Russian Communists Merge With Russian Orthodox Church
Moscow, Russia – Jesus Christ was the world’s first Communist, Tamara Lavrischeva announced cheerfully.
“Jesus said, ‘Don’t collect earthly wealth, you won’t take it with you after death,'” the 78-year-old pensioner and Orthodox Christian told Al Jazeera as she trudged through the snow-covered streets of central Moscow with thousands of other Communists during the November 7 rally that commemorated the almost-centennial anniversary of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution.
“It is a holy duty of Communists and the Orthodox Church to unite,” Zuyganov wrote in 2012 in his party’s first lengthy document on religion, because both institutions shared “common goals and enemies”.
