Eight feminists flashed their breasts in the heart of Paris's Notre Dame cathedral on Tuesday to celebrate Pope Benedict XVI's shock resignation announcement.

The members of the Femen movement entered the Gothic cathedral dressed in long coats which they whipped off inside while ringing three bells near the altar.

"Pope no more!" they cried. "No more homophobe" and "Bye bye Benedict!"

Scandalised visitors voiced their disapproval.

Visit Paris before the Muslims destroy everything.

In the old part of Paris, no building can be taller than Notre Dame. It is a remarkable place.

Yes, appropriated that supporters of the homosexual agenda are against the pope.

Why don’t you call the GOP, complain about this outrage and perhaps these stalwarts will do something about it when you send them a generous monetary contribution.

In the meantime I suggest that you not hold your breath until they take action.

I think they need armed beadles in Catholic churches now. These sluts should have gotten billy-clubbed.

You said: "notice these cowards don’t dare do this in a muslim church!"

Response: Because the Moslems are not "tolerant" and Christians have become "tolerant." Tolerance means in 2013 A.D. an inability to take a stand. The inability to say yes or no.

To put it another way Christian leaders are sick, money grubbing time servers incapable of forming a vision to lead the people. "Where there is no vision the people perish"-The Bible. The Moslems have a vision and the Will to conquer a Civilization.

Well yes - I was just bringing the attention to what the elder lady said about a small minority wanting to change the entire system over a 1% population that felt that change needed to be done - something the politicians here in the US can’t seem to wrap their heads around...same crowd hailing that anew Pope will usher in a more diverse policy on allowing gays into the church to openly express their sexual orientation...that’s all I was pointing to...
