After Openly Gay French Mayor Talks about Marriage Equality, He Gets Bullets in the Mail
Another disturbing story out of France, showing the dark side of the anti-gay protesters - Thierry Speitel, mayor of the town of Sigolsheim, received a threat in the mail for supporting marriage equality. Towleroad reports:

The threat comes after Speitel gave a recent interview to the local newspaper Derniers Nouvelles d'Alsace in which he talked about the probability he would marry his partner and the prospect of them adopting children. He also slammed the homophobic incidents that have taken place in France over recent months, that have been blamed on the poisonous atmosphere created by some of the more extreme opponents of gay marriage. Along with the bullets, Speitel, a practicing Catholic, was sent a copy of his newspaper interview, which contained scrawled handwritten homophobic insults.


I guess bigots don't like being called bigots, huh?
