← Rise of religion in Russia

Odalrich's Avatar Jump to comment 21 by Odalrich

Power has always been more comfortable with religion on its side. When Napoleon became First Consul of the Republic, after his coup, he restored all the property of the Church confiscated by the Revolution and said that a people with religion was much easier to rule, and if France were a Jewish country, he would rebuild the temple of Solomon. It is obvious that Putin is on the way to become an autocrat and the Church has always supported the autocrats that favour its interests. This has happened throughout History, it's happening today and, unfortunately, it's going to happen for quite a while.
