  1. Best of luck, enjoy your day.

  2. “including by telephone, when one man told her to “get bodyguards”.

    WOW. What an example of rugged manhood. Threatening a woman by telephone

      I hope she does, and the homophobic terrorists try something funny and get shot. It’d be hilarious!

  3. Reading about the kind of tactics being used by French marriage-equality opponents, all I can see is that they are in effect “terrorists”.

    As such, they should be prosecuted as domestic terrorists.

    And a sure-fire way to not make ones cause appear in any way extreme, moronic or anti-democratic.

    I hope this incident contributes to the education of the rest of France of the dangerous and dark nature of those who have associated themselves with the opposition to equal marriage.

  5. May Vincent Autin and his husband Bruno Boileau have a wonderful day . . . but I do hope they take very great care of themselves in the coming months, in case homophobic nutters decide to “take action”.

    It would be AWFUL if this first married pair in France were subjected to violence.

    I think these guys are showing immense courage and I wish them well. I don’t know that I could do it given the expressed hostility but someone has to be first. The change in the law is magnificent. What sort of people are so full of hatred of difference that they’d go the lengths that some have gone to in order to deny to us what they can demand as of right? Oh yes: Christians!

  7. Let’s hope the police give them protection should they need it. This reminds me in some ways of the Freedom Riders, the black and white youths who deliberately broke US segregation laws back in the 1960s. The police didn’t give them any protection then though, they deliberately stood back and let racist mobs beat them up. JFK had to set up martial law for a short while to protect them. Still, it saw the beginning of the end of black segregation in the US.

    People will look back on things like this in the future in the same way. A point where history changed for the better, where bigotry lost again.
