100,000+protest against same-sex marriage and adoption in France today, according to police figures. A couple counter-protests were stymied by police, with 200 detained in Lyon, and teargas being deployed in Toulouse. Further protests in Paris tomorrow are anticipated; Pope Benedict XVI today called for a more vocal Catholic presence on French social issues. source
Honestly disappointing, but at least opposition appears to be dying out. It’s only the last few remaining that will become particularly vocal before they’re completely snuffed out.
