the authentic religious meaning of Christmas is “a very dangerous tendency,” Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow said in an interview with a Russian television station. 

“This is a political action, a purposeful act to oust Christian values, including Christian holidays from the lives of people,” he added, according to an Interfax news agency report. 

“This is spiritual disarmament of the masses.” 

Referring to Western Europe, Patriarch Kirill said that “the general political tendency, the general direction of elites is undoubtedly anti-Christian and anti-religious.” 

“We have gone through an era of atheism and we want to shout for the whole world to hear: ‘People, stop, we know what kind of life it is.’”
