Youth church group creates "Kill Pussy Riot" game -

While most church youth groups are into making pictures of Jesus out of macaroni and going to Christian rock festivals, one Russian Orthodox group has made a game out of killing Pussy Riot.

The all girl punk band were arrested when they staged a protest in the Saviour Cathedral and sang a song calling for the Virgin Mary to rid Russia of Vladimir Putin.

Tsar Putin was so disgusted that someone should protest, and in a church, that he instructed prosecutors to throw the book at the band. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 23, Maria Alyokhina, 25, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30, were sentenced to two years in prison

That was not enough for one Russian Orthodox youth group which unveiled a video game that gives players a chance to "kill" Pussy Riot.

Never mind forgiving the band members, along the lines of Christianity, it appears the group prefers the idea they be murdered in effigy.

You have to kill the women with a cross before they get to the church to make their protest.

Players use a mouse to move a cross over the screen and zap cartoon representations of the women from Pussy Riot, each with a balaclava like those worn by the band members in their protest as they try to enter a white church.

If a guitar-wielding band member gets to the church a little red devil dances across the screen.

Maria Voskresenskaya, who drew the cartoon figures for the game, suggested the members of Pussy Riot had opened themselves up to such treatment through their actions.

The 24 year old told Reuters that while the Russian church had problems, it did not justify the actions of those girls.

She said it took two weeks to create the came so we are not talking about Duke Nukem Forever here - most probably a flash game. It was on display at a festival in central Moscow.
