In the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) does not advise Russian women to marry Muslims, Jehovah’s witnesses, Communists and atheists. Those women who are unable to find a husband in Russia, head of the Patriarchal Commission for family Affairs, Archpriest Dimitrii (Smirnov) advised me to go to Africa, reports “Interfax”.
According to the priest, in Africa, home to many Christians and the Russian Orthodox Church benevolently configured to marriages with representatives of other Christian denominations. “If a person is a Christian, well, let’s say, Catholic or Lutheran. Well, at the very worst a Baptist, but no further. No seventh-day Adventist for this does not fit, although they will claim, like the Jehovah’s witnesses that they are Christians,” said FR.
To conclude marriages with infidels and atheists, according to the cleric, it is impossible. Such marriages, the Church cannot bless. “The Church — it consists of small house churches. How can you build a Church with a Muslim, a Jehovah’s witnesses, a Communist, an atheist? This is not a house Church, it will be-know-what,” he said.
Earlier, Archpriest Dimitrii (Smirnov) called civilian women as free prostitutes. He said that the civil wife — a temporary joy. In his opinion, Russian women do not understand what marriage is.
