Syrian airstrikes a ‘#HolyBattle,’ says #Russian #Orthodox #Church #Persecution #Crusades #tcot

The head of the the Orthodox Church’s public affairs department has reacted positively to the news.

“The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it,” said Vsevolod Chaplin on Interfax news agency.

“Russia took a responsible decision to use military forces to protect the Syrian people from the woes brought on by the tyranny of terrorists,” said an official statement from the Church’s Patriarch Kirill.

The Patriarch, who often speaks out on political issues in support of the Kremlin, went on to say that armed intervention was necessary because “the political process has not led to any noticeable improvement in the lives of innocent people, and they need military protection.”

Must Read: #BenCarsons take on Islam wins support #GJM #tcot

“If people listen to that interview, they’ll notice that I said that anybody, regardless of their interview or affiliation, if they embrace American values and they place the Constitution at the top level, that I embrace that person,” Carson said. “It seems to be hard for people to actually hear English and understand it. . . . Sharia law is completely antithetical to Americanism.”

Carson doubles down on no Muslims in the White House

Republican presidential hopeful Ben Carson is standing by his view that a Muslim should not be president of the United States, telling The Hill in an interview on Sunday that whoever takes the White House should be “sworn in on a stack of Bibles, not a Koran.”

“I do not believe Sharia is consistent with the Constitution of this country,” Carson said. “Muslims feel that their religion is very much a part of your public life and what you do as a public official, and that’s inconsistent with our principles and our Constitution.”
