President Vladimir Putin has encouraged Russians to show their patriotic fervour by praying to the Orthodox Church.
According to the Daily Telegraph of London, "Vladimir Putin praised the Russian Orthodox Church for creating a “spirit of patriotism” among young people on Sunday as he joined its leader for an Easter service. Mr Putin, Russia’s president, attended overnight prayers at the Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Moscow alongside Dmitry Medvedev, the prime minister, and the latter’s wife, Svetlana."
A spiritual awakening has spread throughout Russia as the nation sees itself as the last basion of hope to fight against the Culture War of the Left.
As reported by the Telegraph, "Patriarch Kirill exchanged kisses with Mr Putin as he presented him with a gift of painted eggs. Millions of Orthodox believers around the world are celebrating Easter according to the old Julian calendar on Sunday, as opposed to the Gregorian one used by Protestants and Catholics who marked it last weekend."
A majority of Russians stand in opposition to Gay Marriage.
