      Patriarch Kirill leader lashes out against "theomachists"

      Moscow, January 25, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all Russia
      has come vigorously against "liberal" anthropocentric philosophies.

      "The issue is not those pinpricks that theomachists are trying to
      inflict on the body of the Church through their various actions. The
      issue is the future of the world," the Patriarch said at the 21st
      International Christmas Conference in Moscow on Thursday.

      Mankind would not survive without the moral values "that God put into
      human nature," he said.

      Nor would it survive if it goes for the "liberal concept" that each
      human being is "an alpha and omega, that he is authorized to decide what
      is good and what is evil, that he can not only decide on his own future
      but also has the right to exercise any influence he likes on the world
      surrounding him," the Patriarch said.

      "What the Church does today with support from its numerous allies -
      intellectuals, teachers and so on - means accomplishing the main task
      that faces people, the task of preserving human civilization," he said.
