Marriage Votes Globally This Week Could Begin Family Restoration

While New York legislators consider the implications of marriage definition alteration, in Paris, France yesterday marriage was supported by a solid majority vote.

LifeSiteNews.com - French legislators rejected a bill to legalize "homosexual marriage" today in a decisive vote by the National Assembly, the nation's lower legislative house. Assembly representatives voted against the bill, proposed by socialists, by a majority of 293 to 222. The vote follows a ruling in January by the nation's highest court, the Constitutional Council, stating that homosexual "marriage" is not a constitutional right.

Although a recent and much-cited poll found that a majority of French voters, 58 percent, favor the creation of homosexual "marriage," Michel Difenbacher of the majority Union for a Popular Movement (UMP) party said he thought it not necessary "to go with the wind nor to cede to fashion" with regard to the issue. "We are against homophobia but we do not want to alter the image and function of marriage" within society, Difenbacher said.  Christian Vanneste and Brigette Bareges, also of the UMP, were more blunt in their negative assessment of the proposed measure.  Vanneste called such unions an "anthropological aberration," while Bareges asked: "why not marriage with animals, or polygamy?"  Read the entire article at Google News at: PARIS, June 14, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - French legislators rejected a bill to legalize, or at http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/french-national-assembly-rejects-homosexual-marriage-in-historic-vote?utm_source=LifeSiteNews.com+Daily+Newsletter&utm_campaign=420d17c5c2-LifeSiteNews_com_Intl_Full_Text_06_14_2011&utm_medium=email.

France is the human rights center of Europe, and apparently understands the implications of altering or expanding marriage, and its foundation for strong families and their restoration.

In New York, amidst the Rep. Anthony Weiner sexual scandal and religious concerns that people of faith will be coerced into supporting same sex unions, a marriage vote has been pending for almost a week. New Yorkers who understand marriage may wish to contact their Senator to express their opinions on such a vote.

Stephen Saland(518) 455-2411
Andrew Lanza(518) 455-3215
Mark Grisanti(518) 455-3240
Greg Ball(518) 455-3111
John Flanagan(518) 455-2071
Joseph Addabbo(518) 455-2322
Shirley Huntley(518) 455-3531

The outcome in the New York Senate will have ramifications all across the nation.  New Yorkers may wish to vote on the matter themselves, like 38 states have already done, rather than leave it to 62 senators to define marriage for them.  The National Organization for Marriage (http://www.nom.org/) has set up email access as well—and you may click here to send your message by email!

Marriage is the global foundation for families, and their restoration depends on it.  This week 62 senators under intense pressure from donors, activists and lobbyists, are determining marriage, rather than support a referendum that would give the people of New York the right to vote on marriage.

Last week David Tyree of the 2009 New York Giants (who made history with his near miraculous catch with a minute to go in Super Bowl XLII that set up the NY Giant's victory against the undefeated New England Patriots) took a courageous stand for marriage, standing with pastors from across the state on the steps of the Capitol in Albany and declaring: "I believe in marriage as God originally intended, between one man and one woman."

Marriage votes could begin family restoration, or move a society closer to the deconstruction of families.
