Who’s ‘godless’ now? Russia says it’s U.S.

MOSCOW — At the height of the Cold War, it was common for American conservatives to label the officially atheist Soviet Union a “godless nation.”

More than two decades on, history has come full circle, as the Kremlin and its allies in the Russian Orthodox Church hurl the same allegation at the West.

“Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values,” Russian President Vladimir Putin said in a recent keynote speech. “Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”


In his state of the nation address in mid-December, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of “traditional values” against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.”

As part of this defense of “Christian values,” Russia has adopted a law banning “homosexual propaganda” and another that makes it a criminal offense to “insult” the religious sensibilities of believers.

The law on religious sensibilities was adopted in the wake of a protest in Moscow’s largest cathedral by a female punk rock group against the Orthodox Church’s support of Mr. Putin. Kremlin-run television said the group’s “demonic” protest was funded by “some Americans.”




I'M A DEPLORABLE KNUCKLEHEAD THAT SUPPORTS PRESIDENT TRUMP.  MAY GOD BLESS HIM AND KEEP HIM SAFE.

And if something do not change in the hearts and souls of Americans- will be worse and worse.  :(

… and not only is the notion of
"same-sex marriage" Godless,
it is also stupid, non-sensical
and illogical … we are living
in a looney-toone.

  I don't give a twit about gay adults, that's their life, their choose.
  What irritates the sh**tt out of me is the ole Gov promoting it, propagandizing, parades as if it is the inn thing. Family core values- divisions- all part of a bigger picture.
  Russia's population has a % of gays as does every other country, they just don't promote it, give em parades, news headlines, air time..
  Youngsters in puberty are being fed a ton of HS    Lord have mercy on the young generation..
, I am sorely disappointed our GOV promotes this.
            Mind mucking!
