Well, there were rumors that Patriarch Kirill was a snitch for the KGB.

Faith does not run deep in Russia. I talked to a priest a few months ago who is a missionary there. The communists destroyed any semblance of Christianity through persectuions & executions that lasted for over 60 years.

As a result, divorce rates are through the roof & the average Russian woman has upwards of 25 abortions in her life.

Putin is FOS. There’s more to this than meets the eye....smells like propoganda for a state-controlled church.

I find it hard to take Putin and faith in the same sentence. This must be so that “the church” can dictate Russian policy. It could get interesting.
