      Orthodox Metropolitan warns Europe against abandoning Christian roots


      VIENNA. May 3 (Interfax) - The Russian Orthodox Church believes
      that Europe's abandonment of its Christian roots could ultimately lead
      European society to shocks comparable to those that Russia experienced
      under the Bolsheviks, Metropolitan Kirill of Smolensk and Kaliningrad
      has said.
      "Russia's history in the 20th century should serve as a warning for
      contemporary Europe: the abandonment of spiritual and cultural
      foundations on which this or that civilization is based could pose a
      serious threat to civilization itself," Father Kirill said at an
      international conference in Vienna on Wednesday.
      "We worry that, by losing the link with Christianity, Europe might
      finally come to forms of pressure on or even suppression of an
      individual that have always been alien to it," he said.
