Topless feminists upset Belgian Church, but not bishop

The Catholic Church in Belgium on Wednesday angrily denounced Femen topless protesters who targeted its primate at a conference though the archbishop himself remained composed and apparently at prayer throughout.

The four protesters leapt out of their seats at a debate on blasphemy and freedom of expression held at the Brussels' Free University (ULB) campus Tuesday evening, baring their breasts and squirting water at Archbishop Andre Leonard as they accused him of homophobia.

Security guards threw the women out of the hall within minutes as the archbishop remained quietly seated, his hands crossed apparently in prayer.

The Belgian religious leader, a known conservative, has often been criticised for his stand on gay issues.

def not guilty.

You know, these feminists are supposed to stand up for women being treated equal, women not being exploited for their bodies or be seen as only as a sex object.
But most people would have clicked right over this article had it not said ‘topless’. Most men that viewed this article looked at their boobs, didn’t read the article, could care less about their cause.
I say to these ladies... keep it up! Hell, why keep pants on? Come on, strip all the way! Lets see it!
They could be protesting asparagus and I wouldn’t give a hoot.
“oh man not another hippie protest... man this sucks... wait, whats that? .... ALRIGHT! BOOBS! Yeah!”

They're not stupid enough to protest Islam in an Islamic country, or in a predominantly-Muslim "no-go" zone in the West.

“ they accused him of homophobia.”

Gee, looking at those pictures, why would ANYONE fear unstable homsexuals who are looking to physically and verbally assault you.

Makes NO sense, right?

sheer hypocrisy and cognitive dissonance

Not to mention the fact that lesbians -- women with a sexuality disorder -- seek to make a point by displaying organs whose biological purpose is maternal.

Did anyone ever ask them why when they are protesting in Russia, Germany, France or Belgium they all write on themselves in English?

Heh, heh, Dave Barry was being interviewed by Ann Curry or some such & she was asking him about guy habits:

“For example, why do guys, unlike women, like to channel surf? What are they looking for?”

Dave replied, “A breast.”

Ann (hand across throat): “Uhh.....our guest has been Dave Barry we’ll be right back!!”

Old Putin looked like he was puckering up for a kiss. It was a titillating scene, to be sure.

It's apparent these women have chosen to live their lives contrary to church teaching. They are free to do do. Considering the church has no power to compel these women to accept her edicts, why the rage?

They have a need for some kind of validation, probably because of neglect or abuse in their childhood. They're angry at truth, because they want two essentially contradictory things. They're screaming, "Notice me, notice me! I want to do or be what I damn well please, but you have to like me." Not only like, but accept and sanction.
