France’s Marriage Equality Law Ruled Constitutional

French-Marriage-Protest-Eiffel-TowerGo ahead with those plans to say “Je fais!”  France’s  top court has ruled opposition to the country’s recently passed gay marriage law by conservatives lawmakers as unconstitutional.

France became the 14th nation to legalize same-sex marriage in April and President Francois Hollande is expected to sign the bill into law on Saturday.  This means same-sex couples could be legally wed as early as the end of May.

    Heh, heh, heh… If French people wear Depends, the stores must be doing a sell out business today! Good going, French patriots! Progress is great, isn’t it?!?

    Excellent news, really stick it up the Vichy traitor right wing scum. Shame we didn’t gas them after the war.

    “I do” doesn’t translate to “je fais” but to “je le veux”. We don’t answer the big question the same way!

    I clicked on the hyperlink in the e-mail sent to me about this article which
    said “Viva France.” Ummm, does anyone at QUEERTY know a another language? If not, hire editors with language skills (which include English).

    While “viva” is a subjunctive verb form used in Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese (Long live! from the Latin, vivat), the interjection in French is “Vive la France!”

    @aoao646 Thank you for pointing out the other French error in this very brief article.

    L’Académie française is not happy.
