Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How is that you don't understand? PR could do the same protest in front of this Church, on the street (and still have consequences if they did not register and have permit to protest)but they cannot enter the Church and protest ( for that there is no way they can get permit be it Orthodox or any other Church in Russia or elsewhere ). That's one point.
As about freedom of speech. During the protest language is also of importance. Yes you can say: "Gays are people too" or you can say "Patriarch is politicly corrupted" but you should not use obscenity as PR did. Now just do not tell me that it is "artistic" way of protesting...
