Police tear-gas and beat peaceful marchers supporting traditional marriage

The much-prophesied time of the persecution of Christians is here.

As Americans await the Supreme Court’s decision on the constitutionality of the Defense of (Traditional) Marriage Act (DOMA) — and by implication, the constitutionality of same-sex marriage — it is sobering to know that 2½ months ago, 1.4 million Christians peacefully marched in support of traditional marriage in Paris and were met with tear gas and batons.

Angela Lu reports for WorldMag, March 26, 2013, that as the 1.4 million “Manif pour tous (March for all)” protesters approached the Champs-Elysees avenue and toward the presidential palace, in opposition to a draft bill legalizing same-sex marriage and gay adoption, French police tear gassed and beat the protesters with batons. The crowd included children, elderly people, and priests, many bused in from French provinces that continue to hold onto their Christian roots.

One LifeSiteNews correspondent, Jeanne Smits, who witnessed the protest said a 14-year-old boy needed respiratory assistance after the tear gas attack. The leader of the mainstream Christian Democratic Party also fell victim to the choking gas. Police allegedly threw a 17-year-old protestor down the stairs at the entrance of a subway station after gassing him.

While polls last August showed that same-sex marriage had two-thirds support among the French, the number is now down to a narrow majority. The opposition comes from the Catholic church in France, other religious leaders, including Jews and Muslims, and people in traditional small towns.

Meanwhile, in the United States, on March 26, 2013 (last Tuesday), more than 10,000 pro-marriage citizens from across the country and from every walk of life rallied and marched peacefully to the Supreme Court with two simple messages: “Respect Our Votes!” and “Kids Deserve a Mom and a Dad!”

But did you see or hear about this in the MSM?

ConservativeActionAlerts urges us to do the following:

1. BIGGEST NEED: Pray, pray, pray, for the Supreme Court, especially all 5 conservative Justices, to apply the existing law and uphold both the DOMA and Prop 8 bans.

2. Send an email to George Will (georgewill@washpost.com) saying “You are no longer conservative, but an enemy of Jesus Christ’s definition of marriage in Matthew 19:4-6.” This week George Will (who claims to speak for conservatives?) argued the Supreme Court should homose xualize marriage by striking down DOMA.

3. Sign our free petition to Congress here to defend traditional marriage as Jesus defined it, valid only between one man and one woman. Social share this petition on FB and Tw.

4. Call your two Senators at 202-225-3121 to say “oppose and filibuster S. 598″ the bill proposed by Diane Feinstein (D-CA) that would repeal DOMA.

  1. Thank you Dr. Eowyn for this incredible post. Indeed, the persecution of Christianity is at an all time high because we are dealing with “in your face” evil. We are dealing with the issue of homosexual marriages which is evil. We must never call evil, good, or good, evil!

    • Although it doesn’t say satire on the article’s page, if you go to his “about me” page, it says this writer for The New Yorker is a comedian who specializes in satire…. http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/bios/andy_borowitz/search?contributorName=Andy%20Borowitz

      The only problem is, I’m unsure how he can even get away with writing his supposed “satire” when it is patently apparent that what he actually writes crosses the line to libel…. Here is another one of his “pieces”… “As the Supreme Court prepared to hear two cases involving same-sex marriage this week, Justice Antonin Scalia said that he would not allow his votes to be influenced “in any way” by his lifelong fear of gays.
      “As Justices of the Supreme Court, we have a sacred duty to check our personal feelings at the door,” he told the Fox News Channel. “In my case, that means putting aside my longstanding and profound fear of homosexuals.”
      Justice Scalia added that he was committed “to safeguarding the rights of all Americans—even those I personally find terrifying.”
      “I take my role as an impartial arbiter very seriously,” he said. “So when I hear a case, I put all feelings of abhorrence, disgust, and revulsion completely out of my mind.”
      The Justice said that when it came to the issue of same-sex marriage he would rely on the Constitution, “which makes no mention of gays whatsoever.”
      “Remember, when the framers wrote the Constitution, there were no gays in America,” he said. “They didn’t come here until the nineteen-sixties.”
      All in all, he said, advocates of same-sex marriage should rest assured that he will listen to this week’s arguments with an open mind: “I’m going to apply the same robust sense of fairness that I’ve brought to cases involving blacks and women.”

  2. Eurosocialist police happily beating anyone whom the folk who control their job security and benefits want… what DHS would like to see here.

  3. It’s disheartening that policemen will attack their own brothers and sisters who are peacefully demonstrating against something they they feel is morally wring. When does it start here?

  4. USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans

    Is there a connection between beautiful New England and entire American cities turned into smoking rubble? There is.
    Take same-sex marriage. I would have guessed that a “sin” city (San Francisco? Las Vegas?) would have been the first to legalize it.
    Oddly it’s been the place where America started that’s wanted to be the first place to help bring about the end of America and its values! It’s been a Nor’easter of Perversion (helping to fulfill the end time “days of Lot” predicted in Luke 17) that began in (you guessed it) Boston in 2004.
    New England has gone from the Mayflower Compact to the Gay Power Impact, from Providence to decadence, from Bible thumpers to God dumpers, from university to diversity to perversity, and from the land of the Great Awakening to God’s Future Shakening that will make the Boston bombings look like Walden Pond ripples by comparison!
    The same Nor’easter has been spreading south and as far west as Washington State where, after swelling up with pride, Mt. Rainier may wish to celebrate shame-sex marriage by having a blast that Seaddlepated folks can share in lava-land!
    The same Luke 17 prediction is tied to the Book of Revelation which speaks of the cities that God will flatten because of same-sexism – including American cities – a scenario I’ll have to accept since I can’t create my own universe and decree rules for it.
    I’ve just been analyzing the world’s terminal “religion” that has its “god,” its accessories, its “rites,” and even a flag. It’s an obsession that the infected converts are willing to live for, fight for – and even die for!
    Want more facts? Google “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up” and “Government-Approved Illegals.”
