France to Eliminate Words "Mother", "Father" From Documents

Via Newsmax:

A proposal to legalize gay marriage in France would also abolish all references to “mothers” and “fathers” in official documents.

Under the draft bill, same-sex marriages would become legal, and gay couples would have the same rights to adopt children as heterosexual couples.

The bill would also do away with all references to “mothers and fathers” in the civil code and replace them with the gender-neutral term “parents”.

The draft law, which has outraged the Catholic Church, is expected to be presented to French President Francois Hollande on Oct. 31.

In an open letter titled “Prayer for France”, leading French Catholics opposed the bill, saying, “Children should not be subjected to adults’ desires and conflicts, so they can full benefit from the love of their mother and father”.
