Funny, and here I thought it was the heteros who have already managed a "complete breakdown of society" through marriage. (What's the divorce rate again?) The gay couples I know are more conservative than the straights around here. Two of my gayest male friends just got married in Massachusetts after having been together for 30 years. But you know, the earth will burn for this.

I just do not see how that would work, and I am not a law talking person. well, mostly not.
Birth Certificates are very important, and I want to see bio parents names on those.
Otherwise- go away Rome- you are not the boss of US anymore

"Gay marriage would herald a complete breakdown in society," Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, the head of the French Catholic Church, told Christian's RFC radio last week.

No matter how many times I hear this, I still cannot wrap my head around the nature of this objection.

By what mechanic does legally marrying a small % minority suddenly cause society to fall? Does it cause bridges to fail or something?

Ah, Fox News, always avoids the suspense and gets to the point in the headline.
No mothers, no fathers, only chaos.

"This could have innumerable consequences. Afterward they will want to create couples with three or four members. And after that, perhaps one day the taboo of incest will fall," he said, according to the report.

He's not a very good priest if he's unaware of the turtle and horse marriages already planned.

Its the chaps, and the boas, mate. Pink feathers make concrete weaken.

"Afterward they will want to create couples with three or four members."

And four-sided triangles, no doubt.

Money can still be the most important thing to people who are gay, it's just more perplexing to us.

Its pretty simple. Its how organized religion works.Anything that doesn't involve praising their magic sky wizard 24/7 is evil and wrong.

If listening to Catholics worked, then we wouldn't have had those centuries of failure. So long as they sit in judgement and pretend to have answers without evidence, they will continue to be wrong on a regular basis.

Err, that didn't come out very clearly. I mean, they can still be paranoid about peasants raiding their bank accounts for mandatory tithes to the lucky duckies.

Under the proposed law, only the word "parents" would be used in marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples, a move that has sparked widespread outrage, The Telegraph reports.

An outrage to primitive, tiny-minded men..

I love that the knee-jerk reaction religious people have is that gay marriage is a gateway drug to all forms of depravity, completely ignoring the fact that most acts of depravity are done by heterosexuals.

Civil rights are bad, so vote Republican, right?

Watch closely, all you frog-hating Americans...

Notice that France has its measure of religious bigots too? See how they rightfully marginalize them and don't let them trample other people's civil rights? We could learn something from these wine-sipping surrender monkeys.

You're wasting your breath. "We don't want to be like France" is an automatic argument-winner in our enlightened land.

Yes, but they can't keep their Muslim population in ghettos forever, and once they get loose, let's just see how far this gay marriage crap flies with them.

The argument is basically that since the Roman Catholic Church is always right, society can only be right when it does what the RCC demands. If it doesn't it has, be definition, failed.

Not that this will make an iota of business. The Frogs have been separating church and state for two hundred years and they are very, very good at it.

Fark 'em. They might throw a riot or two and burn a few cars, but it won't change any policies.

Because this.

...until the Muslims outbreed the one-designer-baby-at-age-35 European mindset. Then they get a real seat at the policy making table.

The average birth rate among native Europeans is between 1.1 and 1.6 babies per couple. Meaning their population percentage will be shrinking.

/Of course, France will probably have gone through eight or nine more revolutions by then.
