Four women stripped off their tops and bared their breasts in St. Peter’s Square Sunday to protest the Vatican’s opposition to gay marriage.
The women, activists from the Ukrainian feminist group Femen, had painted “In Gay We Trust” and “Shut Up” on their bodies to make their point.
The pope, delivering his traditional prayer from his studio window overlooking the piazza, apparently wasn’t disturbed by the commotion as police hauled them away.
Protester Inna Shevchenko told the Associated Press, “Today we are here to protest against homophobia.”
