France: Mayor May Go to Jail for Refusing to Conduct a Same Sex Wedding

Written by scott on June 11th, 2013

The mayor of the town of Arcangues, France, is refusing to marry a gay couple. Joe.My.God reports:

The mayor of the French town of Arcangues has become that nation’s first official threatened with a fine and prison time for refusing to conduct a same-sex marriage ceremony. “When people close the door at home, they do what they want,” Jean-Michel Colo told public service France Television. “For me, marriage is for a woman and man to have children. I am not discriminating as a same-sex couple is sterile. It’s a parody of equality, it’s a big lie,” he added.

Lovely words… as Joe says, you can bet this guy will get top billing in the next NOM mailer.
