Belligerent Old Bore Dies

Russian Archpriest Dmitry Smirnov, known for his controversial public statements that led to public outcry and criticism, has died at the age of sixty-nine. In the past, he called for the blessing of nuclear weapons, which he described as the "salvation of the Russian people and its culture." He also called on believers to give all their earnings to the Russian Orthodox church and advised single Russian women to "look for husbands in Africa." In February, he called women living together with their partners "unpaid prostitutes."
