Lesbian and gay couples will kiss in front of the Pope

SAME-SEX couples from all over the world have planned to snog each other in the Cathedral square in Barcelona in front of the Pope next month.

A group on Facebook, Queer Kissing Flashmob, which managed to get 12,000 users to agree to go along on November 7 and display their love in public, has been shut down by Facebook, claim the organisers.

This has added more fuel to the fire, and one of the organisers, Marylène Carole, expressed her 'disbelief' that a couple kissing in public could be considered 'outrageous' in this day and age.

“It's difficult to understand how the noble and loving act of kissing your partner can still be defined as 'revolutionary' in the 21st century,” she commented.

“It appears to be a form of censorship – and yet it was only started by a group of friends who have no connections to any political group or any kind of gay association.”

Those who intend to go to Barcelona on November 7 say they will make a point of kissing their other halves in the Cathedral square just as Pope Benedict XVI walks out of the door.
