French opponents of same-sex marriage continue fight despite law's implementation
June 10, 2013
The French president of the Federation of Catholic Family Associations in Europe is encouraging continued opposition to a new law allowing same-sex marriage, even after the law has gone into effect.
Antoine Renard insists that “the campaign isn’t over-- these laws rely on a big lie, and no lie can survive.
Since the new legislation went into effect on May 18, opponents have focused their efforts on local political campaigns, hoping to block further moves to re-define the family. A broadly based grassroots effort to oppose the redefinition of marriage has continued to gain public support and mount mass demonstrations.
