Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill calls military operation a metaphysical battle

His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia on Sunday at the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow labelled the Russian military operation in Ukraine as a battle against evil.

In his sermon on the Orthodox Forgiveness Sunday which marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent in the eastern churches, he lamented that for eight years the Kiev regime attempted to destroy what was good in the Donbass region. The region he claims, rejected the worldly values of those who claim “world power.”

“Today there is such a test for the loyalty of this government, a kind of pass to that “happy” world, the world of excess consumption, the world of visible “freedom”. Do you know what this test is? The test is very simple and at the same time terrible – this is a gay parade. The demands on many to hold a gay parade are a test of loyalty to that very powerful world; and we know that if people or countries reject these demands, then they do not enter into that world, they become strangers to it.” He said

The Patriarch of Moscow condemned the materialism and the promotion of gay parades around the world as manifestation of evil. To hold a gay parade was acceptance and if any country bans gay parades they are not admitted into this “happy world.” God’s word in the Old and New Testament refers to all these marches of dignity as sin. He stressed that God does not condemn the sinner rather the sin.

“If humanity recognizes that sin is not a violation of God’s law, if humanity agrees that sin is one of the options for human behavior, then human civilization will end there.” he added.

“Everything that I say has not just some theoretical meaning and not only a spiritual meaning. Around this topic today there is a real war. Who is attacking Ukraine today, where the suppression and extermination of people in the Donbass has been going on for eight years; eight years of suffering and the whole world is silent – what does that mean?”

He told the congregation that he prays that by Easter there will be joy. “Because what joy will there be if some are in the world, while others are in the power of evil and in the sorrow of internecine warfare?”

On February 24 President Vladimir Putin ordered a special military operation in Ukraine after the Donbass republics of Lushank and Donestk appealed for military assistance.
