Anti-gay marriage protestors in Paris use their children as human shields. Because you values.

Courtesy of AmericaBlog:

 Anti-gay “family values” protesters in Paris today got violent with the local police during a large anti-gay-marriage protest, and then used their nursery school age children as some kind of human shield to challenge the police. 

“On met les enfants devant! On met les enfants devant!” TRANSLATION: “Put the kids in front! Put the kids in front!” a father yells to other protesters, as he approaches the police line with his three year old child perilously perched on his shoulders in order to challenge the police who had just used tear gas and batons to push back the protesters who had just attacked them. 

America’s anti-gay religious right leaders, including National Organization for Marriage (NOM) head Brian Brown, have been supporting the French protests. No word yet on whether NOM will denounce its violent allies in Paris. 

Getting violent with the police? And using three year old children as some kind of human shield after there’s already been violence and tear gas (or pepper spray)? 


In my opinion it is child abuse to drag your children to a protest against love. But then to use them as human shields?

And they think that being raised by a same sex couple is bad for children. 


  1. Value the fetus... than you can use children as political pawns of armor, hmm how utterly confusing for that child that only knows how to love, for prejudice is taught, love is universal.

    This is just tiresome (and pathetic) coming from France, a country that has previously excelled in separating state from religion. Nobody loses when gays can marry, except perhaps beneficiaries to certain insurances. And, if this is the protesters' cause, it's just despicable.

      But the problem is they aren't focusing on that; for some reason they think their own freedom is at risk, at least in this country.

      This comment shows that:
      Gov. Palin isn't anti-gay. Her Chick-fil-A shirt is about freedom and she likes basketball. Now how simple was that... clearly too simple for the lamestream media.

      The same idea is repeated over and over, as if the gays want to take something (what I don't know- freedom? Really?) away from them. It is despicable, I agree.

    PORTMAN: Coming out

    ...The thought of telling people I was gay was pretty terrifying, but I was beginning to realize that coming out, however difficult it seemed, was a lot better than the alternative: staying in, all alone.

    I worried about how my friends back home would react when I told them I was gay. Would they stop hanging out with me? Would they tell me they were supportive, but then slowly distance themselves? And what about my friends at Yale, the “Gay Ivy”? Would they criticize me for not having come out earlier? Would they be able to understand my anxiety about all of this? I felt like I didn’t quite fit in with Yale or Cincinnati, or with gay or straight culture.

    In February of freshman year, I decided to write a letter to my parents. I’d tried to come out to them in person over winter break but hadn’t been able to. So I found a cubicle in Bass Library one day and went to work. Once I had something I was satisfied with, I overnighted it to my parents and awaited a response.

    They called as soon as they got the letter. They were surprised to learn I was gay, and full of questions, but absolutely rock-solid supportive. That was the beginning of the end of feeling ashamed about who I was.

    I still had a ways to go, though. By the end of freshman year, I’d only come out to my parents, my brother and sister, and two friends. One day that summer, my best friend from high school and I were hanging out.

    “There’s something I need to tell you,” I finally said. “I’m gay.” He paused for a second, looked down at the ground, looked back up, and said, “Me too.”

      If this wasn't such an obvious prep for a 2016 run for Portman, this would make me happy. However, I live in Ohio, and I don't trust him any more than I can throw him.

    The French in general will not appreciate that anyone tried to use his/her child as a shield against the police. It simply goes against the grain there.

    To be fair, it's a lone idiot and the other protesters do drag him back.

    Among the organizations calling for this protest were two masculinist associations, calling for the "rights of the fathers" - divorced fathers who have lost custody and visitation with their children, usually because of their bad or reckless behaviour, and who want all of it back, because "judges favour females in custody matters"...

    Seeing that there is no female around this pathetic excuse of a human being, I hope he's a divorced father and he loses custody and visitation with this child. This is appalling.

    And yeah, French police has done a tremendous work towards non-violence, and I'm proud of them having not hurt a single one of those morons trying to pick up a fight with their kids in their arms.

    Now that is a sin against humanity.

    I was the last to know. Also if you are from the time before the word "gay" came into fashion, what word would you use? "Homosexual" sounds just as bad as if you'd said "Anal Sex". The word still makes jaws drop and eyes bug with non English-speaking people. It would be so much easier to just say "I'm a 3".

    Exclusive: Congressional Ethics Probe Adds to Michele Bachmann’s Political Woes

    Eighteen months ago, the Minnesota House member was considered an unlikely but undeniable Republican rising star, winning the Iowa straw poll that unofficially begins the primary season. Today, she is embroiled in a litany of legal proceedings related to her rolling disaster of a presidential campaign—including a Office of Congressional Ethics investigation into campaign improprieties that has not previously been reported.

      Haha. Kent Sorenson is Michele Bachmann's Frank Bailey.

    Clearly a case of child endangerment.

    It's child abuse any way you look at it. Maybe "Father of the Year" could learn sane parenting lessons, preferably from a same sex household.


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
