Russia influenced European politics as a “Protectress of Slavs” in 19 and 20th century.
Now she will influence European politics as a “Protectress of Christianity”
My guess.

K77, Russia was a "protectress" of her own interests, as any normal state is. With all due respect to Patriarch Kirill, the issue of crucifixes in schools is not a matter of European cultural heritage but of religion.

Arguing as he does, as well as others who think the same, that this is a "cultural" issue is rather naïve, and not very convincing.

The plain truth is: crucifixes or any other religious symbols have no business in public schools where the state and church are separate.

Don't forget, k77, that the MP is writing a letter to Berlusconi of all people about Christian and cultural European values! I mean it doesn't get much more pathetic and ridiculous than that! Berlusconi is a laughing stock of news media with his never-ending prostitute and marriage scandals.

This is like a Church prelate writing to Hugh Hefner on the evils of pornography! The MP made a complete idiot of himself with this uncalled for unOrthodox "activism."

I doubt that modern day Russia is terribly Christian — it is getting there no doubt, but not quite.

Oh, and of course, that statements should not detract from my gratitude to the Patriarch for his statements.
