A Russian judge in Moscow has found three members of feminist punk band Pussy Riot guilty of hooliganism.

The judge said, and I could not make this up, that the three band members committed hooliganism driven by religious hatred and offending religious believers.

The three members were original arrested back in March following a guerrilla performance in Moscow’s main cathedral in February calling for the Virgin Mary to protect Russia against Vladimir Putin, Russia’s president.

The members of Pussy Riot currently face up to seven years in prison, yes SEVEN YEARS, even though no one was harmed, nothing was damaged, and not a single church service was interrupted by the appearance.

You can view video of the performance that started it all after the jump. We will update you later today once sentencing has been made public.
