Romney’s campaign slogan First, Not France was already a head-scratcher. What a tired out old lampoon. Even the Congressonal chow hall has taken to calling their greasy potato sticks French Fries again. But I suppose if he’s running against his own home state of MA, there is a certain consistency in his running against the country he spent 2 years evangelizing. Maybe he failed that mission miserably and is bitter? That fits his MA profile too. hmmm…
But what happens when Willard’s pet BOGEYMAN turns out to be better at barring gays from equal rights than Willard hisself? According to MA Family Institute (bastion of bashing, but informative emails!) France: High court rules in favor of traditional marriage
Last week, France’s highest court upheld the decision of a lower court and rejected the “marriage” of two homosexual men that had taken place in 2004. The court declared the marriage annulled, finding that “under French law, marriage is a union between a man and a woman.” Stephane Charpin and Bertrand Charpentier were “married” in a ceremony on June 5, 2004, in Begles, a town in the southwest Bordeaux region. The government immediately said the union was outside the law, and a series of court decisions upheld that government’s view. The latest court ruling explained that only a “new law by parliament” could change the situation. In other words, legislators, not judges, can change the definition of marriage.
And it was a court decision. Can’t bash France any more! Can’t cry ACTIVIST JUDGES any more! What is Weasely Willard to do?!! Any new slogan suggestions for our hollow hero?
