Penza, December 23, Interfax – Head of the Patriarchal Commission on family matters, protection of motherhood and childhood Archpriest Dimitry Smirnov urges Russian women to observe commandment “not to commit adultery.”

“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.”
