Montpellier, France Mayor Helene MandrouxThe Mayor of Montpellier, France, Helene Mandroux, who made news by marrying the first gay couple after France’s marriage equality law went into effect, has gotten some nasty mail. The Huffington Post reports:

The French mayor has received countless threats, including one with feces, over her part in the marriage. According to Montpellier daily newspaper Midi Libre, since performing the wedding, Mandroux has received many letters that contain insults and threats expressing opposition to gay marriage in France. One of the packages mailed to the French official also contained feces, municipal officers discovered.

The opponents of marriage equality have abandoned all sense of civility in the fight – even the former leader of the movement thinks so.
