Concerned Women Are Concernstipated About Russian Punkers Pussy Riot
"The group staged a protest against President Vladimir Putin inside the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, a Russian Orthodox Church in Moscow. Their 'punk prayer' spewed hate-laced anti-Christian lyrics as they stood on the solea (platform in front of the altar). From the concealment of their balaclava masks they 'courageously' followed the PR example of fading American singer Madonna -- knowing that the quickest way to generate a flood of media attention is to launch attacks against religion, the more heavily laced with profanity, crudity, and vulgarity the better.
"The media -- both in Russia and in the U.S. -- ignores the religious bigotry directed at Christianity and, instead, jumps to the defense of anyone who shows intolerance towards the church. It is apparent from the closing statements of the three Russian feminists on trial that they are not sorry for their actions and, in fact, view themselves as the victims, not the Christians that they denigrated. The punk rock group entered the sanctuary with the intent to insult Christians, and when they were held accountable, they claimed that it was someone else's fault. If you want to rage against that which you perceive to be unjust or unfair, it would go a long way toward credibility to also accept responsibility for your actions." - CWA Senior Fellow Janet Crouse, writing for American Thinker.
