Last Sunday saw a massive demonstration in Paris when hundreds of thousands of French citizens marched in Paris, in bitterly cold temperatures, to oppose plans by Socialist President Francois Hollande to force a bill legalizing so-called same-sex marriage through the parliament by June of this year.
The demonstration, which was supported by the French Catholic hierarchy, was organized in defence of traditional marriage between a man and a woman, the natural family based on marriage and the adoption of children.
The sheer force of the turnout estimated by various sources as being between 800,000 and 1.3 million demonstrates that the push for so called ‘same-sex marriage’ is unacceptable to the wider population and likely to be rejected by the overwhelming majority of families in France if put to a vote.
You can watch the following video clip "La manif pour tous" which verifies the numbers present at the demonstration as seen from a vantage point on the Eiffel Tower.
The Parisian demonstration was also supported by many other similar demonstrations throughout the world as can be seen by this second video
