    Default Frenchman commits suicide in protest against gay marriage

    I knew there is strong opposition to gay marriage in France but this is taking the biscuit. Dominique Venner aged 78, dramatically shot himself in the head inside Notre Dame cathedral. Venner is a devout catholic and has connections to some far right groups in France. He is also a controversial historian and has made many media appearances. In his suicide note he stated his opposition to gay marriage and the rise of Islam in France. Will Venner now become a martyr for the extreme right?

    If he was a bit younger, he'd be in with a shot at the Darwin award.

    It's regrettable the clearly mentally unwell man didn't get help. On the plus side, if someone's going to get shot by a lunatic terrorist the Notre Dame, I'd rather it was the terrorist.

    To protest against the 'sin' of gay marriage, a man commits the (I assume worse) 'sin' of committing suicide by shooting himself in the head.

    Is that how it works?

    A tragedy and why imposing "gay marriage" without a direct mandate of the people is such a bad idea. I hope Mr.Cameron understands that.

    The gays will never get him now, that's for sure.

    Joking aside, he must have been seriously mentally ill.

    He obviously had mental issues. The less publicity the better, on all fronts.

    I'm against gay marriage but its very extreme to committ suicide to become a martyr against gay marriage.

    I also think suicide is selfish.
