France set to ban the words 'mother' and 'father' from official documents

This is a surprisingly progressive move for France. I guess I'm quite pleased, but I think they're doing it in the wrong order. It makes more sense to me for them to legalise gay marriage and then sort out the wording of their family law.

As a side note, part of the article reads as follows:
The head of the French Catholic Church Cardinal Philippe Barbarin warned followers last week that gay marriage could lead to legalised incest and polygamy in society. 
He told the Christian's RFC radio station: "Gay marriage would herald a complete breakdown in society. 
"This could have innumerable consequences. Afterward they will want to create couples with three or four members. And after that, perhaps one day the taboo of incest will fall."
Here's the thing though: that's not even the scariest bit. Have a read and see for yourself.
