This gives me hope that the entire world isn't buying into the notion that our generation- a literal blip on the universal timeline- should feel they have the right or obligation to forge a dead end path for the human race

While I am opposed to gay marriage, I am puzzled by the French protest. This is the same country where it doesn't seem to matter whether one is married as a condition to living with someone, and when having a mistress is "normal." See the articles in the French media showing photos of the widow of Francois Mitterand and his mistress arm in arm at the funeral, and expressing approval.

@ bengel: Yes - because just as every American is exactly the same as every other American, every French individual is the exact same as every other French individual.

Stereotype much?

Would be great to witness similar demonstrations here.

@ worf: 1 - If you haven't seen the demonstrations here, it is because you have not been paying attention.

2 - If you want more demonstrations, perhaps you should organize one instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you.

I'm happy to see this! It's heartwarming. Thank you Parisians for standing up for stability in society instead of degradation.

So, the Right says we can now NOT hate France for not getting in line over our little "regime change" venture in Iraq? Bon!

"65-year-old"
"A 58-year-old"

That does sound like the demographic that opposes same sex marriage.

atl134--doesn't speak well for the younger demographic, does it. Things go in stages/steps. Look into history, and predict what another ten years will bring.

OK. How's this? In ten years, worf won't be explaining why he was wrong before, but he'll still be predicting the end of everything.

Mark B--wrong about what? History provides evidence of transforming lifestyles. I simply suggest doing some observing, research, and analytical thinking.
