In peaceful protest of the Catholic Church’s stance against homosexuality and gay marriage, a crowd of activists staged a massive “kiss-in” session in front of Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI on Sunday as he limbered through Barcelona inside his bullet-proof popemobile—on his way to a mass in the city’s new basilica, the Sagrada Familia.

“The Church resists every form of denial of human life and gives its support to everything that would promote the natural order in the sphere of the institution of the family … the indissoluble love of a man and a woman is the effective context of human life in its gestation, birth, growth, and natural end,” the pope said at the mass.

Reuters has video of the kissing protesters.
