FOUR women have gone topless in St Peter’s Square to protest against the Vatican’s opposition to gay marriage.

Police quickly took the women away, and the Pope appeared not to have been disturbed as he delivered his traditional prayer from his studio window overlooking the piazza.

On their bare backs, the women had painted slogans “In Gay We Trust,” and “Shut Up”.

One of the protesters, Inna Shevchenko, said: “Today we are here to protest against homophobia.”
