(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #223 - Churches and gay marriage: Down with the moral (fr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 11 Jan 2013 09:59:05 +0200

Bill on gay marriage became "marriage for all", was adopted on 7 November in the Council of Ministers and took the road to the National Assembly. The Catholic Church, already on a war footing, was quick to respond. ---- Several months ago that fundamentalists of all stripes, headed by the sinister Barberin Archbishop or Bishop Andrà XXIII, mingle happily the political debate, and attempt to exert pressure on public opinion. These speeches are supported by right-wing associations, including the anti-abortion organization Alliance Vita, co-organizer of the event homophobic November 17, and Civitas, originally that of 18 November and various factions fascists.

Attack against fundamentalist

The Catholic Church, if it does not call for manifest, is lowered into the political arena with arguments similar to those fundamentalists: homosexual parenting would be a lie made to the child, which would lead to the destruction of the family . The kidnapping of the child is even more unbearable we know very well how to react to the defenders of the sacred family if tomorrow their children announce their homosexuality. In addition, the problem of filiation is to limit the issue of parenting that, nauseous, blood. No wonder the fundamentalists are widely reported speech by the Church. Where it should start worrying is when right-wing politicians and bourgeois elites patriarchal discourse include these traditionalists for electoral purposes.

A speech if marginal

The reasons given to justify the reactionary revolt are delusional. The prize goes to Serge Dassault, for whom homosexuality is the cause of the fall of ancient Greece. We are witnessing a resurgence of values ââthat queasy, such as "family" traditional jeopardized, it has seen demand Cope "States General of the family." The family is endangered by these "dirty fag-dyke," a speech that fits into the spiel about the loss of values ââwhich is the breeding ground of right. This discourse is more than one hundred thousand people marched through the streets of Paris on the weekend of 18 November ... So, a few more than usual turned the cap, marginal, it is the dissemination of ideas reactionary society in which worries us.

Right to equality

We do not defend the institution of marriage, an act of subjugation of women in a patriarchal system that places them successively into the hands of their father and then their husband while promoting domestic exploitation. Two people who love each other do not need the blessing of the state, nor that of any god to live their lives as they see fit. But to deny a right, it is refusing to recognize the legitimacy of a social group to exist and the right to equality. This exercise is legal and symbolic domination on the basis of a choice trial, marginalized, to stigmatize a population. The right to found a family depends on the marriage, as provided by the bill, is not satisfactory, but that this right is open to LGBT couples seems essential.

Our claim should be simple: because a family is a right, demand it for everyone, or for anyone. The family that I want, with who I want! One watchword: equal rights!
