The End of France... will happen under Hollande...

Ah, the Hollande effect. In case you missed this, France will most likely see the passage of, not civil unions, but marriage. This means that the traditional definition of marriage will be irrevocably destroyed. Here is a snippet.

REUTERS - France’s new Socialist government is to legalise same-sex marriage next year, a junior minister said on Friday, reflecting a shift in public attitudes in the majority Catholic nation.
President Francois Hollande, who took office last month, had pledged to legalise gay marriage and adoption during his election campaign but had given no timeframe.
Since Hollande’s Socialists won an absolute majority in parliamentary elections two weeks ago, the conservative UMP party, which had opposed the measure under former president Nicolas Sarkozy, can do little to stop it.
"Within a year, people of the same sex will be able to marry and adopt children together," Dominique Bertinotti, junior minister for families, told the daily Le Parisien. "They will have the same rights and duties as any married couple."
A law granting full marriage status to gay couples would bring France, which currently provides only for same-sex civil unions, into line with fellow EU members Denmark, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, the Netherlands and Sweden.
It would also mark a profound change in French society, where more than two-thirds of people still describe themselves as Roman Catholic, according to a 2010 survey by pollster Ifop.

Hollande is being true to his socialist agenda which is strongly anti-religion, as all true socialists are. He is particularly keen to be the next great socialist tyrant of Europe. He is on his way. I believe he is a communist, not merely a socialist.

There is some objection, but I am afraid that it is a small minority.

"We are convinced that young people’s development requires the presence of a mother and a father," said Thierry Vidor, head of the Familles de France umbrella group, which represents some 70,000 families, and campaigns for traditional family rights.
"We will take action to try to show that this measure is ultimately dangerous for society."

A Gramsci win for France...

Presumably the complex relationship between Church and State is of no importance to you - far easier to run to apocalyptic fantasies of a Socialist/Communist tyranny. How exactly will Hollande impose himself as tyrant? Why not question why 'Catholic' France voted for Hollande and his party? Again, presumably too complicated. Far easier to cry 'Socialist', after all it works in 'debates' about American politics. You do believe Obama is a Socialist/Communist/Radical/Atheist/Muslim, don't you?

I, too, think he is a Communist, and very stupid.

Spirit of Vatican II,

We can have a discussion after you go to January on this blog and read all my posts on State and Church relations. I have quoted most if not all of the encyclicals in the past six months which deal with socialism and the Church and the State.

There are many links on the side here.

Because France is full of bad Catholics.

Again, presumably too complicated.

Not really!
