Russian Church against state financing of immoral art


Moscow, February 4,  - Participants in the Bishops Conference in Moscow urge the state to revise its attitude to financing cultural projects.

"Participants in the conference express their conviction that today it is needed to tell spirits in the field, an ability to tell the beautiful from the ugly, harmony from disharmony, culture uplifting human spirit from anticulture enslaving him to destructive vices," the final document posted at the Moscow Patriarchate official website on Tuesday reads.

The bishops are seriously concerned with "the practice of financing the latter from taxpayers' means as their majority do not share aspirations of its allies."

They are also concerned with spreading of neopagan cults and youth subcultures "that cultivate the vice."
