House Speaker Michael Johnson is right to advance Ukraine aid package. Stand against Russian propaganda.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., describes herself as a “Christian Nationalist” but doesn’t seem to know much about Christians outside our nation. In a move that would have made Soviet propagandists proud, she has claimed that Russia is a protector of Christianity.

In a podcast with Steve Bannon, Greene said Russia is “not attacking Christianity. As a matter of fact, they seem to be protecting it.”

Protecting it? Greene was apparently unaware of the numerous reports from reputable religious freedom organizations and Christian groups and publications accusing Russia of torturing and killing religious leaders. In February, the International Religious Freedom or Belief Alliance, a group with 38 member countries, asserted that Russia has killed 30 Ukrainian religious leaders and held 26 captive in the past two years.

    Is this because they’re trying to portray Russia as a Christian bastion?

      It’s because they are trying to portray Russia they way Russia wants to be portrayed.

    You mean we can’t trust the whacko who’s obsessed with Jewish space lasers? Imagine that.

    How much would you think she knows about Russian Orthodox Christianity?

    I’d say she probably doesn’t know much about it. Or even know that their version of the cross looks like ☦️ instead of ✝️.

    Marjory Taylor Green is a Russian asset (and most likely, so are many/most other high-profile Republicans)

    While living here, I encountered some good, faithful folks and clerics of lower ranks, but if you really lean into lore of orthodoxal church, ugh, you’d learn about their symbiosis with power, with construction business, them having alcohol and tabacco monopolies, and then that many of their top branch are informants or even agents.

    Some of those who wear crosses, are the same that work forces.
