This is Paul's latest statement on the Moscow Patriarchate, which some of you may have seen.
In simple terms, this confirms a clear path of collaboration with former KGB agents who were part of the Soviet totalitarian regime, now passing itself off as a democratic (read: totalitarian) regime. Whereas the old ideology preached atheism and subdued the Orthodox Church by collaboration, now the very same atheists, who have learned to Cross themselves in public, encourage religion by open collaboration, as everything happily proclaims that a new system is in place.
When the old rulers become the new rulers with a new face, the new system is simply the old system with a new face. And this is not just in Russia, but in most of Eastern Europe. Anyone who sees this would be wise to avoid certain trips by airplane....
How can one but be astounded at the naivete of those who do not see what is so simple? The thinking, tactics, and vision of what is described below has the stamp of the old KGB (under new letters) all over it. + AC
