Do you think Patriarch Kirill actually owns a yacht? Here it is at least as reported:
But most damning of all is what the report calls Patriarch Kirill photo-shopping an image which shows him wearing a $30,000 watch. It is bad enough that there is a before and after shot of this, but in the photo-shopped image where the watch is removed from the Patriarch's wrist, he supposedly forgot to remove its reflection on the glassed desk below his arm! If true this is kind of funny!
What the hatchet job or article points out very clearly is how corruption enters the hierarchy of the Church as well as its laity when it is in league with the state or a dictator or a president or a particular political party.
During the communist era in the Soviet Union, the Russian Orthodox Church was infiltrated with Communists more loyal to its atheistic Utopian ideology than to the Church.
