France: Marriage Equality Foes Plan to Disrupt Tour de France

Le Tour de FranceAnti gay marriage protesters are planning to disrupt a French sporting event that is to France as Baseball is to the US. Dumb move? Joe.My.God reports:

On Sunday they disrupted the French Open finals match and now anti-gay marriage protesters say they will do the same at the Tour De France. “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.

Sounds like someone’s getting a little desperate…
