VATICAN CITY (AP) Four women have gone topless in St. Peter's Square to protest the Vatican's opposition to gay marriage.

Police quickly took the women away Sunday, and the pope appeared not to have been disturbed as he delivered his traditional prayer from his studio window overlooking the piazza.

If it is who I think it is - i.e., FEMEN - then you might be pleasantly surprised.

The article didn’t say for sure that it was FEMEN, but they were Ukrainian gals, so if not FEMEN proper, then a group taking inspiration from their tactics.

FEMEN is free to come and protest me personally in my apartment all day long. I’ll even serve tea or coffee, whichever they prefer.

Heh. I know they’re pretty active in Ukraine and some parts of the former Eastern Bloc. Their tactics are, shall we say, unique. And guaranteed to get media attention, which is what they want.

Ok I am confused. How does it figure that women exposing their breasts induce the Pope to sanction homosexual marriage?

I checked the link ... they're not physically repulsive.

Mentally and morally ... they are sewers.

May God abundantly bless them with the grace of repentance and conversion.

Sure, ladies. That is, of course, the usual way the Vatican decides on theology — by responding favorably to bullying. Do your husbands? Is there any logic in the world these days?

"Homophobia" is an invented and intentionally deceptive word meaning an irrational fear of homosexuals. Other than in prison, in a dark alley, or in the scene from Deliverance, I doubt that an actual fear of homosexuals exists, let alone an irrational fear. These protesters need to learn what matters in life - and considering where they chose to scream for attention, I know where they should look first:

Exodus 20:20 - And Moses said unto the people, Fear not: for God is come to prove you, and that his fear may be before your faces, that ye sin not.

Deuteronomy 5:29 - O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

Deuteronomy 10:12 - And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.

Joshua 24:14 Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth.

Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures for ever.

Psalms 112:1 - Praise ye the LORD. Blessed is the man that fears the LORD, that delights greatly in his commandments.

Instead they choose to scream in rage and exemplify:

Proverbs 14:16 - A wise man fears, and departs from evil: but the fool rages, and is confident.

Squiggle Hair and Green Hair seem to be enjoying the 'attention'.

Why don’t these degenerates do what the King of England did when he couldn’t get the Catholic church to grant him divorce; invent a new church.

Bless their hearts ... did they think an 85-year-old European has never seen a breast? If nothing else, he's surrounded by magnificent classical art! This display may have reminded him of the displays of lower primates in the zoo.

At least they aren't throwing poo.

That's definitely not FEMEN.

Fun with poo is more a male thing, I think. It seemed like it from the “Occupy” scenes.

Feminism: The belief that men are gross, disgusting, ignorant pigs ... and that women should strive to be just like them.

I do, after all, have six sons ... and my data indicate that bodily-function humor and similar pursuits are more typical of the male sex. It’s only about 150 yards from the park to our house, but who’s doing their business in the woods? Not the girls!

I was a teenage boy, once ...

I have observed that men and women are equally capable of gross, disgusting, ignorant piggishness ... but that they normally find different ways of expressing it. Also, that both sexes tend to moderate it a bit in mixed company.

OBTW, if you're having trouble with deer attacking your vegetable garden you might tell the menfolks that they, each and every one, are walking talking deer-repellant factories. FWIW.

The technique is to apply the deer-repellant to the ground around the vegetable garden.

Not to the garden itself.

Just to be clear.

&&&
Because their goal is to destroy the Church. The Evil One does not want an alternate church; he wants the one true Church obliterated.

I think getting topless to protest something is a hollow and meaningless gesture. How about hunger strike unto death or self-immolation? Those are impressive!

You type the truth Bigg Red. It’s just like the queers that needed to put their “Gay Pole” in the midst of the Nativity scene rather that make their own statement separately in the public park.

They should have let them show their breasts and covered up their heads. They are two baggers.

Thank you. We have cats that go in the garden, but they also kill rabbits.

I’ve been told that our 6’ board fence wouldn’t keep deer out, if we had something they wanted.

It worked in the sense that we are now, vaguely, aware of some protest. Wow, naked women, even passing the cracker crumbs test. Now, back to what we were doing. They can go join Pussy Riot in jail.

We just have to hang on and remember that our God is bigger than the one that they worship. I see unsettling times ahead for us, though. Many trials.

God bless and keep you.

Yes...the “Classical Art’ was the first thing that came to my mind too.

Leftists have a very distorted idea of the mindset and sensibilities of Christians. They have this bizarre notion that by exposing themselves, they will win the hearts of those who don’t agree with them.

Eek.

Yeah, lets go topless. That'll convince people of the injustice of standingagainst homo marriage.
