Suicidal Protest against Gay Marriage in France

Notre Dame Cathedral was evacuated today, when Dominique Venner, an elderly right-wing historian, decided to blow his brains out on the altar. Thought the details are not entirely clear, there is a suggestion that this was an act of protest against France's new law permitting same sex marriage. Another suggestion is that he was protesting the replacement of his people by Muslims. Some comments on the first story linked above have even theorized Venner was a closet case who killed himself to end his cognitive dissonance. He is supposed to have left a note behind. Perhaps that will shed some light on the mystery.
