“The main characteristic of the Internet is that its speed is very high, it means that every evil appears and spreads in it very fast. And to do evil, you don’t have to be very smart,” the hierarch said a Thursday press conference in Moscow.
However, the church official believes, that the Internet itself “isn’t personification of evil.”
“It’s just a technology of accumulating and conveying the information, the same as clay tablets, birch bark documents, papyrus, parchment, stone walls and other technologies of transferring information,” the hierarch said.
According to him, other factors are important when creating “something good, deep, talented.”
“To create such works, even considering modern technologies, much time and effort is needed as well as certain spiritual mood,” the metropolitan said.
