    Oh really...Tsk Tsk. Tell me did it hurt France's image when Socialist Hollande in May 2013 shoved through Same Sex Marriage and it caused such a riot in the streets of Paris, 400,000 strong. Did that hurt their global image and if so do you think the protesters cared?

When I see these bills fought over in the US it makes me sad because America is a great country but it seems to me that it is so polarised nowadays and that they are no longer a country the rest of us can aspire to.
    I do not even attempt to be seen as admirable to people from Europe. Your views are not those that I endorse, and not those that can lead to a free country. With that in mind, it is undoubtable my actions will disappoint you. That however, is not my concern, and if you were wise you would admire freedom, not these laws.

    A business that wishes to do other business with people who are considered minorities such as "blacks, latinos, asian, gay, bi sexual".

    yes it did but your comparing France to the USA, 100 years ago maybe France would of had that kind of impact globally but now they do not. The US is still the country I look at to set examples for us to follow, the US is the most powerful country worldwide and keeps the peace. I watch her movies, east some of her food, drink her drinks, anything the US does is scrutinized worldwide and we all take notice.
    ‘This is not peace, it is an armistice for 20 years.’ (Ferdinand Foch. After the Treaty of Versailles, 1919).

    If you believe in rights than you must believe in the right to discriminate. There is really no possible way you can not.


    I must believe in the right to discriminate???????? Are you serious?? Perhaps this land of freedom is not the right land for you....

    Ah..yes. Well then, yes, there is no difference between one group of people and another here.
