Topless feminists upset Belgian Church, but not bishop
AFP ^ | 4/25/2013

Posted on 04/25/2013 4:09:21 AM PDT by markomalley

The Catholic Church in Belgium on Wednesday angrily denounced Femen topless protesters who targeted its primate at a conference though the archbishop himself remained composed and apparently at prayer throughout.

The four protesters leapt out of their seats at a debate on blasphemy and freedom of expression held at the Brussels' Free University (ULB) campus Tuesday evening, baring their breasts and squirting water at Archbishop Andre Leonard as they accused him of homophobia.

Security guards threw the women out of the hall within minutes as the archbishop remained quietly seated, his hands crossed apparently in prayer.

The Belgian religious leader, a known conservative, has often been criticised for his stand on gay issues.

Why don’t they try this with Muslims? If they did I (might) have more respect for them...maybe.

Slide 15. I’m not sure I would be doing that considering where that container may have been.

The Rooskies incarcerate their blasphemous attention whores, the Europeans expel them from the venue, and the U.S. government puts them on taxpayer-funded welfare.

Wow!!!!!!

That was ugly. No wonder those broads are lesbians.Only another ugly broad would want sex with any of them. They wouldn’t even get prettier at closing time.

The Bishop handled himself with dignity while they made fools of themselves.

D u u u u d e !

The chick [term used loosely] with the sign is in dire need of +situps / -twinkies

Absent the concept of 'gentleman', many females would need to recalibrate 180°

The most amazing thing is that picture 4 totally captures the sheer hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance on the left.

It shows a woman throwing an unknown substance all over a bishop's body.....

.... while the second woman holds a sign that proclaims "MY BODY, MY RULES".

So apparantly it is "MY BODY, MY RULES; THE BISHOP'S BODY, *ALSO* MY RULES."

They DO protest against Islam in front of Mosques.

They had a major protest against Islam in Paris and Germany just a few weeks ago. See Femen stages a topless jihad (warning: has pics, not safe for work). FR thread from April 5

Topless Jihad in Kiev (above) in front of a mosque.

NICE POINT, Laz.

The protesters have self-negated their own negative display. In this posture the negative + negative is compounded and additive rather than becoming anything positive, and we can all look on them (if we must) as being at least 2x dumber than they appear in the images.

It's apparent these women have chosen to live their lives contrary to church teaching. They are free to do do.

Considering the church has no power to compel these women to accept her edicts, why the rage?

In contrast to the protester that strutted her stuff to Putin (leading him to obviously think “Nice hooters”), these four are just skanks.

What’s the use of having semi-naked females if they aren’t even worth looking at?

I thought feminists were always shouting “Keep your hands off our bodies!!”

An actual mosque protester who IMO is Not Guilty.

She seems to be enjoying all the attention......

This interests me none. I just clicked on it to see a boob.



Thats what these hippie chicks can take away from this...
that 90% of people looked to see a boob....
analyze the boob... (hmm, not to saggy, well proportioned, not bad, I give her a 7.)
Then 5 seconds after closing the article completely forget about it forever.

Everyone in the room can look at these *women and say:

“You have changed nothing. You confirmed everyone’s belief that you are raving lunatics. And, we have all seen you naked. HAHAHHA... dumbbitches”

def not guilty.

You know, these feminists are supposed to stand up for women being treated equal, women not being exploited for their bodies or be seen as only as a sex object.
But most people would have clicked right over this article had it not said ‘topless’. Most men that viewed this article looked at their boobs, didn’t read the article, could care less about their cause.
I say to these ladies... keep it up! Hell, why keep pants on? Come on, strip all the way! Lets see it!
They could be protesting asparagus and I wouldn’t give a hoot.
“oh man not another hippie protest... man this sucks... wait, whats that? .... ALRIGHT! BOOBS! Yeah!”

They're not stupid enough to protest Islam in an Islamic country, or in a predominantly-Muslim "no-go" zone in the West.

“...as they accused him of homophobia.”

Gee, looking at those pictures, why would ANYONE fear unstable homsexuals who are looking to physically and verbally assault you.

Makes NO sense, right?

sheer hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance

Not to mention the fact that lesbians -- women with a sexuality disorder -- seek to make a point by displaying organs whose biological purpose is maternal.

Did anyone ever ask them why when they are protesting in Russia, Germany, France or Belgium they all write on themselves in English?

Heh, heh, Dave Barry was being interviewed by Ann Curry or some such & she was asking him about guy habits:

“For example, why do guys, unlike women, like to channel surf? What are they looking for?”

Dave replied, “A breast.”

Ann (hand across throat): “Uhh.....our guest has been Dave Barry we’ll be right back!!”

Old Putin looked like he was puckering up for a kiss. It was a titillating scene, to be sure.

They have a need for some kind of validation, probably because of neglect or abuse in their childhood. They're angry at truth, because they want two essentially contradictory things. They're screaming, "Notice me, notice me! I want to do or be what I damn well please, but you have to like me." Not only like, but accept and sanction.
