    Default French parliament rejects gay marriage bill

    French parliament rejects gay marriage bill - Yahoo! News

    PARIS (AFP) France's lower house of parliament Tuesday rejected a bill that would have allowed gays to marry.
    The house, dominated by the ruling right-wing UMP party, voted by 293 votes to 222 to block the bill, with most left-wing lawmakers backing it and most of the right opposed.
    "We are against homophobia but we do not want to alter the image and function of marriage in the collective subconscious," said UMP lawmaker Michel Diefenbacher.
    Opposition Socialist party lawmaker Patrick Bloche had called the bill a measure to end a form of discrimination and "pass to a new stage in equality of rights."
    Several of France's fellow European Union member states, including Spain, Belgium and the Netherlands, have legalised homosexual marriage.

    This kind of decision making can only come from eating all that unpasteurized cheese.

    Not allowing gays to marry IS homophobia. I love the cognitive dissonance.

    "We're not anti gay, we just don't want gays to have equality."

    For fucks sake, if Spain can do it, any country can.

    Ahem, why is this not an EU issue? If the EU is wrangling with Turkey over torture and women's issues, why is it letting France get away with this bullshit?

    The UK hasn't legalized gay marriage either. We have civil partnerships though.

    Blatant homophobia. I swear, sometimes I feel like we are moving back into the dark ages.

    Well yeah, that's what I meant. Not the land mass. Or even the French.

    As can any American, Canadian or any other nationality who would rather see gays not receive the same rights as heteros.
