French Parliament Legalizes Gay Marriage

France has become the latest country to legalize same-sex marriage, but its opponents are vowing to keep fighting.

The French parliament Tuesday gave final passage to a gay marriage bill, and President Francois Hollande has said he will sign it.

French Justice Minister Christiane Taibira said the bill does not take away anyone's rights, while granting them to others. She said the first gay weddings will be beautiful.

Opponents say they plan to file a legal challenge.

Street protests in Paris against the new law turned violent Tuesday night, with demonstrators throwing bottles, cans and metal bars at police who responded with tear gas.
