A Russian Sect Honors Putin as a Saint Paul
Haggard women hike up a hill near the Volga, saying they're following "the Law of Love." The law brings them to a three-story building made of white brick, with golden turrets and a battered gate. They call it the "Chapel of Russia's Resurrection." At the gate they exchange dusty boots for green plastic sandals before spreading out prayer rugs made of foam and pray to their patron saint: Vladimir Putin, Russia's prime minister and soon-to-be president (again). They believe he's a reincarnation of St. Paul.

The followers of this Russian Orthodox sect live in the village of Bolshaya Elnya, near Nizhny Novgorod, a metropolis 400 kilometers (about 250 miles) east of Moscow. Their leader is called "Mother Fotina," a 62-year-old matron who considers herself the reincarnation of Joan of Arc. "I proclaim what God has revealed to me," she says. Just as Saul persecuted Christians before his conversion to St. ...

That is interesting information PLII, thanks for sharing, however neither that particular --work-- makes her Christian, as indeed nor any work would. It would be good for more people to ask, What's So Wrong With The Eastern Orthodox Church?

"pray to their patron saint: Vladimir Putin, Russia's prime minister and soon-to-be president (again). They believe he's a reincarnation of St. Paul.
The followers of this Russian Orthodox sect"

I wonder when Bene the NAZI will beatify him and get the Roman Catholic troops to start praying to Putin?

After all he must be just as effective as the finger of some ancient dead body relic?

"Catholic theologians argued for the importance of relics as signs of religious faith, reaffirming their role as illustrations of the continual presence of saints within the Church. Cults of relics regained a prominent role in counter-reformation religiosity. While earlier relics were associated with Christ, the Virgin, and the apostles, the Catholic reformers confirmed worship of existing relics and encouraged veneration of parts of the saintly body: arms, hearts, tongues, throats, hands, and blood of saints were prominently exhibited on altars. Pope Sixtus V responded to accusations about the worship of false relics when he gave juridical form to the authentication of sainthood and of relics in 1588. This preserved the doctrinal basis of relics in Catholicism..." (D.A.Brownstein)

Yup, The Roman Catholics find God insignificant enough that they worship bits of dead sinners instead.

Why would anyone even write an article about these heretics? Is there not a cult honoring Obama as their savior?

Instead, why not much more press about this?

"Parliament passed and President Dmitri Medvedev signed several restrictions on abortion into law to combat a falling birthrate and plunging population. The restrictions include requiring abortion providers to devote 10% of advertising costs to describing the dangers of abortion to a woman's health and make it illegal to describe abortion as a safe medical procedure. Medvedev's wife Svetlana Medvedeva has taken up the pro-life cause in Russia in a weeklong national campaign against abortion called "Give Me Life!" and a "Day of Family, Love and Faithfulness" by her Foundation for Social and Cultural Initiatives in conjunction with the Russian Orthodox Church."
-Abortion in Russia

Why not discuss something positive such as the Prime Minister of Russia's wife, Mrs. Medvedeva, who has taken up the pro-life cause in Russia?

Would that a Western First Lady take up the pro-life cause.
