Paris Gay Kiss In Marred By Threats Of Violence In the Name Of Religion (Video)

A gay Valentine’s Day kiss-in that was originally to be held in front of Notre Dame Cathedral was moved because Christian Fundamentalist (who call themselves “Catholic” websites put out a call to action to “defend their faith against this provocation” against the ‘aids bags’, ‘sodomites’and other homophobic insults. The websites called for a violent response so the organizers decided to change the location to place Saint Michel in the nearby Latin Quarter, after the police strongly encouraged it, saying they could not protect them in case of trouble.

The kiss in was held peacefully at St-Michel but some gays went to Notre Dame anyway and witnesses are saying 200 Christian activists were expecting them, and after they started kissing, they were attacked with motorbike helmets and kicked.”

“We can’t protect you.” The police no longer protect people from violence? Wonderful

Video of the religious zealots at Notre Dame screaming (what I believe is) “HABEMUS PAPAM” which is Latin for “We have a pope!”
