Vladimir Putin Blasts Leftist Ideology
Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a speech to the Russian people Tuesday, during which he attacked the Western push for left-wing gender ideology and other similar extremist trends. In his eyes, should Western nations not change course, they are barreling toward a “spiritual catastrophe.”
Putin turned his attention to the Anglican Church, which he said is “considering a gender-neutral God. May God forgive them for they know not what they do.”
He added, “Millions of people in the West understand they are being led to a real spiritual catastrophe.”
As PJ Media noted, it goes against conventional Christian doctrine for one to modify such fundamental teachings.
Putin argued that Western nations are bastardizing history in an effort to cater to ‘woke’ ideologies and chastised the Church of England’s recent decision to force priests to bless gay marriages.
“They distort historical facts, constantly attack our culture, the Russian Orthodox Church, and other traditional religions of our country,” Putin said.
“Look at what they do with their own peoples: the destruction of the family, cultural and national identity, perversion, and the abuse of children are declared the norm. And priests are forced to bless same-sex marriages.”
A spokesman from the Church of England apparently denied Putin’s assertions that they would be creating a ‘gender-neutral’ God, with the Daily Mail reporting him as saying, “There are also absolutely no plans to abolish or substantially revise currently authorised liturgies and no such changes could be made without extensive legislation.”
During the same speech, Putin also touched on the Russia-Ukraine war, emphasizing that he would like for a negotiation to take place.
“We were doing everything possible to solve this problem peacefully, negotiating a peaceful way out of this difficult conflict, but behind our backs a very different scenario was being prepared,” Putin reportedly stated in Russia’s parliament.
This speech by the Russian president comes mere days before the one-year anniversary of its conflict with Ukraine. Putin first sent his military into the country on Feb. 24, 2022.
Tens of thousands of men have lost their lives since, according to the Daily Mail.
“The people of Ukraine themselves have become hostages of the Kyiv regime and its Western masters, who have actually occupied this country in a political, military, and economic sense,” Putin said of the conflict.
