Interfax reports that a new Ten Commandments party has been formed in Russia. 134 delegates-- including Christians, Muslims and Jews-- attended the party's inaugural Congress on Feb. 17. Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, speaking at the Congress, said in part:
I hope that your activity will help to restore moral values, God's Ten Commandments in the everyday political life, in the life of our society. I hope that you will stay faithful to these God's Commandments, that you'll be able to unite a considerable number of people.
