MOSCOW, July 21 (RIA Novosti) Head of the Russian Orthodox Church warned Western governments on Sunday against legalization of same-sex marriages what he called a sign of approaching end of the world.
Patriarch Kirill said during a service at Moscows major cathedral that the recent initiatives in a range of countries to legalize same-sex marriages is a dangerous and apocalyptic symptom that should not spread over to Russia, according to Russian media reports.
While those who fight the laws imposed by the minority are subject to repressions, Kirill, who leads the Church known for its conservative views, was quoted as saying during his speech at Kazan Cathedral near Red Square on Sunday.
Russian authorities have been repeatedly criticized by human rights groups and Western officials over a recently passed law introducing punishment for the promotion of nontraditional sexual relationships among minors.
Hard to argue with his assessment.
Come Lord Jesus. Amen.
America races in the exact opposite direction.
Add up Echelon/Prism/IRS/DOJ all watching, harassing and fixing elections, Jimmy Carter saying the USA is no longer a functioning democracy, and you end up with a Beast System.
I was in the military from 67 to 87. Never in my wildest nightmares, did I ever think the Russians would be right, and the US wrong. My goodness, how things have changed.
Solzhenitsyn pretty much wrote all of the same things, he could see what was to befall the West....in a way, the end of the Cold War only hastened it, as it seems the West has lost its’ purpose.
The irony of that isn’t lost on my Dad either (he served about the same period, ~2 years less).
*yawn* people have been saying the apocalypse is coming soon since the beginning of religion. What’s different this time?
It’s not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.
He is on His way...
Israel has been revived. This is the difference.

Right! Just like "it can't happen here!"
Aye, sooner than yesterday and not as soon as tomorrow.
