200 new churches for Moscow

200 new Orthodox churches will be built in Moscow in the next 30 years, says a project considered by Moscow's Mayor Yuri Luzhkov and the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill.

They discussed changes in Moscow's architecture which also includes building new churches.

According to Kirill, 90 percent of Muscovites are Orthodox and altogether they need some 590 new churches.

I doubt I'm the only one who wishes the Russians would start sending missionaries to the United States. The more, the better.

Given America's canonical "difficulties" the last thing we need is a bunch of MP drones muddying the landscape further.
