    Read more: 'Vile law': French activist kills himself in Notre Dame Cathedral in gay marriage protest

    A far-right writer and activist killed himself in front of the altar of Paris's famed Notre Dame Cathedral on Tuesday in an apparent protest against gay marriage, after calling for "spectacular" action to protect France's identity.
    Dominique Venner, 78, a former right-wing activist known in France for his political essays, posted a note on his blog, attacking a law passed by the Socialist government last week allowing same-sex marriage and adoption, which he called "vile".

    Wow this guy shot himself in a protest against equality, good job moron!

    I wonder if this guy actually had something wrong with him which would be sad or if he is just that much of a bigoted cook which he wont be missed by me one bit and the world is a better place.

    Well that's drastic. Well no one can accuse him of lacking convictions. Although he did desecrate the house of God(?) in his macabre protest. Is that a sin worthy of hell?

    How sad, and stupid. Want to protest something? Make an argument and live out what you want to see happen. I view this similarly to people who die during a hunger strike, they are being stupid.

    I don't encourage suicide by giving anyone's suicidal 'reasons' any sort of positive merit unless it's under the guise of euthanasia and NOT political gain. . . it just encourages people to do that instead of actively addressing the problem more readily in ways that will actually CHANGE it.

    In essence: the guy took himself out of the picture supposedly because there was a problem that he couldn't face - and then expects other people to DO something to fix the supposed problem - that he decided he couldn't face.

    That's really the essence of true cowardice - hiding behind a fence while others do the dirty work for you.

    Just like I don't support assassination for political progress.

    I think that is just psychological disturbance and nothing else. Fortunately, he did not decide to kill other people so we shouldn't curse him too much.

    Dude couldn't let the American bigots have all the spotlight. Had to one-up them.

    Although standing up for one's religious convictions by committing a mortal sin seems to be a poorly considered plan. Poor guy probably had some underlying mental disorder, the poor guy.

    He didn't have the right to life anyway, being in a social medicine country. Now that he lost freedom of religion, apparently he saw no point in living any more.
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
