Patriarch Kirill: Conflict in Ukraine is a Battle Against a Godless International Order Built on 'Gay Pride Parades'

Patriarch Kirill, the spiritual leader of the Russian Orthodox Church, said Sunday that the conflict in Donbas is a "metaphysical" battle against a godless international order that rewards governments which embrace sin and punishes those who embrace God's laws.

"For eight years there have been attempts to destroy what exists in the Donbas," Kirill said. "And in the Donbas there is rejection, a fundamental rejection of the so-called values that are offered today by those who claim world power."

"Today there is such a test for the loyalty of this government, a kind of pass to that "happy" world -- the world of excess consumption -- the world of visible 'freedom.' Do you know what this test is? The test is very simple and at the same time terrible -- this is a gay parade. The demands on many to hold a gay parade are a test of loyalty to that very powerful world, and we know that if people or countries reject these demands, then they do not enter into that world, they become strangers to it," he said.

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, a long-time ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said on Sunday that the conflict in Donbas is about "a fundamental rejection of the so-called values that are offered today by those who claim world power."

The "test" of which side you are on, said Kirill, is whether your country is willing to hold gay pride parades.

"In order to enter the club of those countries, it is necessary to hold a gay pride parade. Not to make a political statement, 'we are with you,' not to sign any agreements, but to hold a gay parade. And we know how people resist these demands and how this resistance is suppressed by force," Kirill said during a sermon in Moscow.

Kirill categorized the war as a struggle of "metaphysical significance," for humanity to follow God's laws.

"What is happening today in the sphere of international relations has not only political significance. We are talking about something different and much more important than politics. We are talking about human salvation," he said.

"If we see violations of [God's] law, we will never put up with those who destroy this law, blurring the line between holiness and sin, and even more so with those who promote sin as an example or as one of the models of human behavior," Kirill said.

"Around this topic today there is a real war," he said.

As we saw recently with the fall of the US puppet government in Afghanistan, the US occupiers put up murals of George Floyd and flew LGBT and BLM flags.

British MI6 chief Richard Moore said two weeks ago that the battle in Ukraine was a struggle for "LGBT+ rights."

"With the tragedy and destruction unfolding so distressingly in Ukraine, we should remember the values and hard won freedoms that distinguish us from Putin, none more than LGBT+ rights," Moore said.
