    UMP is an homophobic party in France . This party was against a gay partenership ( called PACS ) and they organized a protest where some people said “gay people should be burning” .
    Sarkozy the chief party accept that one of his deputy called “Vanneste” say : gays people are dangerous for humanity . Now he refused same sex marriage . He is devoted to the homophobic lobby .
    French will try to stop him and hope he ‘ll not be our president . We refuse SARKOZY .
