    Default France: Far right activist commits suicide

    France: Far right activist commits suicide in Notre Dame following legalisation of equal marriage

    by Joseph Patrick McCormick

    Dominique Venner committed suicide in front of the Notre Dame main altar


    Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris has been evacuated, after a former far-right activist committed suicide by shooting himself in the head, after writing a blog post slamming France’s recently passed equal marriage bill.

    Dominique Venner, a famous French historian, wrote the post on his blog on 21 May, before committing suicide today by shooting himself dead, in the mouth, in front of Notre Dame Cathedral’s main altar.

    In the blog post he spoke of respect for women and Islam, and said: “An infamous law, once passed, can always be repealed.”
    In previous posts, he also asked “Why [equal marriage is a] unique phenomenon in Europe?”, and noted a civil war, and its bloody and violent end, linking it to the protests over equal marriage.

    Following months of, sometimes violent, protests, and a substantial rise in homophobic attacks, on Friday French President Hollande signed the law, making France the fourteenth country in the world to allow equal marriage.

    Marriage equality opponents had hoped that challenging the bill before the Constitutional Council would scupper the bill after months of debate and protest.

    However, on Friday, the Council declared: “The law allowing same-sex marriage conforms with the constitution.”
    The first same-sex wedding is to take place in Montpellier, which is known as the “French San Francisco”, because of its large gay community, on 29 May.

    Watch Le Pen turn his funereal into a nationalist parade. Was this fellow religious? God ain't going to like that suicide in his church.

    Good for him. Now he won't be forced into the mandatory gay marriage program like everybody else.

    They should make his burial suit something rainbow colored. I'd bet he would have wanted it that way.

    I guess I am so naive, but why shouldn't gay people marry? I may be ignorant, but how on earth could this be damaging? I really, really don't get people who fight tooth and nails aginst it. I am areligious so I don't really buy the "it's against god's will"; is every nay sayer religious? And this chap blows his brains out because of it? Isn't suicide a sin or something? I am actually shaking my head in disbelief...

    Plenty of people oppose gay marriage and they are entitled to that opinion (which I disagree with) but killing yourself over it? He was obviously unhinged anyway.

    Note to all potential suicides: Please do it in private with minimum mess and no innocent bystanders. Kthksbi.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Hopefully his attempt to make himself into a martyr will fail miserably.
