“First time in history family morality of Muslims exceeds morality of baptized people (I can’t call them Christians), especially in questions of family life,” the priest said in his interview with Rossiya-1 TV.

According to him, all Muslims are virgins, and “in 1945 all our girls were also virgins, but then it was destroyed by variety art, television, so called literature.”

“If our women observe the seventh commandment “not to commit adultery,” then a line of 20 men will stand to every Russian woman and she will choose her future husband out of them,” Father Dimitry is convinced.

As he noted, today such “monstrous forms as civil marriage” are practiced, when a man uses a woman and then changes her for a fresh one and women agree to it.”

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 - Pravmir.ru, Neinvalid.ru, Matrony.ru and Pravmir.com. 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.
