What the BBC aren't telling you!

Just check this out!

Thousands of people rallied in Paris and across France on Saturday to protest a government bill that would extend marriage and adoption rights to same-sex couples. March organisers said marriage required "one dad and one mom for every child."

Opponents of a bill that would open up civil marriages and adoption to same-sex couples in France marched in the country’s main cities on Saturday to protest what they call a “major and dangerous upheaval”.
Protesters took to the streets of Rennes, Nantes, Dijon, Bordeaux, Lyon, Marseille and Toulouse to participate in the so-called “Demonstration for All” rally organized by conservative Catholic groups and which counted on the support of right-wing parties.

Their stated goal was to persuade French lawmakers to abandon plans to pass the new law called "Marriage and Adoption for All"which is being championed by France's ruling Socialist Party.
In Paris thousands of people gathered in the Denfert-Rochereau square, many brandishing signs that read “one mom and one dad for one child”. The crowds largely respected requests by organisers to wear blue, white and pink clothes and abstain from brandishing the names or colours of their own organizations or political parties.
Organisers said there was between 15,000 and 20,000 people at the protest in the French capital.

  1. But they were quick enough to report protests in Hungary over their new constitution which was, according to the BBC, “pushed through” the Hungarian Parliament. One of the objections of the protestors, the BBC informed us, was, surprise, surprise:
    “The inclusion of social issues - like the rights of the unborn child, marriage between a man and a woman, and the definition of life sentences - which critics argue should be left to ethical debates within society.”

    Somehow I don’t think that there will be any BBC reports that the French government, the UK Government and the Scottish Government have “pushed through” the redefinition of marriage if it happens.
