The Economist reports that only a very tiny number of “gay” couples are likely to get ‘married’ in France (<5,000 per year) despite claims by jubilant advocates of “gay” ‘marriage’ that securing the “rights” to get ‘married’ will make a huge difference to their lives. The reality is that it is a highly unpopular institution among LGBTIAQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual/transgender, intersex, asexual, queer) communities, most of whom consider it largely irrelevant and meaningless. The estimated 1.4 million opponents of the bill to legalise same-sex ‘marriage’ who protested in Paris in March, are currently being urged to attend another march, on May 26th, to try to force the government to back down even though the law has passed. They know that advocating “marriage equality” and “gay” adoption, is primarily focused at “normalising” homosexual lifestyle with the result that children are discriminated against (children adopted by “gays” are denied the right to have both a father and a mother).
“IT WAS a moment of jubilation for some, consternation for others. After 136 hours of riotous parliamentary debate and months of demonstrations by opponents and advocates, French deputies voted on April 23rd to legalise gay marriage and adoption. The measure should be on the statute books by June, making France the 14th country to approve it. But the critics have not given up and are appealing to the Constitutional Council to reject the law……
“In reality, few people are likely to take advantage of the new law. In Spain, which legalised gay marriage in 2005, same-sex marriages represent only 2% of the total. Applied to France, this would suggest fewer than 5,000 gay marriages a year. Under French law, marriage confers firmer rights, particularly over inheritance, than the civil pacts that have long been open to same-sex partners. The irony is that, for heterosexual couples, such pacts are now nearly twice as popular as the increasingly unfashionable institution of marriage.”
