True belief

June 27, 2008

Re "In Russia, Jesus enters the classroom," June 23

It comes as no surprise to see Christianity holding new sway over the Russian people and their leaders. Once the thin crust of the Soviet Union cracked and fell away, the rock-hard core of Orthodox Christianity saw the light of day again. One only has to take a brief look at the history of Russia to appreciate the total integration of Russian culture with the Orthodox Christian belief system.

My Russian grandparents may have given up their homeland 100 years ago to come to America, but they would never give up their deep-rooted belief in the Almighty. We once again see that political systems come and go, but belief systems endure.
