The French Resistance

I don't recall seeing anything like this in this country, let alone my home state, where "President Francois Hollande's 'marriage for all' proposal" was already in practice a few weeks before I returned to her* — Protestors report 1 million in Paris march to defend marriage.

Funny, that in America, both right and left see France as the avante-garde of cultural Jacobinism and the latter at least sees their own countrymen as perpetually backward vis–à–vis their European superiors. Looks like we're far ahead of those neanderthal French. But seriously, maybe we can all learn from the French that the issue is not at all about hating gays:
    Numerous gay individuals took part in the event, with slogans including “We're more gay without marriage.” Attendees also included French gay city mayor, Jean Marc, who is outspokenly opposed to the legalization of same-sex marriage, as well as members from the organization HOMOVOX, which stands for “one voice for homosexuals.”
Not so strange bedfellows, really, if you think about it. But who wants to think about it, when you can feel about it?

*No, that is not why I moved home.
