Orthodox Christianity and Islam are based on the same fundamental values, President Vladimir Putin said in an address to a religious conference in Kyrgyzstan.
The conference, titled "Orthodoxy and Islam Religions of Peace," aimed to promote interethnic and interreligious dialogue between Russia and Kyrgyzstan.
"Islam and Orthodox Christianity, just like other world religions, are based on fundamental humanistic values that are of enduring importance on mercy and love for ones near, justice and respect for human beings," the state-run TASS news agency quoted Putin as saying Thursday.
The address, which was read out to the conference by Russian Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan Nikolai Udovichenko, pushed for cooperation between government agencies and religious organizations to bolster "civil peace and accord" between the two countries.
The Russian president added that it is "essential" to preserve these ties for future generations and to [enhance] the role of religious organizations in protecting and promoting spiritual, moral and family values.
Islam is Russias second-largest religion behind Orthodox Christianity and its Muslim population is expected to more than double in the next 15 years. The majority of Kyrgyzstan's population is Muslim.
Stonings and beheadings. Uh, no, I don’t think so.
Putin knows better then to use Islam and peace in the same sentence. What a farce ! Theres something else going on ?
The “values” as espoused in theory are one thing.
But what about actual behavior?
Who is more likely to chop off your head? An Orthodox Christian or a devout Muslim?
Who is more likely to rape your daughter, or perpetrate violence if he doesn’t get his way in transforming the society he lives in?
And expanding on that a bit, of all the faith traditions represented in the “Coexist” bumper stickers on cars, which of the faith traditions seems to have trouble getting along with those of other faith traditions? Which among them seems to be involved in violent confrontations with the other faiths?
I dont think that either religion has been taken over by homosexuals.
I knew the pope was a commi but I didnt think he was into suicide vests.
You might be surprised by the amount of faggotry and bestiality going on in mohammed-land.
Islam is fundamentally different from Christianity and Judaism because it commands the killing of unbelievers for all time.
Yes in the Bible God commanded the Israelites to kill their enemies. But not for all time. There was a limit.
Meanwhile Islam commands Muslims to kill non-Muslims, past, present, and future.
Their holy book commands them to kill you right now in 2019.
That is the difference.
That is an ugly insult.
His Orthodox supporters need to.set him.straight
He sounds like George Bush.
Wow, what’s he smoking?
Yet another lie.
Yep, the black Christian taxi drivers I talked with in my visits to the ME would complain to me about their customers taking “advantage” of them while driving. They could not complain.
The mohammedans are very much into buggering little boys.
The martyrdom is really different. The martyrs from each may be in the same place at the same time, but the way they act and qualify for martyrdom is very different.
