200K March in Taiwan Against Gay Marriage; Opposed to Amend. to OK Same-Sex Marriage

A group promoting traditional marriage in Taiwan said that it marshaled some 200,000 people in front of Taiwan's presidential office on November 30 to protest a proposed amendment that would legalize same-sex "marriage" in the country, The New American website reports today (December 6, 2013).

The march -- organized in part by a group calling itself the Coalition for the Happiness of Our Next Generation -- brought together individuals, as well as parents and children, who carried signs bearing such messages as, "Defend Marriage," and "Oppose Amendment to Civil Code Article 972," the measure at the center of the debate.

"God created human beings as male and female," explained one woman who joined the protest.

She added, "Only the union of a man and a woman can create the next generation, and the ability to create offspring is an important function of a family."
