Imprisoned Pussy Riot members underwent daily ‘forced gynecological examinations’

• Rawstory

After nearly two years in prison for singing a song about Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s main cathedral, the women of Pussy Riot are no less defiant. Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova have walked free from prison , and pledged to devote their energies to changing the political system in Russia and improving conditions inside its prisons.

Bareheaded despite the -25C cold, Tolokonnikova walked out of prison in the eastern city of Krasnoyarsk, flashing a victory sign to reporters waiting outside. “How do you like our Siberian weather here?” she asked, before shouting “Russia without Putin!”...

The people who protested in a church during a christmas mass are the same type of people who are the "pussy riot".  It is not the right to protest but their choice of when and how. I wonder if these protesters would have the berries to go to a masque say in the middle east and do this. I suspect not.

Might makes... well, not right, but definitely, it makes what happens.

Your Government is the one who you cave in to. If you cave in to Obama, then he is your Government. If you cave in to Putin, then he is your Government. When you cave in to death, it is your government... for a time.

Now, I'm not saying this because I am any stronger than anyone else. But, I am saying it because Obama and Putin know when to cut their losses and let things ride. The both of them would become government over the other if they could. But they can't, so they cut their losses and let things ride.

The point is, you can't move the moon. You can't jump to the moon. You can only protect your family to the extent you are able. You can only protect them to the limits of your strength and wisdom. Beyond that, you are caving in to the government of uncertainty, or pandemonium, or even chaos.

The Pussy Riot members are remaining their own government, even if it kills them. If they die, they will die (as all people do) subject to their own government. Why their own government? Because they selected self-government over Putin-style dictatorship.

Thanks to the Almighty that we are pulling out of subjection to a Government that is not free. Thanks be that on this Christmas holiday time, we are pulling out to freedom, and the Government of God and not the Government of man.

Sorry but from what I seen in the news and from reports on several on line reports, the fact the "pusy riot members went to jail was all on their on. Their methods leave a lot to be desired as well as were they chose to protest.
