Punk protesters got what they deserved
The tide of protest against the two-year jail sentence of the 'punk' women in Moscow (Mercury, Saturday) seems to completely disregard the right of Christian pilgrims to worship in peace in their own church.
If you read the lyrics of the song the women performed, you can see how truly offensive it would be for anyone in a church to be forced to listen to. Musicians such as Sir Paul McCartney talk about free speech for the women and, at the same time, the judge in the case allegedly receives death threats from the band's supporters; so much for her freedom of speech.
President Putin probably couldn't care less what these women have said about him. The point is they illegally entered sacred space that provides peace and sanctuary from the world, blasphemed it, made a video of their actions and then let it be seen by millions worldwide.
They broke into private property and prevented other people from practising their freedom of religion and their freedom of assembly. You can't do that on private property or in a lot of public places, it's called disorderly conduct. If they did not want to be punished, they should not have committed the crime.
