Skip to comments.The 'Russian Cross' Is Continuing To Reverse
Posted on 05/06/2014 7:01:08 PM PDT by MinorityRepublican
Russian demography isnt exactly known for being a meme generator, but one short-hand term for the countrys demographic problems has caught on in a serious way: the Russian cross.
This name doesnt have anything to do with religiosity or with Orthodox Christianitys famously unique way of rendering the crucifix, but with Russias sudden plunge into catastrophic population decline during the 1990′s. When you graphed the absolute number of births and deaths, they changed course so radically that they bore a striking resemblance to a cross.

Until Russians repent of their atheism and learn to love life, they will continue to decline.
Religious people view children as a gift from God to help secure the future. The godless liberal views them as an inconvenience, at best, or even a liability which put additional demands on their zero sum view of the world.
I think you're a bit behind the times. You seem not to have noticed that the Cathedral of Christ the Savior once again stands in Moscow, Russian monasteries are full, the churches no longer the province of old baboushkas but well-attended by young and old, peasant and oligarch alike, Russian schools include religious education, the Russian army has Christian chaplains once again, and for the past two years, the Orthodox Church has influenced legislation in the Duma one matters of morality, and the demographic decline has reversed.
It’s happening to America as well.
America needs to bring back businesses back to America, and start growing once again.
(I'm a terrible proof-reader under the best of circumstances, and the martini I'm drinking isn't helping.)
The next occurence of “and” and “the”, not the one they were between in the original post.
For every article you post something about businesses or jobs coming back to America. America doesn’t have a jobs problem, it has a moral problem. IMHO.
Well currently we are exporting American jobs very rapidly.
We have been exporting American jobs now for an entire generation.
America needs jobs. Sure I’m repeating myself, but nobody is looking out for America’s future.
Not the GOP. Not democrats. Maybe the Tea Party but I haven’t heard them yet.
America needs to stop selling out.
Keep jobs here.
That may be so, but that doesn’t mean their hearts are yet won.
A one or two year reversal does not mean that it is permanent. I’d like it to be, however.
Putin is a true thug, and no one knows when he will not be Russia’s leader.
But why would the absolute number of deaths suddenly skyrocket at the same time?
It looks like deaths increased from around 1.7 million to 2.3 million in about 4 years.
That's a 35% increase.
That just does not ring true.
Your words can be applied to Americans far more readily than to Russians.
How is he more of a thug than ObaMao and our mob parasite class who voted him in? Wasn’t Putin elected as well?
I don’t question that for a bit. This principle can be applied basically worldwide. It’s not an indication that I’m thinking badly of the Russians.
We seriously have to get into this KGB man and his take over since his Communist regime collapsed and the KGB takeover of much of the almost state church of Putin’s, and his oppression, and his amassing of 40 to 70 billion dollars somehow, his terrifying of his neighbors while building an empire?
Obama is what he is, but he took office in 2009, and will be leaving office in 2017.
This worship of Russia’s strong man, against us, is sick.
ObaMao may leave office in 2017, but his thug policies of his thug regime will be with us for many years after. Perhaps as long or longer than Putin's.
Pat Buchanan believes (as I do) that God is on Putin's side:
US Govt Russophobia:
The false flag sniper op at Maidan:
Arrest warrant for George Soros:
200 New Christian churches being built in an daround Moscow:
The Cathedral of Christ The Savior:
calls for world leaders to stop the slaughter/persecution of Christians :
The United States is still demographically a Christian nation but you'd never know it from observing our government. All you ever read about our government doing these days is supporting regimes which persecute Christians and Christianity, and then you ask whose side you think God might be on? You think God could ever be on the side of George Soros, Monsanto, and the Obunga state department?? For that matter do you think God would be on the side of "conservatives" who weren't bright enough to see through demoKKKrat/NWO/Soros/US_StateDept propaganda and BS??
All of that is aside from the fact that Putin almost singlehandedly stopped the idiot greentards and Malthusians from shutting down all of the world's economies in 04 with the Russian hacker attack on the East Anglia CU email database which gave rise to "Climategate" (www.climategate.com). Other than for that, all of the idiots comparing Putin with Hitler would likely be rubbing sticks together to make fire. The rulers of Russia have taken a hard look at the ongoing suicide of the West and determined that Russia is not going to participate. This may in fact be the biggest factor in the tidal wave of propaganda and disinformation which the West is subjected to regarding Russia and Vladimir Putin, and in the policies of our state department. The bankers who run the West hope to prevent the calamity which they are facing by bail-ins and austerity programs and that, combined with the Malthusian and greentard policies of our governments figure to produce a world of major grief for the West over the coming decades. Those people can ill afford the alternative example of a prosperous and happy version of reality in the BRIC nations for everybody on the planet to see on television and the internet.
