  1. So nice to see hatred of gays can bring Muslims and Christians together.

  2. After looking at all the videos, it appears that the anti-gay turnout is kind of paltry. None of the groups seem more than a few dozen at the most.

  3. When you chant “freedom” (liberté) to strip a group of people of the same rights you posses, something very wrong must be happening in your brain. I imagine Nazis making a fuss for the right to send Jews to a concentration camp. (Yes, the Goldwin law) .

  5. andy, it's something worth thinking about. Reactionaries will make their allies anywhere they can when it comes to hatred of LGBT people.

  6. Is it more or less expected? The French prime minister months ago said there was violent opposition when civil union was passed. It is just deja vu.

  8. The foreign press tried to make a big deal out of it. In reality, most French people are not worried. They have seen these kinds of things before that they are virtually numb. It will die down in a few days and life goes on as usual. After all, it has nothing to do most people except those who want to gay-marry.

  10. I don't believe in gay marriage, yet i don't detest gays. Marriage is beyond two consenting adults. Sibling relationships could be between two consenting adults, polygamy and polyandry could be between two consenting adults. Wake up people, moral decadence is on the high, what a shame.

  12. Get lost, troll!

  13. Family values? I just think that marriage
    equality somehow challenges their own
    fragile identity.

  14. @ david Ehrenstein, hate speech shows how unhealthy one's mind can be....YOUR mind.

  15. @Chika Raphael Christian
    Look in the mirror and read your last post to yourself.

    Then ask youself why you are so blinded by your own hatered toward Gays.

  16. Mr. 1luv, how does unbelief in gay marriage translate to hate? In an instance, how does unbelief in religion translate to hating christians, muslims,etc? Apparently you are morally obscene.
