ParisThings are still simmering around the new gay marriage law in France. Pink News reports:

Equal marriage opponents in France took to the streets on Friday to protest against the prison term given to a man who was part of an illegal anti-equal marriage demonstration, who fled from police, and gave a false identity when caught. Demonstrations took place in Paris and Bordeaux on Friday evening, against the sentence of two months in prison, two months suspended, and a 1000[euro] (#850) fine against Nicolas Bernard-Busse, reports RFI. 500 people demonstrated in Paris, and around 200 in Bordeaux, with supporters chanting about a “socialist dictatorship”, against the sentence handed down on Wednesday.

It’s done. Let it go.
