Skip to comments.Who’s ‘godless’ now? Russia says it’s U.S.

At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a godless nation.
In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of traditional values against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into chaotic darkness.
Mr. Putins views of the West were echoed this month by Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church, who accused Western countries of engaging in the spiritual disarmament of their people
The general political direction of the [Western political] elite bears, without doubt, an anti-Christian and anti-religious character, the patriarch said
Other figures within the Orthodox Church have gone further in criticizing the West. Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, a church spokesman, suggested that the modern-day West is no better for a Christian believer than the Soviet Union.
The separation of the secular and the religious is a fatal mistake by the West, the Rev. Chaplin said. It is a monstrous phenomenon that has occurred only in Western civilization and will kill the West, both politically and morally.

Promoting Homosexuality and Abortion both here and Abroad and vilifying traditional family values are signs of extreme Godlessness.
The West has replaced dependency on God with dependency on government.
56,000,000 reported surgical abortions, hundreds of millions unreported chemical abortions (read up on the pill, CDC has the data)
That is a lot more than hitler accomplished while the Germans sat around smelling the destruction
Not just a sign
It is extreme Godlessness
What is our excuse for not stopping it? We are a free country. Well, as free as we are willing to be.
(Unless you allow them to count Ωbamα as a god...)
I largely agree. USA has become godless which is directly related to lawlessness. The very existance of YHWH defines _supreme_ rules, instrutions on how to live; disregarded by USA and the western church. The very existance of USA defines _supreme_ rules, laws on how to live; disregarded by USG. You cannot separate the two supremes.
Even some of our Reverends are Godless. Consider Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson promoting abortion and homosexuality.
“Why has our press not realized this?”
You should include the sarcasm tag there. Some people will think you were asking a question.
