Thou shalt not take the piss, say Vlad ‘n’ Kirill

From Pussy Riot’s critically acclaimed concert in Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour…

And what exactly were they singing?

"Black robe, golden epaulettes,
All parishioners crawl to bow.
The phantom of liberty is in heaven,
Gay-pride sent to Siberia in chains.

"The head of the KGB, their chief saint,
Leads protesters to prison under escort.
In order not to offend His Holiness,
Women must give birth and love."


"The Church’s praise of rotten dictators,
The cross-bearer procession of black limousines.
A teacher-preacher will meet you at school,
Go to class – bring him money!

"Patriarch Gundyaev believes in Putin,
Bitch, better believe in God instead.
The belt of the Virgin can’t replace mass-meetings,
Mary, Mother of God, is with us in protest!"

English lyrics taken from the Pussy Riot website.

Shockingly effective, by the looks of it.

Free Pussy Riot!
