  1. I am amazed the russian priest blessed the russian soldiers. I have never seen American soldiers being bless by priest before.

    • It would not be considered politically correct kiddo.

      In the US we took religion out of daily life, at the same time Russia allowed it back.

      Haven’t you heard how we now have folks trying to force the removal of creches (Jesus in the manger displays) from being put up out in public during Christmas?

      We kinda have an active anti-religion faction in control in the US.

  2. If anyone is interest about knowing American soldiers go to http://www.NationalGuard.com Have a great day!

  3. Religion and the military actually go hand in hand. In the Late Middle Ages the Pope used to go to war wearing battle armor, conquering towns in the middle of Italy. Cool stuff.

  4. Seeing the priest blessing the russian soldiers was my favorite photograph. Someday I hope our country does the samething.

  5. I didn’t know the Russian military used Taurus Millennium series handguns. I would have thought they would be issued something like a Tokarev.

  6. I’m not a bible thumper in any way, and I know I still will get flamed on this. But true christianity has and will never have part with the political systems and much less war. In matter of fact; Jesus said his kingdom was part of this earth, and when they tried to make him king he refused. He also stated that his followers would not be part of this world and that the true mark of christians would be the love they all had between them. History has shown the apostosy of religion in the name of God and Jesus. From the crusades to the active role of the Catholic Church in both World Wars, the Muslims beliveing that they have to kill in God, and the clear example in the above pictures, no wonder the Book of Revelation compares religion as a Harlot. I don’t blame atheist and agnostics. These supposibly religion men do nothing religious. My two cent.s

      • Where in RUSSIA? The Orthodox Church has been part of their culture a long time before as it is again. Maybe some feel that Protestant groups like the Mormons, Jehova Witnesses, Southern Baptists, etc… are intruding and trying to walk all over their culture. Maybe they believe those religous groups should stay home in American where most of them started and leave Russia and Russians the Hell alone. Just an idea.

        • I wish Jehovah Witnesses would leave me the hell alone, they come to my neighborhood at least twice a year. I hide and make the dog bark at them. They don’t like dogs. Russia, get a dog.

    • Hey Bible-Boy, leave the Harlots out of it!

      Why you monotheistic types always have to be putting women down and killing each other over who’s right?

  7. My priest packs a Smith and Wesson snub nose Bulldog, when asked what kind of ammo he likes he states that a 150 gr. cut wad round is best as it leaves a h3ll of a gaping exit wound, and puts his man down permanently. “One hit from this my son, and he’s explaining himself to Jesus”, he says as he pulls it out from under his robes.

    • Right… so the Russian military kills thousands of Muslims in Chechnya and installs a tinpot dictator, and that gets blessed by the Orthodox Church – but the ‘Mohammedans’ are animals?

      Lenin had the right idea: destroy the social roots of religion i.e. the church hierarchy, and religion would wither. Too bad real socialism never took root in the USSR. It looks like the priests are back in power.

  8. One of the better things that the Soviet Union did was suppress religion. It’s really a shame to see that being reversed. It doesn’t take much intelligence to realize how silly the concepts upheld by all religions are, especially if you look at the history of religions over the last five millennia. If you are religious, you are a fool, and if you are a Christian and you think Christianity should have a place in ANY military, then it’s pretty obvious you are a Christian in name only and don’t understand the concept…

    • They didn’t so much suppress it as present the state & leaders as a religion and suppress all of the other religions. If they get rid of even the ones disguised in other ways, then things will be better.
