Facebook Shuts Down Pope Kiss-In

Facebook Shuts Down Pope Kiss-In


Organizers of a same-sex kiss-in planned for when Pope Benedict XVI visits Spain next month say that Facebook has closed down their page promoting the event.

According to the Reader, the Queer Kissing Flashmob generated interest among 12,000 Facebook users for its plan to hold the kiss-in in Cathedral Square in Barcelona on November 7. Then Facebook shut the group down, organizers claim.

"This has added greater fuel to the fire, and one of the organisers, Marylene Carole, expressed her 'disbelief' that a couple kissing in public could be considered 'outrageous' in this day and age," reported the Reader.
