Russia represents the best hope for Europe’s future, according to a prominent official of the Russian Orthodox Church.
“Russia has no future without conscience, morals and normal human relations and without faith,” Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin told a Russian television audience. He said that Russia’s abiding religious faith is the reason why the country represents “the best future” for Europe.
Other European countries, and the US, have lost their moral bearings because they have embraced secularism, the Russian cleric said. “The West is now that same godless system which has collapsed as Communism, it has collapsed as Nazism, and it will collapse as capitalism.” (Source)
Capitalism (the Godless kind) is just the other side of the Socialist coin.
