MOSCOW, December 20. /ITAR-TASS/. The Church’s political neutrality does not mean that the clergy and the laity can be indifferent to immoral ideologies, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia said.
“The ideology, which denies the borders between good and evil, sets rights above obligations and personal wishes above public duty. Such ideology equalizes children and aborts, sexual deviations and a marriage. This is a poison for human beings,” Patriarch Kirill said.
Thus, the Church “can’t keep silent to support the disastrous position of any politician. We should remain faithful to our views, including to the assessment of certain political figures’ activity”, he said.
“Today we’re facing such public challenges as alcoholism, drug dependency, aborts that lead to the decline in population and people able to work,” the patriarch said.
