Sextremist (evidently, this is a thing), Iana Zhdanova kidnapped baby Jesus from the nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City Thursday. Zhdanova had “God is a woman” scribbled on her naked torso as she accosted the infant and attempted to flee. Vatican police intervened, returned baby Jesus to His manger, and then covered and arrested Zhdanova.

RT captured the whole ordeal:

Zhdanova is a FEMEN activist. According to FEMEN’s website, the sextremist act was premeditated and part of a larger plan to “hunt for Bethlehem babies”:

FEMEN sextremist kidnapped a newborn baby in Vatican. FEMEN opens a hunt for the Bethlehem babies under anticlerical campaign “Massacre of the Innocents”. The campaign is dedicated to the criticism of the senturies-old Vatican stance on women’s rights for own body and reproductive function. The maniacal desire to control women’s fertility is a common trait of many religions, National Socialism, nationalism and other antediluvian, anti-humanist ideologies.

Abortion is sacred!

The hypocrisy… it burns. Leave it to feminists to call a campaign that advocates the mass murder of the unborn the “Massacre of the Innocents.”  Forget that the actual Massacre of the Innocents was Herod’s campaign to murder all male babies and young children, because after chatting with the Magi he was all, “Jesus? Pssh. I’m the only King!”

Ah, modern feminism.

FEMEN touts Zhdanova’s arrest as one that will lead to an “historic trial” where she will be judged for hurting the feelings of religious people. They went on to say it’s the “sacred duty of every woman…to take away the child from Vatican!”

Somewhere along the way, I missed this sacred duty memo. 

After spending the night in jail, Zhdanova was released and subsequently kicked out of Vatican City.
