In the Russian Orthodox Church hope that the Vice-speaker of the state Duma from LDPR Igor Lebedev, it is incorrect to speak in the address of the girl without hands, will make conclusions from the following statements of its public resonance and will change his position about the «eternal torment».

Earlier the state Secretary of the Central Bank Alexander Torshin has published on Twitter a video in which a little girl with no arms eat with his feet. In comments Lebedev asked the question, «why are these children allowed to be born, because it’s torture, not life,» noting that «modern medicine defines pathology in advance.» His tweet said the Deputy from «United Russia» Sergei Boyarsky, who wrote that it was «disgusting position.» Lebedev, in turn, noted that «repulsive when such suffer and not live.»

Commenting on the Lebedev on his page in Facebook, the head of the Synodal Department of the Moscow Patriarchate for Church-state relations and mass-media Vladimir Legoyda expressed hope that the Deputy of the state Duma «will be able to understand why his words about the fact that children with certain pathologies, it is better not to be born, not to worry, has caused such a reaction.»

«I understand that eternal torment is the consequence not of physical ailments and diseases of the soul. And that human dignity is due to his image and likeness of the Creator, who alone decides who is born. But we live to learn to love is the dignity of a person. Any,» wrote Legoyda.
