INTERESTING MESSAGE FROM VLADIMIR
A grave mistake would be for us to think that we only have to rid our church of pedophile priests and "all will be well." Wrong! The clergy abuse crisis in the Church is but a "skin eruption" on a deeply diseased body which has been rotting at its roots for decades.
How strange is it that the leader of a former atheist nation appears to be the only world leader of consequence to publicly demand that we return to our Christian roots, and aims directly at the "loss of our reproductive function" as the greatest evidence of moral collapse?!
P.S. None of the major media appeared to carry this story (an address given in December 2016.) I cross checked it with a number of sources and then found this video of him actually saying this.
In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized. There, politics treats a family with many children as equal to a homosexual partnership (juridically).
The excesses and exaggerations of political correctness in these countries indeed leads to serious consideration for the legitimization of parties that promote the propaganda of pedophilia.
The people in many European states are actually ashamed of their religious affiliations and are indeed frightened to speak about them.
Christian holidays and celebrations are abolished or ‘neutrally’ renamed, as if one were ashamed of those Christian holidays. With this method one hides away the deeper moral values of these celebrations.
And these countries try to force this model onto other countries, globally. I am deeply convnced that this is a direct way to the degradation and primitivization of culture. This leads to deeper demographic and moral crisis in the West. What can be a better evidence for the moral crisis of a human society (in the West) than the loss of its reproductive function?
Today nearly all ‘developed’ Western countries cannot survive reproductively, not even with the help of migrants.
Without the moral values that are rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without rules and moral values which have formed and been developed over millennia, people will inevitably lose their human dignity.
And we think it is right and natural to defend and preserve these moral (Christian) values.
At the same time as this process at a national level in the West, we observe on an international level the attempts to create a unipolar, unified model of the world, to relativize and remove institutions of international right and national sovereignty.
In such a unified, unipolar world there is no place for sovereign states. Such a world needs merely vassals.
From a historical perspective, such a unipolar world would mean the surrender of one’s own identity and of God-created diversity.
