France is set to ban the words ’mother’ and ’father’ from all official documents under controversial plans to legalise gay marriage.

The move which has outraged Catholics means only the word ’parents’ would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.

The draft law states that ’marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender’.

And it says all references to ’mothers and fathers’ in the civil code - which enshrines French law - will be swapped for simply ’parents’.

The law would also give equal adoption rights to homosexual and heterosexual couples.

Justice Minister Christiane Taubira told France’s Catholic newspaper La Croix: ’Who is to say that a heterosexual couple will bring a child up better than a homosexual couple, that they will guarantee the best conditions for the child’s development?

’What is certain is that the interest of the child is a major preoccupation for the government.’

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 them: ’We have there a true challenge to take on.

’The family that is the foundation of social life is threatened in many places, following a concept of human nature that has proven defective.’

And leading French bishop Dominique Rey has called on the government to hold a referendum on gay marriage.

He said: ’A referendum must be held to allow a real debate and to make sure the government is not in the grip of the lobbies.

’A majority of the population agrees with the traditional view of marriage.’

President Francois Hollande pledged in his manifesto to legalise gay marriage.

The draft law will be presented to his cabinet for approval on October 31.
