As for the original question, I am another one to vote "absolutely not". A possible Orthodox background of her ancestors can not be a reason for her canonization. Orthodox background of her ancestors is not possibe, but proven. And the reason for canonization is not her descendance from the long line of priests, but her heroic martyrdom.
But there is no evidence that she was killed for being a Christian; all evidence points to her being killed for her political allegiance to the USSR.
Precisely. Therefore, her canonization for martyrdom cannot be considered by the Orthodox Church.
Simkins, please also provide your answer to Ialmisry's question:
Btw, what you think of Marx? Lenin?
Furthermore, Zoya violated orders and did not return to the base of rebels Because she was captured by the enemy.
and by doing so, she endangered others. As is well known she did not endenger anyone, did not give any information and took all torture herself.
Initially, Zoya ignored the orders and did not return to the base. Then she was captured. Moreover, from a military point of view, instead of providing attacks at Nazi soldiers, making explosions, etc., Zoya just kept setting homes of local Russian peasants in fire. Yes, Nazis were staying in those homes. But Nazis could just run away, however local residents were loosing all their property in a winter time. Who could assist these poor farmers, victims of arsons, in the midst of cold Russian winter? Does this behavior come anywhere close to the actions of the Saint?
Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya's last words were: "Stalin will come!" Did not appear in the protocols of first questioning of the witnesses.
Or it could be edited in 1960s.
Also, back in late 1980s Moscow-based newspaper Argumenty i fakty (Arguments and Facts) presented allegations about her treatment in a mental hospital prior to World War II.She was treated for meningitis.
According to Argumenty i fakty
, Ms. Kosmodemyanskaya had been registered as a person with psychiatric problems in one of the mental institutions. It has been a general practice to do so in USSR.
I didn't realize that people got to "choose" whom they wanted to see canonized.
Бог есть синтетическая личность всего народа --Достоевский
No, God is our Creator and our Redeemer. We cannot tell God what He should do.
And the miracle did occur. The Germans ran all the way back to Berlin, after they already celebrated their victory.
Are you implying that Nazis were defeated because of intercession of Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya???
But to say that anyone but Russians played any major part in defeat of Germany is a lie.
No, it is true. As Heorhij indicated, it was a combined effort of Allied Forces. More then obvious. Everyone played a major role. Every soldier deserved a lot of respect. For the record, Soviet Army was extremely multinational. As a matter of fact, some Russians were fighting against Nazis in other armies including Ukrainian Insurgent Army.
Also, based on your site, on the page where you located pictures of demons, http://reverent.org/zoya/defamation.html
you identify the destruction of anti-Christian, anti-human, murderous Communist regime as opening of the gates of hell? Not the regime, not its start in 1917, but its end. This is how I read it...
