When a Kiss Is a Popemobile Protest


A gay couple lock in a kiss while the Popemobile passes through the streets of Madrid. They were what was left of a foiled "kiss-in" protesting the Roman Catholic Church's "moral condemnations of sexuality," according to a Facebook page used to organize.

Hundreds of LGBT protesters planned to kiss while Pope Benedict XVI was en route through Madrid, but police blocked the protesters before they could meet up. The activists had planned to join up on the major artery Calle Serrano, along which the pope later traveled in his bulletproof white vehicle for a welcoming ceremony in Plaza Cibeles Square. -- Lucas Grindley
