@frawley the Russian Orthodox Church is merely an arm of the Russian police state. And ok, great the kiddos start their day with prayer. What do they pray for? Do they pray for their dear leader?

Abortion and our runaway debt came from the Left, which came from the errors of Russian communism (based on German Marxism).

@frawley the Russian Orthodox Church is merely an arm of the Russian police state. And ok, great the kiddos start their day with prayer. What do they pray for? Do they pray for their dear leader?

Abortion and our runaway debt came from the Left, which came from the errors of Russian communism (based on German Marxism).

Russia has the most nuclear weapons on the planet, and they consistently renege on their treaty promises. They also poison their enemies.

Free will is integral to Christianity. In Russia there is no freedom. Putin is a communist acting like a fascist who uses Christian religion to solidify his power.

And by the way, Mary, Mother of Our Lord, threw the first rock at Russia and made it clear: the country must be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. This has not been done.

Gee, when I was a child we prayed in school for our leader (The president) is that a bad thing?
If abortion and deficit spending are the fault of the left, how comes it does not seem to get resolved when the Republicans hold the House, Senate and Whitehouse?
"In Russia they have no freedom" Just how free are we? The Government takes half of what I earn, I need their permission to drive a car, …More

"In Russia they have no freedom" Just how free are we? The Government takes half of what I earn, I need their permission to drive a car, get married, start or operate a business, purchase a gun, build a shed in my back yard, educate my own children, or assemble for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
"Russia poisons their enemies" Don't we have an entire Corps in the US Army that specializes in CBRNE (Chemical Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Exposive) warfare both offensive and defensive?
I think the good guys with the white hats and the bad guys with the black hats model is a little too simplistic.

@Jmy1975> What ever ones personal take on Putin's presidency of Russia, it cannot be argued that he, and he alone, [perhaps with God's grace] 'pulled' his country out of the mess it was in, following the collapse of communism and the subsequent 'ineptitude presidency of Boris Yeltsin.

"His comments followed a nationwide vote on constitutional reforms that included an amendment enshrining the definition of marriage specifically as a union between a man and a woman."

Lets see, Our elected leaders are responsible for just shy of 70 million of our citizens killed via abortion since 1973 and have stolen 23+ trillion dollars from our children and grandchildren thru runaway deficit spending. Lets not throw too many rocks at Russia where by the way the children in public schools start their day with prayer.

@Jmy1975 Now, you are defending the flying of the rainbow flag? Now, your team is rainbow crue? And that's because Putin mocked the US for flying the thing? A contrast: Saint Thomas, he took anything that were true, no matter the origin; or Aristotle: "amicus Plato, sed magis amica veritas": Platon is my friend, but the truth is a better friend". Jesus Christ: if you love more your life or …More

I am not defending the rainbow flag at all. But I'm also not praising a killer and fascist like Putin.

Best to keep your mouth shut if you're ignorant.

@eticacasanova Putin, great Christian man that he is, amassed over 40 billion in wealth from killing enemies, jailing enemies, and outright stealing from people. He has never been legitimately elected, having been appointed to his post by Boris Yeltsin in 1999. He staged the Russian partment massacres to get the public to support his rule. And he has named new nuclear weapons in defiance of his …More
@eticacasanova Putin, great Christian man that he is, amassed over 40 billion in wealth from killing enemies, jailing enemies, and outright stealing from people. He has never been legitimately elected, having been appointed to his post by Boris Yeltsin in 1999. He staged the Russian partment massacres to get the public to support his rule. And he has named new nuclear weapons in defiance of his signed treaties "Satan I" and "Satan 2".

Again I get the Latin American love of all Things anti American. But the reality is that it's often based in ignorance.

So I don't love the rainbow flag, and I don't defend it. I will however, call things as they are. Putin is an evil man. He doesn't deserve your praise or any praise. And if you're really Catholic you should realize that until Russia is consecrated to Mary's Immaculate Heart they will always be a problem. Don't like that? Take it up with God.

OK, OK, your tactics is insult, saying I'm ignorant, even when you know you are no match to discuss with me, good: if I'm ignorant, you don't even have a brain, so don't call me ignorant, it diesn't serve your csuse. Secondly, the problem here is that you start insulting Putin for his mockery of the pride rainbow flag, no matter that all you say against hom has nothing to do with the matter at …More

Secondly, the problem here is that you start insulting Putin for his mockery of the pride rainbow flag, no matter that all you say against hom has nothing to do with the matter at gand. See, I am a Venezuelan, this guy is one of the main reponsibles for the destruction of my country, I have grievances against the man, I know him, better than you do. BUT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO HERE. So, as always, get in your place and behave, boy!!!!!!

@eticacasanova you said I supported the rainbow flag. That's an insult. You are a hypocrite.

Maybe we can mock Putin for having a police state with an average income of $11,000 dollars. Iran doesn't have gay marriage either. It isn't like Russia (still not consecrated to Mary) is some Christian utopia.
