  1. If it does turn violent, it will be all her doing regardless of whether she is there or not.

    Coward!

  2. You lost, get over it and find a new cause for your hatred and bigotry.

  3. It’s not true that the deluded man who shot himself in Notre Dame did so after posting a blog slamming equal marriages. Yes, he was a vile homophobe who opposed equal rights for gay people and he did mention equal marriage in his last blog; however, the blog was actually about the rise of Islamic fundamentalism in the Western world.

    The problem for me as a gay person is that I have to ‘deal’ with homophobes like him and also recognise the valid point he makes about Muslim homophobia.

  4. This might be a dangerous news. She knows something, or she’s even inciting the violence from behind, but drawing back from protests just to turn out innocent if something extreme happens.

  5. Poor France, an exporter of culture, and progressive thoughts to a country dominated by right-wing fanatics.

    The French Revolution did not eradicate the thought catholic, completely, perhaps soon after the French Revolution the country back to the practice table-turning and follow the theology of Allan Kaderc,could remedy the void that the lack of Catholicism left to people who could not live without religion, and so would a doctrine much more espiritualisada and less fundamentalist.
    It is widespread in Brazil with more than 4 million fans 2.2% of the population, and religion is a very pro-gay.

  6. Another far right catholic inciting violence.

    The cowardly instigator, she opened pandora’s box, she called for blood, she used every available opportunity to spout her vile ideas to the Nation via French media. Now, this pathetic creature cries victim and declares her rights to have tax funded guards. Typical religious nut craving her 15 minutes. Well, the damage has been done and the LGTB folk of france will never forget. Maybe they ought to demand guards also as they promenade the streets of Paris this Sunday amongst the far right, religious crazies she has spent the past 11 months rallying. Frigide Barjot shame on you!

      Ironically, her surname is slang for ‘idiot’. :)

        It is apt, but its deliberate on her part – Frigide Barjot is her stage name as a comedian (I’d imagine because it sounds like Bridgit Bardot and ends up meaning “Frigid nutter”)

    Although it may not be a nice thing to say, I only wish the radical far right disrupt the demonstration and violence ensues further the majority of the decent French people away from religious loons. Has anyone noticed the silence of the Roman cult’s hierarchy in all this, the ones who instigated andsupported their campaign throughout?

    1. LostinFrance 24 May 2013, 5:38pm

      I know! and there I was thinking suicide at Notre Dame was Catholics greatest shame/sin… perhaps those who believe in Hell are the most deserving of their place in it

    2. To be fair the Imams and Rabbis havent been condeming it either! Also notice David Burrows/Anne Widdecombe types here in Britain are very quick to point the finger when one aggressive gay guy attacks a faithful god-fearing Catholic or Anglican, or when Bed and Breakfast owners are taken to court for discriminating but then they are silent when their own flock do something bad?

  9. Do you know how you could stop the violence from starting? Stop the movement that you started. Start the violence but step back once you become a part of it, no surprise really. Really just shows the calibre of the people championing the anti-equal marriage campaign

  10. She’s still scum, so I hope she doesn’t think this changes anything about her part in inciting the anti-gay murder lobby in France (Vichy Nazis).

    She is beneath contempt. Shame on France for not prosecuting her.

    Violence seems to be the aim of these nasty people. Bash a gay for God, seems to be their sole purpose for existing. She should hang her head in shame, go away and leave the civilized world alone now that she has lost.

  12. El Gabal: Or more precisely, the French National Front. Take a look at her Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frigide_Barjot

  13. Isn’t there a hate speech law (she called for blood), to get her prosecuted. Such scums should face the law….they re playing with human lives!

    Who the hell are they demonstrating against except the government? More likely she doesn’t want nicked or filled in over a lost cause (that in part she kicked off but thats another issue)

    She sowed the wind, now she will reap the whirlwind.
