Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Opponents of gay marriage in France, ask president Hollande for a national debate

2013-01-15

The massive outcome is a response to a bill that would change the definition of marriage. That bill will be discussed at the French National Assembly on January 29th.

Even though the biggest outcome was in Paris, other smaller protests  took place in other cities, including Rome. Marie Baret du Couderc helped organize the protest in the Eternal City, near the French embassy by Piazza Farnese.

Coordinator Protest in Rome

"Our French government, along with Justice Minister Mrs. Taubira, has proposed a bill that gives gay couples the right to marry and adopt children. It's a change in our civilization that we simply can not accept.”

Those who oppose the bill say the issue should first be debated publicly by its citizens. At this point, this has not happened. Opponents say president Francois Hollande's team, is dismissing a public debate all together.

"The first thing we've asked is that this bill be withdrawn. Then we must also point that there has not been a national debate.  Declaring a referendum would be perfect because then all the voices in our country could weigh in and not just a that of a small lobby group.”

So now those who oppose the bill, hope president Hollande's team will listen to their request. Especially since opponents argue that approving the bill would threaten the institution of marriage and of the family in Europe.
