• Thousands Rally in Rome Against Gay Marriage and Gender Teachings in School

    As the controversial question of same-sex marriage rages on in America from the U.S. Court to the public square, the world is also wrapped up in its own debate over what marriage is and what marriage is not.

    More than a reported three hundred thousand people travelled from all over Italy, Europe, and beyond this past weekend to gather in protest against the Italian Senate’s proposed legalization calling for the legalization of civil unions and the teaching of “gender theories” courses in schools.

    The thousands of passionate protesters, caring signs that read “no to [non] gender,” gathered together in the historic San Giovanni Square in Rome Saturday.

    “In my children’s schools they are talking about families made up of two fathers or two mothers, without asking parents’ permission,” said 41-year old doctor Giuseppe Ripa Yahoo News reports.

    “It’s dangerous and wrong,” Ripa added.

    Back in America, the Supreme Court could rule any day now whether or not states can be allowed to legalize gay marriages and whether or not federal judges can legally overturn a state’s constitutional ballot initiative that outlaws same-sex marriage.

    In 2001, according to Gallup, 59% of Americans found same-sex marriage to be morally acceptable. That number has ticked up to 71% in May 2015.

    What’s most interesting about this story is how it has gone nearly unreported by an American media that is constantly preaching a message that boasts how much more progressive and enlightened Europeans are than Americans.

    I guess 300,000 Europeans protesting against same-sex marriage doesn’t fit the American media’s closed-minded little narrative.
