There is a very funny sect of extreme Christians in Russia. They look really cool. They became popular for breaking up a Moscow gay parade this year, together with some radical Orthodox Christian priests. At that time gay parade was canceled. That included a public speech of Moscow mayor who said something like “Moscow and Russia are not that liberal to allow this to happen”. You can imagine how far Moscow and Russia are liberal after that.
Now, from their point of view, which doesn’t differ from a point of a Russian Orthodox Church officials, Madonna shouldn’t have a concert in September, 2006 in Moscow. She simply doesn’t have any right for that, because from their point of view she is totally evil pop star.
They wear black cloths which is a wild mix of German Nazi military cloths with some Russian military elements and a lot of Christian symbolics and items.
At this time they also carried a lot of big portraits of Madonna, expressing a true hatred to her. After I looked to the guy to the right, I thought that he is probably trying to make the same face as Madonna has on the face, probably that is some way of Extreme Magic, self authentication with the object of hatred with a further applying some other methods for himself thus making this methods come to the object’s life.
After those efforts his symmetry line somehow moved to the left.
Getting no visible results from Orthodox magic they started the main part of the show, the portrait destruction. They didn’t burn the posters like some guys from Middle East do with posters of USA or Israel leaders, they tear them by hand. Probably they worship fire and consider Madonna to be an inappropriate sacrifice.
The younger members of the sect probably are not yet worth of wearing full uniform, only haircuts and a flag point to their affiliation with the gang.
After the main part of the ceremony was finished, they decided to make a short press conference,
What I like most is that fir con with a skull inside, at the top of the stake the “left-symmetry” guy is holding.
…and a short blessings were grated to all who were interested.
This policeman was also interested probably.
Later that evening they celebrated a new event. This guy in the middle far less Christian than some kind of neo Nazi, what a strange union they are.
As it was mentioned above, also official Russian Church doesn’t want Madonna to come, and due to this it has been seed that President Putin had to refuse his daughter to have a family dinner with Madonna that was planned, because he can’t go against the church.
