Russia ... will still give the world its recipe for organizing society
I do not rule out that Russia, with its powerful desire for justice, will yet give the world its recipe for building a society in which the main thing will not be money, not private economic interests, and not the selfish aspirations of the human person.

I'm not afraid to express myself, maybe harshly, but from my point of view as an Orthodox priest, Father Vsevolod Chaplin's statements offend an Orthodox Christian a hundred times more than the Pussy Riot action. And it happens systematically! "Pussy Riot" jumped out once and disappeared, and Father Vsevolod Chaplin constantly appears, and any of his performances makes me blush for our Russian Orthodox Church.
Apparently, the position of Father Vsevolod Chaplin leads our society to the conviction that his statements are the voice of the entire Russian Orthodox Church, which in reality is not.
It's hard to say why this is happening. But Father Vsevolod Chaplin also periodically and even very often expresses his mind-blowing judgments because he has long been cut off from real life. His whole life was spent in the synodal departments, there was no real experience — parish pastoral. He had no experience of teaching in theological schools, gymnasiums, he was a functionary all his life.
