French Fries again.

That shouldn't be a worry! Home Fries are MUCH better than French Fries!

See ya,
Milt

Kudos to the French for sticking up for morale and values. Folks in the US detest homosexual marriage far more than everyone thinks but most people will not speak up for fear of losing a friend or being "PC" or hurting someone's feelings. Two thumbs up to France!!

Nonsense!

Homosexuals care A GREAT DEAL MORE about "gay marriage" than "old people and religious nutcases". I tend to fall into the "old people" category and, quite honestly, I don't give a damn either way. That's more of a battle for you young "whipper snappers"!

See ya,

The rapid scrubbing of this story by Yahoo! is an example of the controlled press of the US.
Will be interesting to see if papers, TV cover it at all.

Don't want to interfere with the "education" being provided by TPTB.

Gee whiz! That sounds like something a "fanatic" would say. Go figure...

I guess heterosexual sodomy is okay then?

I absolutely detest cigars. Cigars are nasty. I don't approve of them. I want cigars to be banned everywhere - even in people's homes. They offend me greatly. I don't want anyone to own them. Just knowing they exist bothers me greatly. Do I have the right to detest them? I think we agree that I do. Should they be banned everywhere just because of my personal views about them? You tell me.

This is the 3rd or 4th huge anti-LGBT rally recently, they aren't messing around. If you agree with it or not I'm sure many of these people feel its unfair that congress are the ones that decides whether it's legal or not.
