Moscow - The song sung by the Pussy Riot punk singers was blasphemous from the point of view of the Orthodox Church, Judge Marina Syrova said while pronouncing the sentence handed down to the punk trio. 

"Once on the solea and ambo, Tolokonnikova instantly connected the microphone to the sound-reproducing equipment and switched on the record of a song, the content of which, from the point of view of the Orthodox Church, is blasphemous and insulting to believers and for priests," Syrova said.

What is blasphemous is "priests" in the Ku Klux Klan Rooshan KGB rooshan orthodox "church" making icons of Putler and praying to Putler and kissing his hand.

About 18 minutes into this video (you can fast forward to it) from Georgian news TV, you will see video of these KGB "priests" kissing Putler's hands, praying to his icon, shooting guns, and setting up inflatable "churches."

That's what is blasphemous.

"I thought the Church loved all its children," she said. "But it seems the Church loves only those children who believe in Putin."
