The last march against gay marriage?

The Socialist government is concerned that Sunday's march against gay marriage could get out of hand. In the past week, the contentious gay marriage bill was signed into law by François Hollande. Just days later, a prominent far-right nationalist killed himself on the altar of Notre Dame, seemingly in protest against the law. The incident led to further divisions within the anti-gay marriage movement, perhaps forcing one of its spokeswomen to stay at home this Sunday.
