Eight years ago on this day four Evangelical men were leaving their prayer house in the occupied Donbas. Russians arrested them, tortured them in horrible ways, and then murdered them. These men were among many victims singled out for their religious beliefs.
Russians have been murdering believers – Muslims in the Crimea, Protestants in the Donbas, Orthodox in Svyatohirsk and many other places – for eight years. There’s no religion they like more than another. Well, that’s not completely true. They really like their own cult of superiority.
The cult’s dogma is that Russians are superior and the world is evil because it refuses to recognize that superiority. They’ve been battling religion (any religion) for over a hundred years under one pretext or another.
