Anti-Christian revolution sweeps through Europe – Russian MP

admin | 18 January 2014

Moscow, November 15, Interfax – State Duma Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Alexei Pushkov has said he is seriously troubled by the way Christianity is treated in Europe today.

“Christians are being persecuted from the UK to Norway. People are being fired for wearing a crucifix. One can be “overtly gay”, but not a Christian,” Pushkov said on his Twitter page.

Europe’s “tolerance is gradually turning into a moral dictatorship,” he said.

“An anti-Christian revolution is sweeping through Europe. There is nothing that they can teach us,” he said.

Pushkov offered his comments in response to reports that popular Norwegian TV presenter Sir Kristin Saellmann was dismissed from her job for appearing on air wearing a crucifix.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
