Catholic Church's "Prayer for France" Angers French Gay Rights Activists

The Church restored a centuries-old tradition and articulated its opposition to France's proposed legalization of same-sex marriage


Gay rights groups in France have reacted angrily to the Catholic Church after it issued a call to prayer to protect the sacriment of marriage from same-sex couples.

The controversial "Prayer for France" has been sent out to churches across the country to be read out on August 15 to mark the feast of the Assumption.
