Orthodox divided

Russian Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill I took aim at clergy who opposed an April 22 mass prayer vigil at Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow, calling them "traitors in cassocks."

The cathedral is at the center of an ecclesiastical, media and social storm since a feminist group performed a "punk prayer" there against Russian President Vladimir Putin and church hierarchs.

Three of the group's young women are being detained.
