The French are all for sex and all for family — so long as you're having sex to create one. Anything dealing with assisted reproduction makes a sizable portion of them uncomfortable, as the president's plans to legalize gay marriage have unexpectedly exposed.

Last Election Day more than $30 million dollars was spent by the combined pro and anti-gay marriage coalitions. I witnessed first-hand the amount of money they were trying to raise, simply to keep up with anti-gay organizations "protecting marriage" for the 50 percent of heterosexual ones that don't end in divorce. I wondered why we had to waste so much money on issues like this when there are 17 million children in the United States who don't have access to sufficient food.
