Jewish and protestant representatives were allowed to speak, as was a member of the Muslim brotherhood. No Catholic bishop was invited to speak even though the vast majority of participants identify with Catholicism, sociologically at least, and it is an open secret that Sunday’s turnout was largely due to the Catholic hierarchy’s support.

Catholic ping!

Show of force, Muzz Brotherhood aside. See, rats. Even the French don’t want to recognize turd-poker marriage.

France loves gays and muzzies. Thus, they approve of gay muzzies marrying each other.

Why are the world powers pushing queer marriage? Population control. Agenda 21 needs to push everyone into urban centers, but everyone won’t fit, so Soros and friends need to kill off as many future people as they can via queer diseases and queer sex dead-endism.

At least the children get to see the government’s true colors. More efficient dictatorships kill them to the last child...but the current leadership doesn’t know what they are doing.

These cops made the mistake of encouraging these protestors to be even more passionate. That 14 year old will never forget the day he was gassed by a dystopian government.

funny how that works ;P

When is this nightmare going to end? We’ve been in free fall for five years, and we still can’t see the bottom.

Personally, I think we have progressed beyond that point. What once were local issues, are now global. Consider one of the visions of St. Faustina.

"...I saw two roads. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great that it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings" (Diary 153).

Consider that our Lord our Lord chose St. Faustina as His secretary for the Divine Mercy. In one of several pronouncements, he said: "Speak to the world about My mercy ... It is a sign for the end times. After it will come the Day of Justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fountain of My mercy. (Diary 848)"

Time has accelerated in our world. We need to heed those words.

Yeah, because it is people in the US that are allowing the government to force gay marriage upon us with very little resistance.

So, who is waving the white flag of retreat now?

Meanwhile, no one’s covering the non-story about how Muzzies have been burning cars and other private property belonging to other people, continually, for years on end, and the wild guess here is, they’ve never been hit with tear gas.

Well, I do agree, but you must add the most ardent gay rights pushers, the democrats.

You must also add in the American citizens unwilling to march in the streets against gay marriage.

Glad I’m not alone. 10, 20 years ago, we battled these issues on a local level. Today, it’s as if the gates of hell had sprung open and now we are confronting the same issues worldwide. Were one to flee, where would you go? It’s everywhere.

That's the scary part.

Suppose you made a "futuristic" sci-fi movie 15 years ago, set in 2013, about hundreds of thousands of French citizens turning out in droves to protest militant efforts legalize gay marriage, being teargassed by SWAT teams -- while Americans sat by ideally and polls showed "58%" of Americans actually SUPPORTED gay marriage (and various "conservative" GOP leaders actually DEMANDED "marriage equality" for gays!)

The premise of the movie would have been laughed off as the most unrealistic storyline ever conceived. "Yeah, like THAT will EVER happen!" Alf would be considered more plausible.

I am wary of clichés but our entertainment culture with help of our professional commentators (and public schools) have successfully shaped young peoples thoughts with help from their failing families.

How the hell did 2% take over 65% and 85% of those under 40?

I’ve recently read an old sci-fi story that appeared in an early issue of “Playboy” about a future where heterosexuality was outlawed. “The Crooked Man”. I doubt many people read it on their way to the centerfold.

It was meant to be a pro gay parable of course but it didn’t come off that way to me.

Hey make a movie about an obscure state Senator with a weird name who gets his butt kicked in a US House primary and then is somehow elected President 8 short years later due to becoming the political equivalent of an American idol winner. Truth is stranger than fiction. Zero people on the planet could have told you in 2001 that Bush’s successor would be Barack Obama. Even he, a man who had fantasied of being President since childhood, couldn’t have told you that.

I remember an episode of “House” circa 2005 about a Black US Senator POTUS candidate (mistakenly) thought to have AIDS. He steadfastly denies he’s gay. House said “Some day there will be a black president. Some day there will be a gay president. Maybe there will even be a gay, black president.”

Little did I know it was prophecy.

There's an early 1970s movie called "The Man", starring James Earl Jones as the first black President. Since it was considered nearly impossible a black guy would be elected President outright, the premise is he's Senate Pro Temp and suddenly becomes President due to a freak accident where the President, veep, and Speaker are all killed at once. The movie was written by Rod Serling of The Twilight Zone fame. I've never seen it.

Speaking of Rod Serling, what's going on now with gay marriage is at least a perfect fit for one of those "terrifying" 50s Twilight Zone episodes where people wake up one day and find society completely switched around. You can practically picture Serling stepping in from behind the curtain and go "Imagine a world where two men of the same gender getting married is normal, and you are abnormal for opposing it. Impossible? Perhaps in our world it is. But not here, in The Twilight Zone" And you know what? It would be a perfect Twilight Zone episode except the 50s era censors probably wouldn't allow such a storyline and reject it for being too gross and shocking.

>> Little did I know it was prophecy. <<

Two films that nailed future political reality were "First Monday in October", about a Sandra Day O'Connor type judge who is nominated by a conservative Republican president and becomes the first female justice ever on the U.S. Supreme Court (which was filmed about a year before Reagan nominated her!) and 1968's "Shoes of the Fisherman", which is set in the 1980s and about a slavic Cardinal from eastern Europe (who was a political prisoner under Soviet occupation). During the papal conclave, there is a deadlock between liberal and conservative Italian candidates, and he is a dark horse elected as a compromise candidate, becoming the first non-Italian Pope is over 450 years. The new Pope refuses to wear the papal tiara so he can make the papacy more accessible to the people. A decade later, John Paul II's election fit the story to the tee, except he was Polish instead of Ukrainian and took the name JPII instead of "Pope Kiril"
