Russia's Patriarch Kirill urges 'holy war' on terror


The head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, has urged all countries to unite in what he called a holy war on terrorism.


What’s the Russian for “DEUS VULT!”?


Bog hochet (Бог хочет)


There is no such thing as “holy” war.

God save us from those who think otherwise.


I believe some one million Ukrainians have been driven from eastern Ukraine. Catholics and Tatar Muslims are being driven from Crimea. To my understanding, Patriarch Kirill has condemned neither.
