Not favorable

In a recent interview with the conservative magazine Le Figaro, French president Sarkozy reaffirmed his conservative stances on a variety of social and economic issues. In contrast to his principal opponent in the upcoming presidential elections, socialist Fran├žois Hollande, Sarkozy told Le Figaro that he is “not favorable” to homosexual “marriage,” because it “opens the door to adoption.”

“In troubled times, when our society needs to keep its bearings, I don’t think that it is necessary to blur the image of this essential social institution that is marriage,” said Sarkozy.

Although Sarkozy said that he supports strengthening certain legal rights for gays and lesbians, including inheritance rights, he opposes the creation of “civil unions” because the would “tend to harm the institution of marriage. I know that there exists, in fact, particular situations with men and with women who assume their parental roles perfectly. But they do not lead me to think that it is necessary to inscribe in law a new definition of family,” he said.

Boohoo! Welcome to the Stone Age, France!
