Women went topless in church to celebrate Pope Benedict XVI resignation.
The Femen Women's Power Group which has been making headlines since 2010 for topless feminist, pro-democracy and anti-corruption protests in Russia, Ukraine and London, flashed their breasts in the heart of Paris's Notre Dame Cathedral this morning to celebrate Pope Benedict XVI resignation.
The members of the Femen movement entered the Gothic Cathedral dressed in long coats which they pulled off inside and started ringing the three bells near the alter saying; "Pope no more", "No more homophobe", "Bye bye Benedict"
Scandalized visitors voiced their disapproval, and a French woman said "This is a sacred place, you can't strip here"
The protesters were dragged out of the Cathedral by security men but they remained outside shouting "In gay we trust" and "Get out homophobe"
