    French Parliament legalizes Gay Marriage

    Received from Reddit: http://www.france24.com/en/breaking/...s-gay-marriage

    The bill for gay marriage has been approved and adoption for same-sex couples is in its final vote on the Legislation.

    I apologize if a thread for this has already been made.

    Grats to them! I wasn't expecting the French to beat us to the punch, honestly.

    Breaking news alert, I believe. It's only been about 3 hours since the decision was made.

    It's also funny how this issue will not affect them, and in the end they are wasting their time and getting angry for nothing.

    That's not particularly surprising. Seems people outside of France were shocked by all the protests, but you have to remember that French people protest in the street for pretty much everything.

    Just a matter of time before all the first world nations have marriage equality. Will probably be quite some time before the rest of the world catches up, especially in countries that have strong religious ties that are anti-gay, such as some of the middle east countries, some of the truly catholic nations, etc.

    Glad to see that laws are being made to support equality and not being made to have a group of people force their beliefs on others. The US should take note.

    the top comment hits the nail on the head there :P
    So let me get this right: they're a anti-gay group composed entirely of men, that run around shirtless in a semi homoerotic fashion?

    That's freaking hilarious. I can imagine the planning meetings. "OK, so we're a group composed entirely of men, right? I have an idea! Let's put on brightly colored pants, remove our shirts, put on mardi gras masks, gag ourselves, and prance around holding hands! That'll show those gay bastards!"
    'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead
    Or a yawing hole in a battered head
