Church officials at a German cathedral have filed charges against three masked activists who disrupted a Sunday mass in support of the Russian rock group Pussy Riot, the officials confirmed to NBC News.
Two days after the Pussy Riot verdict in Moscow, the copycats stormed into the mass at Cologne cathedral and shouted “Free Pussy Riot,” while throwing leaflets into the crowd.
After less than a minute, the activists were escorted out by church wardens.
Prosecutors told NBC News that under German law, the two men and one woman could be prosecuted for the disruption of free practice of religion.
If convicted, they could face up to three years in prison – compared to the two-year sentence given to their heroines in Russia.
If only the corrupt, nationalistic German church wasn’t in bed with Angela Merkel! :::snark:::
