If your church ignores what your messiah told you to do and instead does the opposite, you're the one who hates your religion. No one disobeys Christ as consistently as Christians.
American fundies will be creaming themselves over this story until they realize the Orthodox Church is the other one in the most original sense of their vast infighting cult. And the Ruskies aren't planning to help Catholics and Protestants. Heck, they outlawed Jehovah's Witnesses.
Very few things are worse than religion taken over by a parasitic government to use as a puppet. Unfortunately a crazy moron with the launch codes for the largest nuclear arsenal in the world is one of them, lest I sound like I'm saying we have the moral high ground.
