Pretty colors

The Russian Orthodox Church is annoyed that a guy in a dress won the Eurovision song contest. This strikes Russians as hilarious, because The Russian Orthodox Church features guys in dresses.

The drag queen’s performance and its enthusiastic reception was a sign of the world’s moral decline and part the aggressive assertion of Western cultural norms, according to Vladimir Legoyda.

The chairman of the church’s information department told Interfax news agency: ““The process of the legalisation of that to which the Bible refers to as nothing less than an abomination is already long not news in the contemporary world.”

Yup. It’s a hot mess. People going in for abomination everywhere you look, and nobody but priests in dresses to tell them no.

Can they dance in those things?

    Aw, aren’t they precious?? You just want to pinch their chubby cheeks, don’t you?

  2. Andrew B. says

    If the God thinks of drag as an “abomination,” then he sounds like a stupid fuck.

    Bearded person in snazzy dress abominates other bearded person in snazzy dress. News at 11.

    (To the priests’ credit, those are pretty sweet cloaks, no lie. I particularly like the raspberry-colored one on the big bloke second from right.)

    The guy in the middle looks like he’s just about to bust out into show tunes.

    I think I see Russia’s submission for next year – combining the best of the “Party For Everybody” grannies, with dress-wearing men. With even more impressive beards. 😛
    Now they just have to learn to dance.

    Ok, I’m sorry, but, they just look like a row of flashers holding the cloaks like that.

    This is definitely the first time I’ve seen anything associated with Eurovision described as “aggressive”.

    They also have some lovely jewelry. I covet these guys’ outfits, not least because I could make TWO skirts from any one of those robes.

    How, pray tell, would you describe Lordi?
