Errors of Russia?

Russia is experiencing a dramatic increase in support of Christian values. The stats below are the result of a recent poll: Christian Values on Sodomy, Abortion, Surge In Russia - 83% Reject Homosexuality

The proportion of Russian citizens who consider abortion unacceptable has tripled over the course of the past 20 years, from 12% to 35%.

The number that condemns adultery and same-sex relationships has also significantly increased, according to data from a recent Levada Center sociological survey. According to experts, the change in public opinion attests to the strengthening of traditional family values, reports.

The nationwide survey held in late December 2017 showed that the majority of Russians (68%) condemn extramarital sexual relations, while only 50% condemned it in 1998. The 2017 number includes 77% of women and 57% of men.

Those disapproving of homosexual relationships increased from 68 to 83% in the same time period, with only a 1% difference between men and women.

Those who responded that abortion is unacceptable, even in the case of low-income families, increased from 12 to 35%. Here women held a more strict view, with 37% condemning abortion in all cases, as compared to 31% of men. No difference was seen in regards to the age of the woman responding. READ MORE HERE

REMNANT COMMENT: If dramatic changes such as these can happen in Russia of all places, under the spiritual direction of a schismatic church, just imagine what would happen if the Catholic Church were to abandon the demonic "spirit of Vatican II" and start being Catholic again! 

The Catholic infrastructure is still in place. Most of the empty churches still stand. The schools, seminaries, convents. The only thing missing is the Faith.

If Pope Francis were to stop hobnobbing with the globalists, whining about climate change, and bullying faithful Catholics….if he were to become Catholic again, cease with such obscenities as denying the very existence of hell, and use his bully pulpit to thunder against atheism, abortion, the attack on the family, the gender ideology—well in short order, the Catholic Church would save the very civilization she built in the first place.

Vatican II wrecked the Catholic Church and it's now wrecking Western Civilization. It placed Modernists in the chairs of the Apostles and emptied the pews of the faithful. So, at least for now, even Russia is more Catholic than Rome.

God help us all.
