Pussy Riot on 60 Minutes

It's interesting that the Russian Orthodox church is one of the most revered institutions in post-Soviet Russia.  And for the record Pussy Riot didn't desecrate the church.  There's one moment during their protest where they bow down to Mary, make the sign of the cross, and ask her to deliver the nation from Putin:

These women are true patriots willing to put it all on the line for their beliefs.  And they call themselves "feminists"...so much respect.

After watching Lesley Stahl's report, I went and found their complete video:

They are a classic Punk Band, outrageous, offensive, love us or hate us, there is no middle ground. 

Rock on Pussy Riot, Rock on.

Thanks, Walter, for the video; I couldn't stomach more than a minute of Stahl's pomposity. Now I want people to imagine Pussy Riot performing in St Patrick's Cathedral in NYC. What do you think would have happened, and how would they have been treated? Lenny Bruce was jailed for saying that Cardinal Spellman looked like Shirley Temple, something a priest told him, and he didn't say it in St Pat's. I really don't think our government loves free speech anymore than Putin does.
