Moscow Patriarch urges acceptance of immigrants
Catholic World News - December 28, 2010
Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill has called for acceptance of the immigrants who are flocking into Moscow, suggesting that xenophobic feelings have fueled a surge in crime in the city.
“The Orthodox faithful should become pioneers in overcoming inter-ethnic tensions,” Patriarch Kirill said. He argued that the Orthodox faith cannot support “the idea of national superiority.”
