A topless activist protesting “the centuries-old Vatican stance on women’s rights for own body and reproductive function,” attempted to swipe the baby Jesus from a nativity scene in Vatican City, while yelling “God is women.” The activist, Iana Aleksandrovna Azhdanova, is a member of the anti-Christian group Femen, a group run by a man who likes hot topless girls.
Azhdanova was detained, but then released by the Holy See, as reported at the Associated Press (via theBlaze).
As reported at the French source Lemonde (as translated):
This action was conducted as part of the campaign of Femen [ironically] entitled ‘Massacre of the Innocents,’ which intends to protest against what the movement described as ‘manic need’ of the religions of ‘controlling women’s fertility.’

Earlier this year, activists from the group hurled ‘blood-soaked’ panties at the Archbishop of Madrid, as reported at the Examiner. The group was protesting Spain’s abortion law, which is allowed “only in rape cases or when there is a serious mental or physical health risk to the mother.” Femen describes itself as “an international women’s movement of brave topless female activists painted with the slogans and crowned with flowers.”
A sincerely disturbing example of “feminist” activism took place last year by participants in the 28th annual National Meeting of Women in Argentina, where the activists attacked men who locked arms while protecting a cathedral.
As reported at LifeSite News,
The women, many of them topless, spray-painted the men’s crotches and faces and swastikas on their chests and foreheads, using markers to paint their faces with Hitler-like moustaches. They also performed obscene sexual acts in front of them and pushed their breasts onto their faces, all the while shouting ‘get your rosaries out of our ovaries.’

As reported at the Examiner,
They [Femen] believe in “Sextremism,” “Atheism,” and Feminism” and seek to “to ideologically undermine the fundamental institutes of patriarchy – dictatorship, sex-industry, and church – by putting these institutes through subversive trolling to force them to strategic surrender,” among other such bizarre objectives.
Other recent antics included Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel being pelted with mayonnaise and french fries in a protest against “austerity.”
