Putin urges Russians to return to values of Christianity

Vladimir Putin called on Russians to strengthen a new national identity based on conservative and traditional values such as the Orthodox church on Thursday, warning that the west was facing a moral crisis.

“Sovereignty, independence, the integrity of Russia – those are red lines that no one is allowed to cross,” the Russian president warned.

*Mr Putin said Russia should avoid the example of European countries that were “going away from their roots”, by legalising gay marriage and excessive “political correctness”.

“A policy is being conducted of putting on the same level multi-child families and single-sex partnerships, belief in God and belief in Satan. The excesses of political correctness are leading to the point where people are talking seriously about registering parties whose goal is legalising the propaganda of paedophilia,” Mr Putin claimed.

“People in many European countries are ashamed, and are afraid of talking about their religious convictions. [Religious] holidays are being taken away or called something else, shamefully hiding the essence of the holiday,” the Russian president added.

“We need to respect the rights of minorities to be different, but the rights of the majority should not be in question,” he said.


LOL!! I guess he believes jailing homosexuals and dragging them off the street fits that goal.

As far as I’m aware the recent law passed in Russia, in relation to homosexuality,was to ban homosexual propaganda, particularly aimed at school kids - which I believe Pope Francis recently stated that it was ‘gay lobbying’ that was the problem.

I see Putin as making the hard choices in the right direction.

This is something that is no longer politically correct for a politician to say anywhere in the ‘free’ world.

Putins method might be strict but I think in the end what he is doing is better than the USA. Homosexual behavior is sinful and yet we are to dicourage it without hating the person. This is something that is hard to do

“…people are talking seriously about registering parties whose goal is legalising the propaganda of paedophilia…”

Which people are talking “seriously” about this?
Which parties?

Something sounds very wrong about the way Putin has been talking…as if…he is not well or something. He worries me. I hate to say it or make this comparison, but he’s actually starting to remind me of that leader/politician in Germany from the Forties…


I agree.:thumbsup:


Putin is doing a damn fine job at appearing more Christian than the President. I don’t believe it for a minute; the man was KGB for goodness sake. But Obama had better get on his bike to keep up.

What Putin was and what Putin is are two entirely different things. When the Holy Spirit works on the heart and soul of a person the angels rejoice, as do I.

Since Fatima many prayers have been offered for Russia, I believe we are seeing the fruits of our prayers.

Thanks be to God.

Would that German leader from the '40s be Kanzler Konrad Adenauer, who oversaw de-Nazification, re-Christianization, economic revival, and a peaceful foreign policy, as Putin is doing at the moment? :slight_smile:

Mr. Putin and his remarks are quite a mystery! Hmmmmmm.

Putin impresses me more and more everyday!

Here is some articles for you. Truly Disgusting.

In case you don’t bother to read, here is a quote from a German Ministry of Family Affairs Publication that is mandatory elementary reading in 9 regions of Germany.

"“Fathers do not devote enough attention to the clitoris and vagina of their daughters. Their caresses too seldom pertain to these regions, while this is the only way the girls can develop a sense of pride in their sex,” reads the booklet regarding 1-3 year olds. The authors rationalize, “The child touches all parts of their father’s body, sometimes arousing him. The father should do the same.”

Why does Fatima come to mind when I read stuff like this…




Incredible! :thumbsup:
