Comments on: French Senate starts gay marriage debate amid loud protests http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2013/04/05/french-senate-starts-gay-marriage-debate-amid-loud-protests/ Religion, faith and ethics Sat, 23 Apr 2016 23:25:07 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: wild99g http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/2013/04/05/french-senate-starts-gay-marriage-debate-amid-loud-protests/comment-page-1/#comment-76697 Fri, 05 Apr 2013 18:07:13 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/faithworld/?p=28120#comment-76697 Your article incorrectly reports that “divided French society, pitting Catholics and conservatives against social reformers, left-wingers and gay people”

There are “gay people” (as you have labled them) who are opposed to “gay marriage,” as found in this article: http://www.ynaija.com/stop-trying-to-be- like-heterosexuals-read-from-gay-people- who-oppose-gay-marriages/

I’m sure there are “Catholics” and “conservatives” as well who are for “gay marriage.” This is part of the difficulty with lazy reporting is that it contributes to the division of our society and world “us vs. them” is becoming a prominent theme in how we view the world. I would hope that Reuters would work for true reporting fo the issues rather than being subject to the juvenille whims of our society that simply lables people for the ease of dismissing them. These are all people who are passionate about this issue, and its important that we see them all as people. Please work agains this trend in your reporting, if not for the purpose of helping our society, at least for accuracy in reporting.
