A ban on the usage of the words 'mother' and 'father' from all official documents is being planned by the French government under controversial plans to legalise gay marriage.

This means only the word 'parents' would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.

According to the Daily Mail, the draft law states that 'marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender'.

It further 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, the paper said.

Meanwhile, 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.

"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," the paper quoted him, as saying.

Leading French Catholics have also published a 'Prayer for France', which said 'children should not be subjected to adults' desires and conflicts, so they can fully benefit from the love of their mother and father.'
