ROME (AFP) – Hundreds of thousands of Italians gathered in Rome Saturday to demonstrate against gay unions and the teaching of gender theories in schools, as Prime Minister Matteo Renzi tries to push a civil union bill through parliament.

Holding aloft banners reading “The family will save the world” and “Let’s defend our children”, a sea of people crammed into the San Giovanni square near the Italian capital’s historic centre to support family values.

The square, which can hold an estimated 300,000 people, was overflowing with the young, elderly and parents with toddlers, an AFP photographer said, with many more demonstrators spilling into nearby streets.

    So, if his t-shirt has a black man, black woman and black child with “this is a family”, where’s the one his (presumably wife) should be holding with a black man, white woman and and grey child with “this is not a family” with a red cross?

    Deut 7:3 “Furthermore, you shall not intermarry with them….”

    Rather hypocritical of them isn’t it?
