Is this perhaps representative?

Maybe I should go back learning their funny letters and big words...
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Exactly what he's talking about.

biro, this and the bride purchase comment are uncalled for implications about Sharbel's character. 
I'm issuing a 10% warning; if you'd like to appeal, please do so via PM.

The head of the Lower House Committee for Family, Women and Children, MP Tamara Pletnyova (Communist Party) said that in her opinion relations with foreigners should be avoided because children born from such unions would most likely be unhappy in their lives.

“We should give birth to our own children. I'm not a nationalist, but nonetheless. I know that the children suffer as well, and then they are abandoned and stay here with the mother," the lawmaker said in an interview with Echo of Moscow radio.


The good comrade should at least know that any child one gives birth to is by definition her own. ::)

^I wish I understood Russian. Russian Patriotism seems to be often beyond parody and I fear that Western media often misses gems Russian politicians pour over their citizens.
I just need to find out how to say it in Slavonic!

I can’t see any reason why these women would be open to romance with foreigners.

Well, if you consider "spiritual and non religious" with atheists, it's 38 to 41. If you include the pagans, that's 39.2 to 41.

That's close to 50-50, in terms of ratio, not the total amount of religious people in Russia.

Stats about religion in Russia vary an awful lot. Since it's not an altogether very transparent country and I'm no statistician, I tend to ignore them collectively.

I’m a foreigner looking for a Russian woman who isn’t cold as ice. I have double vision from being so hot blooded. I’m a dirty white boy who doesn’t want to play head games. I’m available any day except blue Monday. Call me. 867-5309.
