They really did desecrate an Orthodox Church. They showed disdain for what many other people in Russia, and America, by the way, think of as very important for their lives. That is why these women need to go back to prison the first time they break the law again. They want attention, and they will do anything to get it. They are a disgrace. They are not championing human rights or freedom of expression. They are hooligans, and they should be dealt with accordingly.

@Cleveland2012, the stand-up routine they performed in the cathedral (I think it was the cathedral) shouldn’t be a prisonable offense. You’re half way to joining the Taliban making such statements.
Putting them in prison for what they did is what is getting all the attention at the moment. They (or someone they know) has probably made a small fortune out of this.

Pussy Riot are clowns not unlike Al Sharpton in US. Whether or not they deserved their prison sentences is debatable (I think 30 days for disorderly behavior would have been more than sufficient) but they are definitely not to be taken seriously.
