- title: Russian Patriarch Again Supports Blasphemy Laws
"Patriarch Kirill, the supreme leader of the Russian Orthodox Church, is unsurprisingly criticizing the publishing of cartoons that are viewed as blasphemous by some Muslims. Kirill was the main force pushing for harsh anti-blasphemy laws in Russia, so this is expected."
"How could they join people who sympathize with victims of terrorism and the protection and justification of horrible blasphemy in one protest!" he said.
Patriarch Kirill said freedom ends "where human ugliness, tasteless, immorality, and destruction of the moral nature of man begins."
