It's still Caution: Religion!

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

After a trial lasting 14 months, Yury Samodurov and Andrei Yerofeyev, the curators who have been charged with inciting religious hatred for staging the Forbidden Art exhibition at the Sakharov Center in Moscow in 2007, will find out today if they are going to jail.

Read Mikhail Ryklin's powerful piece about the persecution of everyone involved in the 2005 exhibition Caution: Religion!, by fanatical religious nationalists, which led, he says, to his wife's untimely death. We can only hope the judge refuses pleas to punish them in the name of Jesus.
