As Catholic Church Crusades Against Gay Marriage In France, ACT UP Fires Back

The gargoyles on Notre Dame have apparently come to life: Catholic leadership in France took today’s Assumption holiday to issue an attack on marriage equality and same-sex adoption.

President Francois Hollande has endorsed legislation to legalize marriage equality and gay adoption, a change polls say most French people support.

But French bishops at a conference asked priests to lead their congregation in prayers underscoring ‘‘the love of a father and a mother” and urging Gallic politicians to resist pleas by gay-rights group.

Below, ACT UP France issued a parody video attacking the Church’s “call to prayer.” We don’t know what he’s saying but perhaps a Queerty reader who parlezes Français can translate?
