Huge Anti Gay Marriage March in Paris

Tens of thousands of protesters marched through Paris on Sunday against France's recently passed same-sex marriage law.

Police put the number of protesters at 150,000 while organizers say 1 million people showed up. The march was generally peaceful, but about 100 far-right demonstrators who fought with riot police were arrested.

Sunday's march targeted President Francois Hollande and his Socialist government as much as gay marriage. One group of protesters hung a banner outside Socialist party headquarters demanding that Mr. Hollande resign.

France is a predominantly Catholic country but officially secular, and polls show most French support the right of same sex couples to marry.
