Patriarch Kirill says that any Russians dying in Ukraine will have their sins forgiven.

Do not listen to him. Patriarch Kirill is wrong and blasphemous and not a proper Christian like me. Proper Christians like me believe in a just war where the Invisible Magic Friend is on the side of the just. OK, everyone always claims to be the right side, which explains why the Invisible Magic Friend never seems to intervene on either side.

Hurricane Ian shows that humans are feeble and vulnerable and need the help of the Invisible Magic Friend to save us from the Creation that he created. To deny this is to be arrogant and proud and not at all humble like me.
