      Patriarch Kirill calls on clergy not to use
      luxury cars
      Moscow, December 28, Interfax - Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All
      Russia has criticized clergymen who use expensive foreign cars.

      "Let's
      think about using transport vehicles that will not serve as an excuse for
      ill-wishers seeking to discredit the clergy," the head of the Russian Orthodox
      Church said on Friday.

      Priests ought to stay moderate in all issues, he
      said.

      There are cars imported from Japan, South Korea and some European
      countries that are comfortable and reliable, but will not attract heightened
      attention, he said.

      Patriarch Kirill said that he refused to accept a
      Mercedes 600 that was presented to him in the 1990s.

      The Patriarch said
      that today he was using cars from the government's garage for security
      reasons.
