Satanism is running rampant throughout Russia, according to a priest at a Murmansk church defaced by vandals.
Earlier this month, according to an Interfax report, the Church of the Savior-on-the-Waters, built in memory of lost seamen was targeted with Satanic symbols and animal blood.
"We are alarmed with the increased activity of the Satanists in the city," said Rev. Andrei, the rector of the Orthodox church. "We think that they perpetrated the sacrilege of the church."
The priest said young people with inverted crosses on their breasts were often observed in the church.
"Satanism is flourishing in our country and can be seen not only in the painting of church buildings by young people," said the priest. "For example, a cross has been erected recently on the hill in Vidyaevo (a military settlement of the North Fleet submariners), but was sacriliged the next day."
Authorities said investigations are proceeding, but that the lack of witnesses will make prosecution difficult.
Needless to say, these are not actual Satanists committing these crimes, but heretical devil-worshippers. If the blindlighters succeed in their conversion, then good riddance! Stratification will have been completed. Whine: All they needed was a hug after all....
