Vladimir Putin has become the object of veneration for a bizarre Russian all-female sect whose followers believe that the tough-talking prime minister is a reincarnation of the early Christian missionary Paul the Apostle.

Oh how fun! This is not at all that surprising considering the bizarre sectarian groups existing throughout Russian history. Consider the Ioannites, a group who worshiped St. John of Kronstadt as God or some manifestation of God. He had to take out whole page newspaper ads to denounce them, it was so bad.

My thoughts exactly.  I am drafting a letter to him as we speak . . .  :)

Isn't Putin also a huge "gay icon" in Russia?
Men may dislike truth, men may find truth offensive and inconvenient, men may persecute the truth, subvert it, try by law to suppress it. But to maintain that men have the final power over truth is blasphemy, and the last delusion. Truth lives forever, men do not.

Maybe. A google search for "Vladimir Putin Gay" brings up a lot of pages...  ;D I still think our gay-icons-who-are-actually-heterosexual-males would be cooler though.

I read somewhere that Putin has a black belt in the martial arts (Judo?).  Would that do it?
On the other hand, I wonder what his wife thinks about the group? :P

Only geeks study martial arts. The fact that Putin knows sambo is even more reason for calling him a nerd.

He's a great advert for geeks everywhere then! Let us know when you reach his heights of exalted geekiness.

These will pass,
Will pass and change, will die and be no more,
Things bright and green, things young and happy;
And I have gone upon my way
