Le Pen, who is currently leading the polls for the spring elections, said the reversal of the same-sex marriage law would not be retroactive.The candidate explained that gay couples would be able to enter into civil partnerships (PACS).
An interesting piece of information reported is that despite the pledge to abolish the same-sex marriage law Le Pen has gained the support of LGBT voters in France. According to the Guardian her support from gay married couples rose from from 19 percent in 2012 to 32 percent in 2015.

Jesus Watches You says
Gay Marriage is WRONG! Gay people, please turn away from perversion. Do not let the whims of your body control you. Stop justifying your flirting and promiscuous behavior based on lust and sin. Find purity, find God, find Freedom! Homosexuality is NOT okay because YOU WERE NOT BORN LIKE THAT. God made you and loves you. You can be set free from shame and embarrassment of your perversions. Believe that you can be set free and become PURE. Resist Satan and all of his empty promises. Being Gay is NOT OKAY. Find Jesus, yes he CAN SAVE YOUR SOUL from burning in hell. You have a chance to make it to heaven, still. Go to church and find him. REPENT! I am begging you!
