Green Party politician warned on gay marriage

Paris Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin warned a Green Party politician on Wednesday that he risked punishment if he went ahead with plans to perform France's first gay marriage this weekend - a union that would not be recognized under France's current law.

.Noël Mamère, the politician, has said he intends to perform a marriage for two men Saturday in the southwestern town of Bègles, where he is mayor, despite pressure to abandon the plan. France's civil code "neither permits nor authorizes the marriage of two people of the same sex," Raffarin said.
