Putin proposed mentioning God in the Constitution

Another cleric victory

The State Duma introduced the presidential amendments to the Constitution of the Russian Federation. Among them, there are the consolidation of the succession of the Russian Federation in relation to the USSR, as well as mentioning of God in the Constitution.

State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin said how the amendment about God would sound:

The Russian Federation, united by a thousand-year history, preserving the memory of the ancestors who transmitted to us the ideals and faith in God, as well as the continuity of the development of the Russian state, recognizes the historically established state unity

Thus, the clerics won another victory in the struggle against the secular state. Now faith in God will be a sign and proof of loyalty to the state and government. Of course, it looks outwardly strange that the bourgeois clerical Russia, now saturated with the religious dope, is the successor of the socialist state.

The introduction of this amendment is explained as follows. In this way, the authorities play along with the Russian Orthodox Church and other religious organizations, which are an important part of the propaganda apparatus, urging citizens to humble and accept power. Clerical propaganda will now be conducted with the help of the Constitution. Both the authorities and the church benefit. The church will increase the number of parishioners, and hence incomes, and the state will receive more obedient, more clogged citizens who are easier to manage.

At the same time, of course, the authorities need to maintain the succession of the modern Russia with respect to the USSR, because otherwise the Russian Federation will be thrown out of various international organizations, and the possession of certain territories is also becoming controversial. Obviously, this amendment is introduced so that judges and other overly zealous anti-advisers do not have the desire to make rash statements.
