Sunday in Paris, France it’s estimated 60,000 to 150,000 people peacefully marched in support of marriage equality. They carried banners reading "A Gay Marriage Is Better Than A Sad One" or "Single, Free in Solidarity" & the words "equality" & "choice".
The march consisted of gay & lesbian couples, children & allies. They all showed their support for the Socialist government's plan to legalize same-gender marriage & adoptions in France. French President Francois Hollande said he would enact his "marriage for everyone" plan within a year of coming to power in May. The text will go to parliament next month. Of course France also has its homophobic religious leaders & politicians in rural areas dividing the country over whether gay couples should be "given" the same rights. You would think that France would already have marriage equality in place but it just shows how homophobes exist everywhere. Hopefully LGBT civil rights will come to France soon. In this country with our state-by-state outdated policy perhaps after marriage equality reaches the U.S. Supreme Court in the Spring a positive ruling will expedite LGBT equality in America. Just remember that slavery was also a state-by-state process. In this exclusive audio byte syndicated Afro-American religion columnist Reverend Irene Monroe addresses this concern:
