Anti-Gay Protesters 'Rage' On Topless Femen Activists: VIDEO


Anti-gay activists' marches in France took an appropriately French turn in Paris today when activists from the group Femen, topless and dressed as nuns, got into scuffles with the predominantly Catholic people protesting marriage equality there.

ABC News has the details:

The controversial Ukrainian group Femen, whose topless members stage pranks to support gay rights, have taunted a march in Paris by Catholics who oppose France's draft law to legalize gay marriage.

The Catholic group Civitas organized Sunday's march by several thousand people carrying pro-family banners.

Several Femen activists turned up topless, chanted "in gay we trust" and sprayed white powder from bottles.

That prompted several anti-gay marriage protesters to hit the Femen members and push them to the ground.

Some of the bottles containing the white power were labeled "sperm," as you'll see in not work friendly videos AFTER THE JUMP.

One witness, French feminist writer Caroline Fourest, said of the incident, "When they moved toward the demonstrators, some of (the protesters) ran after them, raging." Five people were arrested.

  2. The catholic attackers in these protests are not true catholics. The bible emphasizes peace, not violence. There is little to be said in the bible about gay marriage, but some extremists seem to jump on the anti-gay wagon, while at the same time being violent!?! There is way more to be said about peace and non-violence in the bible opposed to gay-marriage. Why not focus on that instead? The catholics that protest against gay people are usually the ignorant and violent sadists. Although I do not have faith in any relgion, I do respect peoples opinions and beleifs but ONLY if they are not ignorant. Everyone is entitled to their INFORMED opinions and beleifs, but NOONE has the right to be ignorant. This being said, I do not agree that FEMEN should attack churches, preists, and nuns as a whole. There are a lot of good catholic or christian people that are fine with gay marriage, they should ONLY target those who are, in my opinion, idiots.

    A political cartoon depicting the Catholic bishop "Vingt Trois (23)" having 3 fathers who are in the midst of a 3-way. They are Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.
