France Eliminating Words “Mother” and “Father” From Legal Documents


The move, which has outraged Catholics, means only the word “parents” would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.

The draft law states that “marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender.”

It says all references to “mothers and fathers” in the civil code – which enshrines French law – will be swapped for simply “parents.”  Telegraph

Thank you, France. Thank you. Every single time I think we have hit rock bottom, I just look over at France and I suddenly feel better about things.

From now on, whenever I read some story about a football coach getting fired for making his players run, or whenever I can’t find a 24oz soda on the island of Manhattan, or any time Barack Obama starts talking, I will just go to Google and check up on the latest news from France. It’s an instant pick-me-up.
