Russian monks told to avoid mobile temptation

Written by Nick Farrell

Apple in the Garden

The head of the Russian Orthodox Church has urged monks not to use mobile phones to access the Internet.

According to Patriarch Kirill the world wide wibble is the biggest temptation your average monk has to face. He said that many monks act quite unreasonably. They leave the world in order to create favorable conditions for salvation, and on the other hand, they take their mobile telephone and start to enter the Internet where there is a large number of sinful and tempting things.

The monastic tradition is by definition strict and does not need to adapt to modern conditions, he said. Kirill has in the past warned against "manipulation" on the Internet. However an Orthodox Church official, speaking on condition of anonymity, has said the patriarch does use the Internet himself. Clearly he is above temptation.

The Russian Orthodox Church has been resurging since the end of atheist Soviet Communist rule in 1991 and Kirill is a big fan of Tsar Putin.
