Breaking: France Votes 179-157 To Approve Article 1 of Gay Marriage Bill: Article One Legalizes Same-sex Marriage

Translated from French:

The Senate has approved Tuesday by 179 votes against 157 the first article of the bill on gay marriage, the most important, who opens the marriage to persons of the same-sex. This article was adopted “in conformity”, that is to say, without modification from the first reading vote in the National Assembly . This vote becomes final unless the entire bill was rejected after consideration by the Senate. It will not be subjected to a second reading in the National Assembly or the CMP (Mixed Commission). 10:00 Discussion

The vote came after more than 10 hours of discussion on this article in which the right against the bill scrapped by multiplying the catch words in an electric atmosphere. “Despite attempts to obstruct the right, the Senate just adopt Article 1 which allows same-sex couples to marry, “said the group’s president PS François Rebsamen , in a statement after the vote.

“The adoption of this article by a vote of the entire Senate majority, puts an end to the discrimination that resulted from sexual choices of citizens,” he added. “Given the abuses that took place either by manifestations of violence in the street, either by verbal excesses in the chamber, the vote on this article marks a victory for the fight against homophobia, tolerance and the of democracy, “he concluded.

There are still hundreds of provisions left to be voted on, but this was the first huge hurdle and the most important part of the bill

So what's next?

That's great, but man that's fucking close. France is not much better than the US. The country has always touted itself as being better than America. They've got the same bunch of loons the US does. Anyway, I'm ecstatic for French gays and lesbians.
