The pope speaks from his balcony weekly, and lots of people attend in St Peters Square below to hear him say his hateful, anti-gay messages. This week, four pro-gay FEMEN activists from Ukraine stripped to the waist, bared their breasts and their inked-on messages, and screamed “SHUT UP” at the pope. Then they were (quickly) dragged away from the devout by the police. Not that the police protected the protesters from being assaulted by at least one woman while they were being manhandled away into custody.
