1 Million people marched in France against same-sex marriage and now Christians have the same opportunity to claim that marriage should only be between and Man and a Woman.
A large rally has been arranged on Sunday 24th March in London at Trafalgar Square, by the French campaign group La Manif pour Tous who are heading up the demonstration.
This is open to anyone who wants to make a stand against this unpopular ungodly law. Many Denominations are gathering together to let it be known that the Government cannot with impunity subvert the sovereignty of our Queen, Elizabeth II, who during her coronation solemnly promised to defend the Christian faith and her ministers. Neither can it assume to declare moral and economic warfare, free of charge, on the productive part of society, families and children of Britain.
Canon Chris Sugden of Anglican Mainstream reminds us that “in January around a million people - including many thousands of students and young people - demonstrated on the streets of Paris against their government's proposals to redefine traditional marriage to include same sex couples. Hundreds of the demonstrators were UK-based French residents who boarded the Eurostar to Paris to join their compatriots.
What is less well known is that on the same day a further 600 French residents refrained from travelling to Paris but demonstrated instead outside the French Embassy in west London.
These UK-based French protesters are now organising another London demonstration, but this time in Trafalgar Square, London. As before, they are planning this to take place on the same day as the next Paris demonstration, Sunday 24th March, at which 2 million protesters are expected to march along the Champs-Elysees!
The UK-based protesters have invited other non-French UK residents to join them in Parliament Square, and to make this a joint protest against both the UK and the French governments' plans to redefine marriage.
For far too long Christians have been silent over major reforms and this is the time to make our stand. Just turn up. If you can, bring young children for a family-friendly outing and as a visible sign against the sterile adult-centred nature of same sex marriage.
2 - 5pm on Palm Sunday, 24th March, Trafalgar Square, London.
