Andrey Melnikov, the editor of NG-Religii, reports on a conference this week at the Russian Cultural Center in Budapest devoted to the growth of conservative national consciousness in the members of the European Union and the rest of the world.
The meeting, which attracted representatives from 24 different countries, is formally the 25th Conference of the International Foundation for the Unity of Orthodox Peoples, a group that, in Melnikovs words, has positioned itself as an international conservative organization which criticizes globalization from the perspective of fundamentalist Christianity.
The meeting is taking place in Budapest, the Moscow journalist says, because Hungary today is much more friendly toward Russia, where the foundation has its headquarters. It is important because it is the first after the rupture of eucharistic communion of the Moscow and Constantinople patriarchates.
Speakers at the meeting have praised FIDESZ and Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Urban for their nationalist and pro-Moscow stances. But the Hungarian leaders are not the only ones the meeting has been expressing support for. Valery Alekseyev, the head of the foundation that sponsored the meeting, praised US President Donald Trump.
Alekseyev said that the American leader not only has adopted a course based on the insistence of national interests and religious traditionalism as the bases of social life in his country but is also prepared to actively promote the same values in Europe so that the Old World will turn from its left-liberal trend toward the Judeo-Christian basis of Western civilization.
The Moscow official singled out for particular praise Steve Bannon, whom he described as an advisor of the president, even though Bannon has resigned from his White House job. Thanks to Trump and Bannon, Alekseyev continued, the entire Western world will be captured by the conservative project.
If western Europe returns to traditionalism, the Moscow foundation boss said, then Russia which has been at odds with left-liberal Europe will be able once again to find a place in the new conservative European context.
A record 70 percent of Russians approve of Soviet leader Josef Stalins role in Russian history , LOL bye EU
When Western Europe has succeeded in committing suicide, Eastern Europe and the USA will continue to soar into ascendancy!
100% of Orthodox Christians do not approve of Soviet leader Josef Stalins role in Russian history.
The present globalist, financier, multi-culti, post-modern governance of the West unfortunately doesn’t offer much of an alternative.
I’ll trade Turkey for Russia in a heartbeat.
“and the USA”
On what, the spawn of Mexico?
The US will be majority Mestizo within two generations at current rates. You think that “nation” will be a challenge to Russia and China?
It is to laugh.
If the figure 42.5% of Russians identify as Orthodox is correct, then I think there is a problem of whose definition is official.
I’d trade New England, New York, and California for Russia in a heartbeat—and throw in Illinois too.
There are some good people in those states, but the Republic is careening out of control.
Future Conservative European Union?
That’s rich! Funniest thing I’ve read all day.
That Putin, what a card!
Its true. And Eastern Europe, including Russia, is leading the way.
From the review:
Everywhere we look, it appears that the secular left celebrates another victory lap. From politics to the media, from education to the arts, liberals seem to be completely in control. It’s no wonder, then, that so many prominent conservative traditionalists are hopelessly pessimistic about the future of Western Civilization.
But what if this is just one side of the equation? What if it turns out that brewing beneath the surface, a renewed Christian age is rising?
In this thought-provoking book, Dr. Steve Turley argues that there is in fact two revolutions concurrently taking place: a demographic revolution and a political revolution, both of which suggest a significant conservative Christian resurgence.
HERES A PREVIEW OF WHAT YOULL LEARN
Why scholars believe that the fertility discrepancy between conservative Christians and secularists means a far more conservative future
How Europe is already reversing its demographic decline with a nationalist baby boom
How conservative Christianity is on the rise in the US
Why scholars believe there is a resurgence of Christianity in Europe
How these demographic and religious trends are already reshaping much of European society
And much, much more!
Drawing from scholarly studies and current events, Dr. Turley’s study will inspire you to reject the naysayers predicting the twilight of the West, and instead embrace a hopeful vision of cultural renewal and the coming Christian majority.
Eastern Europe knows Russia and hates Russia.
“” “” Eastern Europe knows Russia and hates Russia.”” “”
You mean the first and second generation immigrants to the United States who better forget about Eastern Europe and start to care about issues which are American-related.
Let people who are still in Europe sort it out for themselves.
