CHRISTIANITY OR CHAOS ?
An anonymous commenter at Constance Cumbey's blog has posted a link to this story from Interfax:
Moscow, December 29, Interfax – The Russian Orthodox Church predicts, in case the West finally refuses its Christian heritage, it will face “war of all against all.”
“When the West tries to expel, to erase every reminder of Christ from public space, it’s pathology of fighting against their own conscience, their own tradition. It won’t surprise me, if the West loses itself entirely in this fight,” Deputy Chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate Department for External Church Relations Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin said on Saturday in the Orthodox Encyclopedia TV program on TV Center....
The Church official noted that oppression of Christians is a very serious problem, while no one even mentioned it five years ago....
According to Fr. Vsevolod, Christians should struggle against it not by force, but by common prayer and civil action based on this prayer that is “stronger than everything.”
This is a conclusion that the study of secret societies has led me to as well. The only thing that stands between us and annihilation is the Christian faith--and for me personally, the Catholic faith.
