The End of the World? Russian Orthodox Church By Richard Miller (London)
The day the world ends, if it is not the Second Coming by Our Lord, but by the hand of man, will be, to put it mildly, a very bad day. Yet, that is one of the ramifications of the attempt to destroy Russia, according to the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill. “We pray to the Lord so that he enlightens those madmen and helps them understand that any desire to destroy Russia will mean the end of the world,” said Patriarch Kirill. The Patriarch is hardly a minority voice, and unquestionably is capturing a sentiment that many Russians likely have. Being tough, outside of the usual woke found everywhere now, the Russians are not afraid of death, and Putin has often said that the Russians will go to heaven, while those “madnen,” spoken of by Patriarch Kirill, will perish.
It is hard to believe that there is not any offer of a compromise on the table, that the idea of peace does not get off the ground. There are no marches for peace, certainly not by the Left who want this war. No doubt they see Russia as a conservative force that stands against their woke views. That is not to say that there are not solid points against Russia, but sliding into World War III which will go nuclear, must be resisted in the name of humanity and decency.
“The head of the Russian Orthodox Church has warned that any attempt to “destroy Russia” by “madmen” trying to impose their values will lead to “the end of the world.”
The comments were made by Patriarch Kirill after a religious service marking the Orthodox Christian holiday of Epiphany.
According to Patriarch Kirill, “madmen” are stupid enough to believe that Russia, which “has powerful weapons and is populated by extremely strong people,” can be defeated despite the fact that it has “never given in to an enemy and had always emerged victorious.”
The church leader also decried how such “madmen” were trying to “impose on them certain values that cannot even be called values, so that they would be like everyone else and obey those who have the power to control most of the world.”
“We pray to the Lord so that he enlightens those madmen and helps them understand that any desire to destroy Russia will mean the end of the world,” said Patriarch Kirill.
Former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev made similar remarks when he asserted that Russia had “never lost a major conflict on which their fate depended” and that the result of defeat in a conventional war would be the triggering of nuclear war.
Meanwhile, in a potentially massive new escalation, the New York Times reported that the United States is considering working with Ukraine to attack Crimea, emboldened by the belief that “fears that the Kremlin would retaliate using a tactical nuclear weapon have dimmed.”
“Biden’s neocon handlers are essentially taunting Russia to use nukes against Ukraine,” comments Chris Menahan.
In another Orwellian speech, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told Davos globalists that military escalation is the only way to bring about the end of the war, remarking, “Weapons are the way to peace.”
Other world leaders are insisting that they are fully prepared to wage perpetual war in support of Ukraine.”
