Head of the Patriarchal Commission for family Affairs Archpriest Dimitry Smirnov criticized men, whose main joy in life was watching football matches.
“All my life – “Zenith”, “Spartacus”… And then he drank, ate, then bath, fishing, then “Zenith”, “Spartacus”. And that life, or what? From Zenit to Spartak, ‘ said the priest on air of TV channel “Union”, answering the questions in the program “Conversations with father”, reports “Interfax”.
The reason for going to football was a call to women in the audience, who told her husband after many years of alcoholism has decided to commit suicide. “He washed down with a grief? Then from a mind in a loop to climb? Really was drunk that longing tortured, absolutely black, hopeless, soul already in hell… What happened?” – the priest asked.
“Well, you walk the streets – the temple see? Well, at least you go in there, at least look, well, buy the book, well, read! Not just Zenit, Spartak,” said father Dimitri.
