Postchristian

or lose the salt of his power?Bishop Sergey RyakhovskyThe news that the Lutherans of Denmark offer (or suggest) to abandon certain concepts of traditional Christianity, unfortunately, does not look anything special. Actually when people who consider themselves Christians, are seriously discussing the possibility not only of same-sex marriage and ordination of homosexuals, is it any wonder the proposal for revision of the biblical view of man's destiny in eternity? This all links in the same chain, even if the authors of these concepts never communicated with each other.We are witnessing a deep crisis in Christianity. The crisis involves not only the individual denominations. His symptoms equally noticeable in all the Christian Churches, although they manifest themselves differently. Because this crisis is not linked with the situation in a particular country or denomination, and the processes that occur in the world. With the changes that occur in people's lives, their attitudes and worldview. Читать полностью -->

Lost in translation

Leonid Radzikhovsky:Following the military victory and political, diplomatic, Victoria. Russia triumphantly won a small victorious war in Georgia - Russia won quite convincingly little diplomatic war in Europe.Europe didn't go to "disproportionate use of the words" EU - adopted a very "chewed-up" the resolution of any sanctions, no question, and in the European Parliament even made the valuable discovery that the serious fighting is still first began Saakashvili.So, the winners are not judged.And why? Usually the winners might destroy themselves: escalation victories sooner or later always leads to defeat.Therefore, the main political problem facing Russia is to be able to stop, if you will, by itself to grab with the hands feet. However, a special comic that Russia actually, I think, anywhere, in any dangerous direction and does not want to go, so even slow you down, in fact, not necessary.The only problem is that in Europe we don't believe - including, do not believe that we have no aggressive intentions. We don't believe Europe does not believe that they have similar intentions.Just mutual misunderstanding. However, this is quite sufficient (and main reason) all conflicts, up to the wars, inclusive.What could Russia do - society, politicians, top managers - from the behavior of Europe?The FACT is that Europe did not go to "multiply bad", did not aggravate the conflict. Tried to save face - and, for the rest, stepped away from the Redline.Defeated a compromiseEurope lost not out of fear - or rather not so much from fear. Читать полностью -->

What will change in the ROC MP with the advent of the new Patriarch?

Alexander Musin,doctor of historical Sciences, candidate of theologyCyril predictably became Patriarch. And everything that happened on the two cathedrals of the ROC (the local) was predictable. Two days before the bishops 'Council of the City 812" predicted that the patriarchs will be recommended by three Metropolitan of Smolensk Kirill, Kliment of Kaluga and Belarus Filaret. And so it happened.It would seem that here, at the Council of bishops, Cyril won a convincing victory: he was voted 97 bishops, while for the second 32, and third 16. However, it is not so: it is easy to calculate that Cyril scored less than half of voters - the majority of bishops (101 out of 198) didn't vote for him. The vote of the local Council was more convincing, despite the confusion in the figures, questioning the ability of the Cathedral to be (the whole world live first heard that members of the Cathedral 701 people, then that's the 702, and finally - 700).

Spies we fell out of love

Obama is insurance against the return of security forces to power in Russia.Pavel ChikovThe security forces seem to come out of the global political fashion. The U.S. Senate recently approved on the post of CIA Director Leon Panetta, who headed the office of the White house staff under bill Clinton, but not having any experience in intelligence.It certainly is a landmark destination. A landmark for our country with obviously inflated "power" part of the Russian political elite. Butthe incredible invasion of immigrants from the security services in government and oculoplasty patterns in the early 2000-ies (according to some estimates, they take up to 75% of all key positions) was associated not only and maybe not so much with the coming to power of the former KGB Colonel Vladimir Putin.Were for this and the global preconditions: the administration of George W. Bush with Vice President gray cardinal and military industrialist Dick Cheney, the events of 11 September 2001, the beginning of the international campaign against terrorism, overt militaristic rhetoric on the international arena, a fantastic military budget of America.
