French Gay Marriage Opponents to Target Tour De France for Protests

That will show them!


Despite already being legalized, and despite the first weddings taking place, French opponents of gay marriage are planning to use the "global visibility" of the Tour de France to publicize their fight, it was announced on Wednesday.

"From June 29th to July 21st, we will have an incredible global visibility  to show our fight against the law," read a statement on a new Facebook page created to inspire protesters to line the 3,360-kilometre route. 

And while the first stage of the race will get rolling on the island of Corsica, the remaining 20 stages will cover well near every corner of mainland France, offering protestors across the country the chance to snatch a bit of prime-time coverage.
