The Divine Right of Things: Putin helped broker the end of a schism between the Russian church and a rival outfit set up by anti-communist exiles after the 1917 Revolution.  The rival outfit (Rival Outfit Church Outside Russia) seems to be doing OK.

Maybe it's me, but when I read it I felt like there was an obvios bias or editorializing to the article.
