Monday’s Religion News Roundup: Ganges gathering * Stripping at St. Pete’s * Moral McCarthyism

Can you guess the site of the world’s largest religious gathering?

If you said the Ganges River in India, where more than a million men and women bathed today to cleanse their sins, you’d be aces. The photos make the holy rite look like a cross between Burning Man and that Zion’s Party scene in The Matrix.

Speaking of wild photos, four feminists bared their breasts in St. Peter’s Square to protest the Catholic Church’s stance on gay marriage. Meanwhile, the Vatican underlined its opposition to gay adoptions.

Elsewhere in Europe, several hundred thousand people gathered in Paris to oppose President Francois Hollande’s plan to legalize gay marriage and adoption.

Egypt’s Grand Mufti says interfaith tolerance, not religious police, should be the path forward.
