FRANCE, October 23, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The first nationwide public demonstration against the French socialist government’s plan to legalize homosexual “marriage” took place today simultaneously in 75 French towns.
The events were organized by “Alliance Vita” and took the form of colorful flash mobs in well-frequented locations, attracting widespread public attention and media coverage.
In every case groups of men dressed in black and women in white separated into two groups symbolizing the fact that every child needs a mother and a father. Holding up bright pink signs saying : “Daddy, Mommy, you shouldn’t tell lies to children”, the “daddies” and “mommies” alternately helped a blundering bird – symbolizing a new-born child – to leave its nest without falling.
Meanwhile Joe Dassin’s sixties hit, “Tout bébé a besoin d’une maman” (“Every baby needs a Mommie to be loved”), and Abba’s Mamma mia were played over loudspeakers.
On the busy main square of Paris business and shopping center “La Défense,” where this author witnessed the event, most of the lookers-on seemed interested and even sympathetic to the message. Young people handing out leaflets in favor of natural marriage said at least 80% of people they spoke with reacted positively.
In many towns hundreds of “daddies and mommies” gathered to spread the message: 600 in Lyons, 400 in Rennes, as many in Bordeaux, 200 in Toulouse.
At least 1,500 joined the event in Paris, where “Alliance Vita’s” leaders addressed the crowd.
“To tell a child it has two daddies or two mommies is telling a lie. You should never lie to a child,” said Tugdual Derville, the movement’s general delegate.
“Children have a right to know their origins, they have a right to a daddy and a mommy and not respecting that when they are already hurt through being orphans is just adding further mistreatment,” he said.
Meanwhile, here in New Zealand, today is the final day for written submissions to Parliament over the proposed redefinition of marriage to allow two of the same sex to be allowed to be "married". Submit an online submission here: Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill
In Britain, a woman has tried unsuccessfully to prevent her children from being adopted by two men after they were taken away from her last year because of her alcoholism. The fear was that if she succeeded in preventing the adoption, then her case might undermine the whole principle of allowing same-sex couples to adopt.
... if the court found in favor of the mother, the ruling could have wide-ranging legal ramifications affecting the authority of local councils to place children with homosexual and lesbian couples.
Yes, can't have that, they have to pretend they are the same as having a mummie and a daddy looking after them.
