French Cartoons Against Gay Marriage

 

The French people love satire and these three cartoons are examples of artists satirizing the proposal for gay marriage in France:

"OK, I will accept that I have 2 Moms"
"But, then where is my Dad?"

Man on the left: “This child makes me feel hopeless”
Child: “Mommy?”
Man on the right: "Yes, she refuses to open to modernity”

“But actually…. I would have loved to have a Mom”
“You are selfish! You should be happy to know that you provided happiness to your two Dads!”

    They tried therapy dogs; now they want therapy children. Well whatever it takes to keep these people from killing themselves over the innate and immutable sense of guilt they carry for living self indulgent lives.

    Indentured infancy.

    Many children raised in the custody of same-sex guardians are asking these questions. And they're not too pleased that they've been lied to their entire lives.

    Children are not pets.

    Children are not accessories, like a Gucci Bag. Moreover, they can suffer sexual abuse, drug addiction, low IQ and dysfunctional lives by being exposed to this insanity (Regenerus).

    Here is a poignant testimony of a French man (Jean-Dominique Bunel) raised by two women with a homosexual problem:

    http://lestourtereaux.com/2013/01/10/inedit-et-tres-peu-mediatique-jai-ete-eleve-par-deux-femmes-temoigne-jean-dominique-bunel-qui-est-contre-le-mariage-pour-tous/

    He was asked how he suffered by having two women with a homosexual problem as "parents."

    Jean-Dominique: "It was the indifference of adults in regard to the intimate sufferings of children, starting with mine. In a world where their rights are discussed every day, in fact, it is always those adults who prevail. I also suffered from the lack of a father, and having his daily presence, a proper masculine character and behavior, an alterity in relation to my mother and her partner. I became aware of all of this very early in life. I experienced this absence of a father as an amputation. " To which he adds, " I offer you a testimony, this has no value as a political poll "

    And, lastly, he declares, "If the two women who raised me had legally married after the adoption of such a bill (homosexual marriage), I would have launched myself in this fight and I would have filed a complaint against the French government in the the European Court of Human Rights for violation of my right to have a father and a mother. "

    Well said, Jean-Dominique. And well done for breaking your silence.

    Yes, it would appear that these gay couples are using children as show-pieces in an attempt to prove how "normal" gay marriage is. Shameful, really. But what of straight couples who wait too long to marry , because they are pursuing careers and the glitzy life-style, and then use donor eggs or sperm donors or surrogates to also have "show-piece" children? Not to mention the disgraceful straight couples over 50 who suddenly decide they must have children as signals of the luxury life and of re-sought youth: Giving their 10 year old child the gift of a 60 year old mother and a 70 year old father (New York Magazine ran a whole section on these wealthy idiots).

    It would seem abundantly clear that same sex marriage is a by-product of all of this self-indulgence with children as something to be show cased and tossed off on Nannies. All these trends should be reversed: I do not think we will be rid of same sex marriage without getting rid of the rest of it. Not here, or in France, nor anywhere else.

    Comparing the extreme exception to the rule that is surrogacy between natural parings with the absolute unavoidable truth that is opposite gender pairings is a bit of a reach; don't you think?

    I mean one in a thousand is no where near the one-hundred-percent that same gender pairings produce..

    It looks as though your Mr. Brown has run away to France as an intervenor against the French Government, just at the time when he might deploy his time to greater impact in Illinois. And don't his 8 children deserve to see him in his own home?

    People who post here hardly count in terms of the NOM budget, which comes from the Vatican, the Mormons and a very few elite wealthy. Yet what a waste of money and effort! If you are all concerned about your marriages, perhaps NOM should be focussed on improving the quality of heterosexual marriage so as to lower the divorce rate of 50% which is the number one thing that is devastating for children, not whether they have one dad and one mom. The important thing is love, commitment and nurturing and many LGBT couples provide that. Their relationships in no way threaten your own. NOM and its doomed Crusade are all about Catholic dogma and hierarchical supremacy which citiizens have been increasingly rejecting for a long time now. To be good Christians you need to feed the poor, heal the sick shelter the homeless comfort the dispirited and one does not need an archbishop, cardinal or pope to do that. People who marginalise the LGBT, who are no threat whatsoever to your own marriages, have just lost sight of what being Christian is all about. You need to re-focus if this is the issue that defines you, because it defines you in an awfully poor light.

    Your 50% lie has already been thoroughly refuted here Bruce.

    Your fellow LGBT Church members are demanding everybody else change to accommodate their decadent behavior. If you truly believed your sin were acceptable you would not be here demanding it be declared to be that which it was incapable of ever becoming.

    Bruce, every child deserves to have their own mother and father. Why do want to selfishly deny a chid this right, because of adult sexual desires. As a responsible parent the needs of the child always comes first. Unit you understand this, keep your paws off other peoples children.

    These problems ('who IS my dad, my biological father?' (mommy, biological mother), 'why does he (she) not matter?', using a child as a life style choice, using a child as a source of adult fulfillment, guilting children (or adult "children") to be grateful (disenfranchised grief)) when they express a natural feeling of loss and injustice, are NOT discriminating issues in relation to procreation and responsibility (formally known as "marriage"). These issues apply to heterosexuals as well as homosexuals.

    "What IS marriage?" is what this is all about.

    Keep living in that world where nothing ever happens to the married couple with children. No parent ever dies, no parents divorce and rarely see their children for whatever reason, no single moms exist because they're all happily married and every single child is being raised by moms and dads that love each other and love being kept together for the sake of the children. That world doesn't exist and never did exist. But you keep that picture in your head and blame gays and lesbians for providing homes for children who have none. Keep that picture in your head and blame the non-existence of it on gays and lesbians, and not on heterosexuals who get pregnant and don't want to get married or men who have 15 kids by 10 women and see each child for maybe 2 hours a month because he's racing to prove his masculinity. Keep that picture in your head when you read about another abused child dying and the parents getting short time in prison. SO many things to really blame on yourselves and you keep wanting to blame gays and lesbians and stop them from marriage.

    So because there are cracks in the dam, Teri, the answer is to add more cracks, thus contributing to its complete destruction? No. The answer is to patch up whatever cracks there are, not make the current situation worse.

    @ Randy: I was not thinking in terms of numbers nor statistics: I was speaking of a transformed context regarding marriage itself. The discourse and ideation has shifted first in the heterosexual world. Same sex marriage rode in on this wave, and will ride out on it.

    Teri, you are certainly correct that children are harmed by both injustices and the unexpected tragedies of life. But to issue that judgment is in fact to offer a brief against gay adoption. If it is tragedy that a girl lose her father--by divorce, death, or desertion--it is clearly wrong that she lose her father on purpose, by design.

    It would be like saying that because people have learned to live with one leg, therefore, it is permissible to say that amputating a healthy leg is good.

    My son was adopted. His birth parents (Mom and Dad) were abusive. He was failing in school, diagnosed with RAD (reactive attachment disorder) and would cry in the fetal position for hours. His behavior as documented by the school we enrolled him in was rocky from the first day. (This is not my story but his, so the rocky details will not be given). Fast forward to the present; my son is an A student. He is happy, motivated and attends a public school where his teachers remark on his great manners, happy personality and wonderful ethics. I am his forever "gay" mother and the day he was born from my heart; was the happiest moment of my life. I have kept the contact information to his birth family; as well as ensuring I am always positive about them in his presence. My opinion regarding their parenting skills are not what he needs to make his own mind up. This August he turned 16 and I told him about the information. His reply, "I have the best parent in the world right here Mom. They gave me life, but you have given me a life, a good one, and that is all I need."

    Sometimes we are so busy judging others, that we forget the most important part of the equation, the child.

    The cartoons depict the pro-SSM atitude. SSM commenter have reinforced that here.
