More than 1,500 protesters have gathered in central Athens to oppose legislation that would legalize same-sex marriage in GreeceATHENS, Greece -- More than 1,500 protesters gathered in central Athens on Sunday to oppose legislation that would legalize same-sex marriage in Greece. Greece’s conservative government is sponsoring the bill but it will require votes from center and left opposition parties to be approved. Organizers of Sunday’s rally — religious groups — described the bill as a threat to the traditional family. Many same-sex couples in Greece seeking to start a family currently get married in countries where same-sex weddings are legal. If the bill is approved, Greece would become the first majority Orthodox country to legalize same-sex marriage.
