Putin likes to style himself religious … do not laugh. It is true. Just look at how he handled Pussy Riot. It is telling that Putin handled some young girls roughly for singing in an Orthodox church. He appeared with the Pope in Rome. But he does nothing when his thug-henchmen in Ukraine defile bodies of the dead???
So I am calling on the Eastern Orthodox patriarchs/holy-men to denounce Putin and demand the bodies be accorded respect and dignity and that those abusing the corpses be handled rougher than the young girls who sing in churches.
So here are the men I calling out and waiting for action:
Patriarch Kirill I - (Patriarch of Moscow)
I would beseech other Patriarchs of other areas of the Orthodox church to also denounce Putin. I also beseech my own spiritual leader Pope Francis (@Pontifex, #Pontifex) to demand respect and dignity for the MH17 dead and justice for Malay.
Does Putin not know that Muslim’s need their dead to be accorded a swift dignity? Or does Putin not care about the Muslim dead? Putin deserves the restive Caucasus and I’ll never support him in his fight of terrorists again because he does not treat the dead with dignity and obviously he does not treat women with dignity either. Why does Pussy Riot get the strong arm and Russian Rebel Thugs who defile the dead get no attention? I think we all know the answer.
Surely Putin is man enough to deal with these thugs abusing dead. He was such a big man with Pussy Riot. Cannot the Russian Prime Minister deal with these Russian Rebels or is he only capable of roughing up young women?
Those who condone this level of disrespect for the dead deserve to be ignored by God and doomed to hell — they have no soul! Patriarchs and the Pope should not be silent about this tragedy!
