"We urge all French citizens to contact lawmakers to express their strong opposition to this policy. We also call on all citizens to conduct themselves honorably and peacefully. Even though the same-sex marriage policy being foisted on an unwilling public is profoundly unwise and anti-family, no citizen should ever express their disapproval through violent means. We condemn in the strongest possible terms violence by anyone on either side of this debate."
-- NOM president Brian Brown "condemning" the violence in France surrounding the country's decision to legalize same-sex marriage. The org - who supported and organized a lot of the opposition to the bill - waited until after it passed to condemn the horrific violence and riots they stirred up. There was no violence from supporters of marriage equality while riot police were needed several times to subdue opponents.
