“Our men are our national catastrophe, because they abandon their girlfriends, they devour their best years of life. A woman spends his best years on him, then he finds a new one ... This is generally a shameless nation of sissies, ”he said.

The archpriest noted that some men are not able to "protect, feed and clothe" a woman, but at the same time "dare to raise a hand."

“I am completely completely on the women's side, the woman in general, of course, is weaker ... the commanders of the ship sailing on the sea of ​​life should be a man, and the educator should be a man and teacher at school, as it was 100 years ago,” he said opinion of the archpriest.

According to him, at the present time “everything is the other way around”, since from an early age boys are surrounded and raised by women, which is why “men acquire feminine features.”

Earlier, the head of the patriarchal commission for family affairs, Archpriest Dimitri Smirnov, during a meeting with members of the Orthodox community OrthodoxBRO, compared common-law wives to “free prostitutes.”

The head of the synodal department for relations between the church and society and the media of the Moscow Patriarchate Vladimir Legoyda called these words of the archpriest unacceptable.
