Russian art-group ‘Svechenie’ plan to create the scary installation which will be in place for some 9 hours is a tribute to British novelist J. R. R. Tolkien and film adaptations of his most famous works “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit.”




Russian Orthodox Church has slammed plans to erect a real-life 'Eye of Sauron' in Moscow, saying that the art project dedicated to the premiere of the final part of the “Hobbit” movie trilogy may have bad consequences for the Russian capital.

'Eye of Sauron' is “in any case, a demonic symbol,” Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, a senior church official in charge of relations with the society, stressed.

“Such a symbol of triumphant evil rising above Moscow and becoming one of the tallest objects in the city…is it good or bad? I am afraid it’s mostly bad. One shouldn’t be surprised if something goes wrong with the city after that,” Chaplin told Govorit Moskva radio station.


I really don't think that this is newsworthy other than the ridiculous response from the Russian Orthodox Church,
so thought I would share.

Whilst I'm a Christian and I do believe in Demons and the such, Christians are the ones who give this authority over them, if they simply used common sense and understood that it's from a man made movie, and if they harden their hearts to the fact it could be a demonic symbol than it looses it's 'demonic authority' and becomes simply a movie icon. In other words we create our reality, and they're creating theirs a world of fear.

Sooo... the Russian Orthodox Church is saying that according to their beloved piece of fiction, a symbol from another piece of fiction is demonic? Go Ruskies!??

Newsworthy for art's sake, though it kinda does look out of place, and fans of Tolkien.

Ruskies? How about Christians? Christians in the US would likely do the same if it was placed in let's say, hmm Oklahoma, the Catholic church would be all over that!
