Taking back the Church for France.
LYONS, June 17, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Approximately 200 young Catholics came to the defense of the Cathedral of Lyons, France, during a "kiss-in" protest held by homosexuals in front of the building last month.
The homosexuals reportedly came on the eve of the "World Day Against Homophobia" in May to kiss each other in front of the cathedral, presumably in protest against the Catholic Church's 2,000-year-old condemnation of homosexual sex acts.
In a video recently released by ACI Prensa, the counter-protesters can be seen forming a line several layers deep in front of the cathedral, holding up crucifixes, the flag of Vatican City, and a large banner stating "No More Catholophobia." They chanted slogans such as "Saint Jean (the Cathedral) is ours!" and "Europe, Youth, Christianity!"
In video recordings of the event the homosexual demonstrators are seen jeering, blaspheming, and insulting the Catholics, while the Catholic counter-demonstrators are seen kneeling, praying, and singing hymns.
The homosexualist protesters were eventually dispersed by police as they lacked permission for the demonstration. Some of the Catholics were also arrested by police.
However, according to ACI Prensa, the counter-demonstrators rejoiced that the "kiss-in" had not gone ahead as scheduled. - LifeSiteNews
