They try to deprive Russia of spiritual weapon, which is more powerful than nuclear one – Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin

Moscow, October 9, Interfax – Loss of spiritual weapon is the most terrific thing for Russia, head of the Synodal Department for Church and Society Relations Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin believes.

“They try to deprive Russia of its spiritual weapon, which, I believe, is more powerful than nuclear one,” Father Vsevolod said on air his programVechnost i Vremya (The Eternity and Time) at the Spas TV-channel.

According to him, notions of good and evil are leveled down with the term “tolerance,” moreover it is packed with such an opinion that “tolerance is refusing the monopoly on truth.”

The priest believes that spiritual weapons is a kind of standing in truth “when we claim that we know truth for all, not only for our people.”

Father Vsevolod also said that nuclear weapon is not a panacea.

“It is enough to buy a leading group of society – those who lack ideas and are ready to sell their ideals for a certain sum of money – in order to relieve from competitors the civilization that strives to be the only center,” he said and added that “it is rather simple to buy a part of our elite,” and in this case no weapon would help us.
