On Monday, Archbishop of Madrid Antonio María Rouco Varela was attacked by the group "Femen," who described the assault on their website.

The group describes itself as "an international women’s movement of brave topless female activists painted with the slogans and crowned with flowers." They believe in "Sextremism," "Atheism," and Feminism" and seek to "to ideologically undermine the fundamental institutes of patriarchy - dictatorship, sex-industry, and church – by putting these institutes through subversive trolling to force them to strategic surrender," among other such bizarre objectives.

The activists were protesting Spain's abortion law, which is allowed "only in rape cases or when there is a serious mental or physical health risk to the mother," as reported at the Guardian in December.

According to their website, five "sextremists" tackled the Archbishop "screaming 'Toño fuera de mi coño' (Toño get out of my pu**y)'"

The article, written in broken English continued,

"On their bare breasts could be read 'Stop mafia episcopal' (Stop episcopal mafia) 'Aborto es sagrado' (Abortion is sacred) and 'Toño fuera de mi coño.' The archbishop has suffered a rain of panties soaked with the blood of our illegal abortions."

The group declared that they demand "the total separation between the State and Spanish Church and total stop of Gallardon’s abortion law reform. If this does not happen, our naked war will continue against anyone who threaten our right to abort!"

A video of the attack can be seen here (graphic).
