Russian Christians, Muslims and Jews to Launch Political Party

The Ten Commandments Party - a secular movement which seeks to establish religious ethical principles in the society - is expected to be registered in Russia. The organization committee consists of representatives from various confessions, including Christians, Muslims, Jews and even some agnostics.

      The head of the newly-established movement is Sergey Mezentsev – a professional philosopher and the leader of the Blissful Russia movement.

      According to the committee, the new party will be of temporal kind and its principles would follow spiritual and ethical norms based on the well-known Decameron of the Old Testament.

      Despite the fact that the Blissful Russia unites mostly Evangelical Baptists, the Ten Commandments Party gained support from the Russian Orthodox Church, though its spokesman saidthe Orthodox priests can't join the party, as the Church has officially forbidden them from any participation in political projects since 1997. 

      However, the party has not officially registered yet and there can be certain problems with the registration, as Russian law forbids the creation of political parties based on religious beliefs.
