What did Pope John Paul mean by moral crimes?
The West's capitulation to a sexual revolution of easy divorce, rampant promiscuity, pornography, homosexuality, feminism, abortion, same-sex marriage, euthanasia, assisted suicide — the displacement of Christian values by Hollywood values.
But the war to be waged with the West is not with rockets. It is a cultural, social, moral war where Russia's role, in Putin's words, is to "prevent movement backward and downward, into chaotic darkness and a return to a primitive state."
In 2013, the Kremlin imposed a ban on homosexual propaganda, a ban on abortion advertising, a ban on abortions after 12 weeks and a ban on sacrilegious insults to religious believers.
"While the other super-powers march to a pagan world-view," writes WCF's Allan Carlson, "Russia is defending Judeo-Christian values. During the Soviet era, Western communists flocked to Moscow. This year, World Congress of Families VII will be held in Moscow, Sept. 10-12."

God takes sides?
Unfortunately, if it serves an individual or a country's purpose, they will always think God is on their side. Our own military prays to God before going into battle thinking God will keep them safe while they "kill" his own creation. Terrorists think they do God's bidding when they kill innocent people all over the world! These same people will defend the 10 commandments because they believe it's God's law. Yet they look away when "killing someone" is justified in their own eyes.
If God is a loving God, the last thing he would support is using violence, torture and killing, to settle the world's differences. It's one of the many hypocrisies found in religion today.
