The Russian Orthodox believers who treat the Tsar like a God
On July 17, 2018, it will be 100 years since the last Emperor, Nicholas II.. were brutally murdered by Bolshevik thugs.. And His Eminence Tikhon, is the official Church representative to an important commission, which includes prosecutors, forensic experts, historians and government investigators. It is charged with a task worthy of an Ionesco play: to verify whether the murder of the Imperial family was “ritualistic” (in plain language, they were killed by the Jews) or just what most people think it was – a lawless summary execution of innocents. In this capacity Bishop Tikhon has become a central figure in determining whether one of the most enduring 20th-century conspiracy theories will be finally debunked. Putin aspires to an image of a wise leader who gave the Russians back their glory and finally ended the civil war between the Reds and the Whites by creating a new historical narrative in which both camps were right and patriotic – thus washing the Soviet state of its multiple Putin’s world the Russian state and its leaders – be it emperors, general secretaries or presidents – are always right and people should never question their actions.Putin does not condone Stalin’s terror. What he does is laud the people for not rebelling against the communists even during the “great terror”. For the president, the Romanov murder anniversary and the burial of the Tsarevich and Grand Duchess Maria are events which will put him on a par with Yeltsin, the founder of modern Russia, a flawed but colossal figure. It will also solidify his image as someone who gave the Russians their new history: that of brilliant victories and shining achievements in which the state was always right and the people secure only when they followed their wise leaders.For the patriarch, 2018 is a chance to put to rest the Romanov murder conspiracy and to showcase the strong bonds between his Church and the Kremlin.

Stay Woke, Cultivate Virtue - Mere Orthodoxy | Christianity, Politics, and Culture
Resisting the spiritual strongholds of racism, sexism, and greed requires solidarity between people who recognize that self-discipline is inseparable from advancing social goods. The religious must be willing to follow the critique that synthetic moralism makes about how systemic oppression– even that within Christian institutions– hinders our flourishing, often by making it harder for individuals and communities to grow in virtue. The non-religious must come up with a way to form a community that can reckon with inner wickedness and outward injustice– or simply join the one which already exists.
