Hypocrisy over desecration acts

WHAT a difference between the reaction to the backpackers who desecrated the holy mountain on Borneo and to the punk group Pussy Riot who committed offensive acts in the Cathedral Of Christ the Saviour in Moscow (News, June 15).

It's widely accepted that the backpackers did wrong, while Pussy Riot were feted in the West for their freedom of expression.

What a difference a country makes.
