Argentine church-backed anti-gay marriage protest

[quote=France24]AFP - Tens of thousands of people have taken part in a church-sponsored, anti-gay marriage demonstration outside Congress in Buenos Aires, as senators prepared to vote on a bill already approved by the lower chamber.

“We want a daddy and a mommy,” “Say yes to the real family,” read some of the signs scattered among the protesters decrying what Roman Catholic church officials have branded “the devil’s project.”

Argentina, where 91 percent of the population says it is Catholic, could become the first Latin American country to pass a law legalizing marriage between same-sex couples if the Senate adopts the bill on Wednesday.
