Shouting “God is woman!”, a barechested activist attempted to steal a giant likeness of baby Jesus from the Vatican Nativity scene Monday.

An activist for FEMEN, a misguided Ukranian feminist outfit, the protester was tackled and covered by Vatican police before she could run off with baby Jesus. Reuters reports:

A topless activist from the feminist group Femen tried to snatch the statue of the baby Jesus from the Nativity scene in St. Peter’s Square on Monday but was stopped by police as she grabbed it.

A Reuters photographer said the woman jumped over guard rails and rushed onto the larger-than-life Nativity scene shouting “God is woman”. She had the same slogan painted on her bare back.

A Vatican gendarme stopped her from taking the statue and she was detained. The incident happened about two hours before Pope Francis delivered his Christmas message to some 50,000 people in the square.

The group’s website identified her as Alisa Vinogradova and called her a “sextremist”. It says the goal of the group, which was founded in Ukraine, is “complete victory over patriarchy”.

FEMEN activists consider their breasts the ultimate protest weapon and their goal is simple: complete victory over the patriarchy, according to their website:

In the beginning, there was the body, feeling of the woman’s body, feeling of joy because it is so light and free. Then there was injustice, so sharp that you feel it with your body, it immobilizes the body, hinders its movements, and then you find yourself your body’s hostage. And so you turn your body against this injustice, mobilizing every body’s cell to struggle against the patriarchy and humiliation. You tell the world: Our God is a Woman!

Our Mission is Protest!

Our Weapon are bare breasts!

And so FEMEN is born and sextremism is set off.

But these aren’t just any boob-baring feminists, they’re “physically and psychologically ready to implement the humanitarian tasks of any degree of complexity and level of provocation.”

FEMEN female activists are the women with special training, physically and psychologically ready to implement the humanitarian tasks of any degree of complexity and level of provocation. FEMEN activists are ready to withstand repressions against them and are propelled by the ideological cause alone. FEMEN is the special force of feminism, its spearhead militant unit, modern incarnation of fearless and free Amazons.

Does Wonder Woman know about this? Just curious.

FEMEN boasts their core values are sextremism, atheism, and feminism, which explains quite a bit about the kind of woman attracted to their cause. “Cynical, embittered, deeply hurt, and live a loathe-filled life? Like to paint yourself with bad English translations and run around with your knockers tossing about? Then we’re the protest group for you!”

Anyway, FEMEN tried the same stunt back in 2014 with similar results, though better photos, like this one:

As I blogged the last time they pulled this stunt:

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!”

Protip, it’s not novel when you try the same stunt repeatedly. Loses a little something, I think.
