Russian Patriarch Kiril says smartphones could precede Antihrist

Published

The head of the Russian Orthodox Church says people’s dependence on smartphones and modern technology, the data-gathering capacity of smartphones risks bringing humanity closer to the arrival of the Antichrist.

In an interview shown Monday on state TV, Patriarch Kirill said the Church does not oppose technological progress but is concerned that “someone can know exactly where you are, know exactly what you are interested in, know exactly what you are afraid of” and that such information could be used for centralized control of the world.

Russian social media users largely responded with humor and skepticism, while some accused the Church of “serving the regime”.

Speaking to Russian state TV, Patriarch Kirill said smartphone users should be careful when using the “worldwide web of gadgets” because it represented “an opportunity to gain global control over mankind”.

“The Antichrist is the person who will be at the head of the worldwide web, controlling all of humankind,” he said.

The system, for all its faults, has begun to fight crime the right way no matter who the perpetrator is, Foreign Minister Nikola Dimitrov wrote on his Facebook page a day after arrest of Bojan Jovanovski alias Boki13, the head of 1TV and informal director of MBJ Media Group.

Law enforcement officers raided Jovanovski’s home late on Monday searching for evidence amid f an investigation launched by the public prosecutors for organized crime and corruption. Jovanovski and the other suspect, Zoran Milevski alias Kiceec were remanded in police custody for 30 days. The two are suspected of bribery, receiving kickbacks (illegal payment intended as compensation for favorable treatment or other improper services), unlawful influencing, and money laundering.

“Nobody said it would be easy. We can sink into disappointment and despair, we can feed the self-defeating energy that we are a complete failure. What a masochism and incomprehensible joy to welcome bad news. There is no use in showing triumphant elation or jubilation. The glass is always half empty: ‘I’ve told you so, we will never become a state’. The news today maybe like this: the system, for all its faults, has begun to fight the crime no matter who the perpetrator is.”

“The fight against crime will never end. It is a fight of good versus evil. And this fight has just begun,” Dimitrov says on his Facebook page.
