  1. I am Born and raised Belarusian, my mom moved me to America when I was 12. One of the reasons was to get me away from the continual and accepted domestic abuse in our household. I clear as day remember the cops showing up and saying “figure it out amongst yourselves” and my grandfather using an axe to get through a door where my uncle was beating my little cousins (sometimes to the point of breaking bones). This was in the 90s and I’m sad to see that the culture hasn’t changed much. There are good and loving families there though!!

  2. ah yes another case of churches looking the other way from abuse.

  3. Another proof that any religion engaged in politics is a liability.

  4. Religion is just a point of view with a self-imposed authority.

    If your point of view includes punishing women by cutting off their hands, or if it’s okay with domestic violence in general, you are opting out of civil society.

    We need to stop giving a point of view more authority over communities simply because they claim it’s a religious point of view.

  5. What a sick country that is

  6. Anyone who can smile days after having their hands chopped off with an axe is unbreakable.

    Also fuck religion and fuck russia.

  7. The church can’t risk alienating their base.

  8. This is why religion and politics don’t mix.

  9. You know? I really like Russia. I liked the Soviet Union too. Lots of interesting ideas, novels, math, science, social policies, ideals, etc. But they keep doing these inefably evil things and I wonder if there’s something in their water or whatever, because these people go to DARK places quite often and have been doing so for centuries.

  10. Gotta love those Christian family values.

  11. the orthodox church is heavily invested in domestic assault

  12. Ah yes, the old “Beat your wife” religion.

  13. Cave people mentality. Picking up a heavy bone and hitting the person next to them, that’s what it’s like.

    Ftards!

  14. Common sense: Don’t beat your wife.

    Orthodox church: Hmmmmm…..nope.

  15. lets be clear: there are barely 3-4% of russian population who are actual christians, other like “traditional religion” on the same level as halloween or pagan maslenitsa.

    russian orthodox church is just a one of the putin’s ways to control population.

  16. Thou shallnot beat yer neighbour,unless it’s a women.
    god,2020

  17. The Catholic church is awful, but the Orthodox church tries even harder.

  18. I am so happy that Orthodox church have no coded power in Russia at least for now.

  19. I mean he got 14 years in prison, yall act like he got a parking ticket

  20. Who don’t consider women human.

  21. Orthodox Church is as bad as radical Islam

  22. Should Women Submit to Abuse According to the Bible? (No)
