Remarkable Orthodox growth
In the last six years the Russian Orthodox Church has increased the number of churches by 5,000 plus 10,000 clergy. I did come across a news item a little while back that in the "European" end of Russia a big aim at vastly increasing churches in both Moscow and St Petersburg had been under way now this is widening and although not my corner a remarkable situation? The head, Patriach Krill  has made it clear that it is not an order by authority to build and increase it is because the people value and want it. Kind of remarkable in a way.

New churches are running not just into hundreds but far more than that and so to is the influence.

The growth of any church/religion, Orthodox or other, is a step backward.

As will be known I am a Protestant but the Orthodox I have to say has  mushroomed. I think that you have a bigger problem with so many variations of a theme over in your corner which don't help so can understand to a degree your stance.
