France historically has been the land of free love of amour which has no boundaries so it is rather surprising this land of love finally got around to supporting the right of all humans to love whomever they desire. The National Assembly voted 329to 229 to allow gay marriage despite street rallies against such action. Most polls indicate a majority of people support the concept of gay marriage but most oppose gay adoptions.
We tend to ignore the presence in most western nations of a significant group of people desiring to maintain what is, rather than adopt what is becoming accepted. After all, 30% of Americans believe God created the world about 12 years ago. We can expect those who oppose gay marriage will continue fighting and fighting until they die.
