Social media can be a ‘vanity fair,’ says Russian patriarch

March 04, 2015

In remarks made after a recent Lenten liturgy, the head of the Russian Orthodox Church criticized the vanity manifested in discussions on social media networks.

“Every person has a chance to say something that becomes known to many other people, especially in social net[work]s,” said Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, according to the Interfax news agency.

“If we examine these spontaneous discussions, we will see the human vanity fair,” he continued, as he criticized those who “try to show themselves, not to search for the truth.”
