Topless women flash Pope in protest against anti-gay Vatican

ROME -- Four women staged a topless demonstration in front of the Pope in St. Peter's Square on Sunday, Jan. 13, protesting the Vatican's anti-gay views.

The protesters from Ukraine-based feminist group FEMEN took off their T-shirts to reveal the slogan "In Gay We Trust" painted on their torsos and yelled "Homophobe, shut up" as the Catholic leader gave a traditional prayer from his window.

The activists were removed by police after sparking anger from pilgrims, reported Reuters.

"Today we go with a message to the Pope to shut his mouth and not to give his advice to those people who decide to legalize gay marriage. We are here to protest homophobia," demonstrator Inna Shevchenko told the Associated Press.
