Read the comments below by Vladimir Putin, who is constantly berated by Western glitterati (e.g., Madonna, Lady Gaga, Sir Elton John) for his stance on unnatural relations. The man speaks like a Christian, nay, like a Catholic (he is a self-professed Russian Orthodox Christian). Imagine an American politician in high office speaking in such a way.
On the other hand, some there are who think that the consecration of Russia requested by Our Lady of Fatima is not necessary, since Christianity (albeit in a schismatic version) is so openly accepted in this formerly atheistic and communist nation. My reply is twofold: 1) the Mother of God demanded it, therefore it ought to be done; and 2) the promised “conversion” of Russia was neither to schism, nor to non-communism, nor to any other thing than Catholic Unity under the Roman Pontiff.
One consolation in all this is that when Russia does convert to Catholicism, there will be an influx into the Church of men — real men! — who are not afraid to speak out openly as Christians, and fight like Christian warriors, as well as pray and fast like Russian Monks, worshiping according to a traditional Catholic liturgy which they have not seen fit to mutilate. That’s called a “net gain.”
“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.
“This is a direct path to degradation and primitiveness, to deep demographic and moral crises,” he said.
“What can be a better indication of a moral crisis in human society than its loss of the ability for self-reproduction?” Putin said.
