A story is breaking from Paris, where a 78 year-old right wing ideologue has shot himself in the head at the altar inside Notre Dame Cathedral, apparently in protest of that nation's legalization of gay marriage.
Dominique Venner, who was a former member of the domestic terrorist organization OAS in France (a group that tried several times to assassination President Charles de Gaulle), had railed about the loss of traditional values, the coming Islamist takeover of France, and his fear that Sharia Law would become the norm in that country. He had also written as an authority on guns and firearms, as well as having urged fellow citizens to undertake dramatic actions to protest the gay marriage ruling. Then he left a letter on the altar and shot himself in front of hundreds of tourists at the Notre Dame Cathedral.
Well done, sir.
Now, if we can only find a way to get our right wing gun nut Islamaphobic homophobes to take similar actions here in the states, we'd be well on our way to adding a bit of chlorine to a gene pool that desperately needs it.
One less asshole for France to deal with...
