Spokesman denies Orthodox church is promoting persecution of punk band members who could face seven years in prison

A top official in the Russian Orthodox church said on Tuesday that the trial of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot had been willed by God, and called on Russia to do away with its secular state.

Three members of Pussy Riot stand accused of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred following a February performance in Russia’s main cathedral aimed at protesting against Vladimir Putin’s return to the presidency.

“It was a sin against God and it is God that is judging it,” Vsevolod Chaplin, a high-ranking priest who often acts as the church’s spokesman, said. “And all Christians should know this.”

The trial entered its second day on Tuesday, with the questioning of nine Orthodox Christians who said they were insulted when they saw the punk performance, entitled Virgin Mary, Chase Putin Out! Chaplin denied accusations that the church had promoted the persecution of the three Pussy Riot members – Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich – who face up to seven years in prison if found guilty. “The church does not put any pressure on the court,” he said.
