Who is impersonating a bishop? I'm just stating what the possible penalties would have been in the "good old days". I think the Russians should get back to just wanting Putin OUT!

Why this was approved in that Church and Pussy Riot's performance wasn't?

Sounds like a good idea for a discussion thread

It may have something to do with one being Christian fellowship and the other being vulgar anarchists.

I would have thought that would be obvious.

While I don't agree with the opulance of the Bishops. I hate it when people think that as Christians, we absolutely must give up every single thing we've got and automatically give it to the poor. They take the story of the rich man and try to apply it to every Christian who has ever lived.

They also, at the same time, ignore the fact that the Bishops preside over an organization, and help it run, and it provides (probably) hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars worth of charity to those hungry people.

It's like the same people who walk into an Orthodox Church and start cursing us for being unChristian and having so many frilly decorations and instead we should use that money for the poor.

We are feeding them spiritually and physically. One is permanent, the other is fleeting. But we can do both for them.

Quote
(Reuters) - The head of the Russian Orthodox Church used a Sunday prayer service and a state TV interview to argue that the church he presides over is under attack from foes he said fear its post-Soviet revival and want to destroy its places of worship.

Patriarch Kirill did not name punk music group Pussy Riot but was clearly referring to the collective, three of whose members were sentenced to jail for performing a "punk prayer" at the altar of a Moscow cathedral during which they criticized President Vladimir Putin.

Pussy riot could be a provocation done by V.V. This might just make him Tsar Vladimir II, although he hasn't admitted it yet. Putin could have used the incident as a distraction, because the church was set up exactly the way that a provocateur would have wanted. (I'm not sure that any Joe Schmoe could bring sound recording equipment into a church without arousing suspicion).

from the article (emphasis mine):
Quote
"It wasn't correct for him to write in support (of the Pussy Riot girls)," said Larisa Krasnova, a retired military sergeant who had been visiting the church with her grandson. "I approve of the fact that they were tried because it's blasphemy and because it's unforgivable."

I sincerely hope this was something that was just lost in translation, but if this woman really believes this, the Russian church has a lot of catechizing to do.

High view to post ratio.

More than just oc.netters are viewing this space. Probably for different reasons than the thread about Metropolitan Job.

Have a feeling a lot of "guests" are hitting this via certain google search terms.

A judge in Russia has ordered websites in the country to remove videos featuring female punk band Pussy Riot from their online content.
....
Judge Marina Musimovich said the video "has elements of extremism, in particular there are words and actions which humiliate various social groups based on their religion." Owners who do not comply with the order could have their websites blocked in the country.
