France to Remove "Mother" and "Father" from Official Documents

I'm trying to think of a clearer indicator of cultural demise but I just can't. Honestly,


The UK Telegraph
reports:
France is set to ban the words "mother" and "father" from all official documents under controversial plans to legalise gay marriage.

The move, which has outraged Catholics, means only the word "parents" would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.

The draft law states that "marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender".

It says all references to "mothers and fathers" in the civil code – which enshrines French law – will be swapped for simply "parents".

The law would also give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.

Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told France's Catholic newspaper La Croix: "Who is to say that a heterosexual couple will bring a child up better than a homosexual couple, that they will guarantee the best conditions for the child's development?"

"What is certain is that the interest of the child is a major preoccupation for the government."

The head of the French Catholic Church Cardinal Philippe Barbarin warned followers last week that gay marriage could lead to legalised incest and polygamy in society.

He told the Christian's RFC radio station: "Gay marriage would herald a complete breakdown in society.

"This could have innumerable consequences. Afterward they will want to create couples with three or four members. And after that, perhaps one day the taboo of incest will fall."

Leading French Catholics have also published a 'Prayer for France', which says: "Children should not be subjected to adults' desires and conflicts, so they can fully benefit from the love of their mother and father."

And Pope Benedict XVI invited 30 French bishops to Italy to urge them to fight against the new law.

He told them: "We have there a true challenge to take on.

"The family that is the foundation of social life is threatened in many places, following a concept of human nature that has proven defective
." What's good for children doesn't even enter into it? The fact that it takes a man and a woman to make a baby doesn't even enter into it. We want what we want when we want it, no matter the costs (to others.)

  1. >>>The law would also give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.<<<

    Even more scary than removing "mother" and "father" from the documents is performing a social experiment on a generation of children by handing them over to homosexual "couples".

  2. I wish I could say this offends me the most because of how it offends God's plan for man and women.
    I wish I could say it saddens me because there is such a loss to society when we fail to see the need for both a masculine and a feminine role in parenting - like when I see my boys in their baseball uniforms I think, "how CUTE!" and my husband thinks, "GET YOUR EYE ON THE BALL, MORON!"

    However, what really bothers me the most about attemtping to eliminate the distinctions between mothers and fathers is that Dad's role in bringing a baby into the world is "one enchanted evening" while Mom's is having her body taken over for nine months and then ripped in half for a few hours. And I want some props for that. French women are taking this away from me.

  3. Codifying and legalizing a vice, sodomy and lesbianism, is a fist raised against God, the Father, and our Blessed Virgin Mother. The title and office of FATHER and MOTHER cannot be bestowed by the government because the titles and office of FATHER and MOTHER are ordered by our Creator, the laws of nature and nature’s God. The title and office of FATHER and MOTHER are bestowed by God when two become one, and another human being comes into existence. When two become one, another sovereign person comes into existence. Government is constituted by a sovereign people. The sovereign person who comes into existence at conception constitutes government from the very first moment of his existence and therefore must have his vote on gay “limp wristed” adoption. Have the sovereign citizens of France voted and approved of being thrown into harm’s way and betrayed before God?
    The “limp wrist” will raise more “limp wrists”. Who will defend France, now that France has downgraded normal to abnormal? The royal heads of Europe were all hemophiliacs from intermarriage. The Blessed Virgin Mother is the only person the Muslims respect. The “limp wrists” are going to have to defend themselves. Hitler put the homosexuals to death. Aiding and abetting sodomy and lesbianism is an over-reaction to Hitler’s crimes against humanity.
    What would Lafayette say?

  4. Legally speaking it wasn't until the 1970s that French mothers were legally custodians of their children.

    So basically, modern France has acknowledged the existence of motherhood for less than 40 years. Way to go, guys.

    They've sure progressed far since the Middle Ages...when they were the first culture in history to recognize women as legal adults (12th century Frenchwomen could own property, practice trades, file lawsuits, and vote in any assembly where men could).
