I’m reading that Our Lady of Fatima asked for the consecration of the Russian government.
Has Russia’s government become a Catholic government because of the miracles of Fatima?
Putin also added that Russia will defend Christian values and morality. According to Putin, Russian government considers it only natural and right to defend traditional Christian and moral values.
"We need to respect the rights of all minority groups, but we also must respect the rights of the majority population. These rights should not be questioned “, said Putin. “Without the values embedded in Christianity and other religions and without the evolution of moral standards, people will inevitably lose their human dignity.”
“Events that take place in the world represent one more serious challenge to the Russian identity. There are foreign policy and moral aspects to this. We have been able to see many Euro-Atlantic countries effectively embark on a path of renouncing their roots, including Christian values, which underlie Western civilization,” Putin said.
“That involves the negation of moral principles and any traditional identity - national, cultural, religious, or even sexual,” he said.
“Policies are pursued that put large families and same-sex partnerships in the same category, belief in God and belief in Satan. Excesses of political correctness reach the point where there are serious discussions on the registration of parties that have propaganda of pedophilia as their objective. People in many European countries are ashamed and afraid of speaking about their religion, holidays are abolished or given other names, names that shyly conceal the nature of those holidays, and aggressive attempts are made to force this model on the rest of the world,” Putin said.
