Disgusting filthy thieves!

How hypocritical is this? Christians are the worst genociders, racists, sexists of history and the greatest forgers of history and they were ‘shocked’ by a horse sacrifice.

And in any case, with what right someones comes into a community, drive them away, their religious rituals and sets his own?

This is a classic example of our ethnic Russian traditions being trampled on by Christianity, which is a religion totally alien to Europe and originating with the Hebrews in foreign lands. The church had controlled and repressed people for ages, as religion is always the tool of conquerors seeking to subdue their new-caught subjects. This repression of individualism, which was ironically continued by communism, is in part responsible for the problematic average Russian mindset nowadays.

I visited this Konevsky/Konevits/Konevitsa monastary last summer, it´s pretty cool except that I never saw this horse stone, mainly because the guide was totally boring and there where too many mosquitos in the forest, so I decided to head for the beach to take some sun and swim in the “small lake”. Inside the monastary there is shop/kiosk where one bottle of regular beer costs 100 rubles(about 3USD). And everyone who has been in Russia knows that is quite much!
