Der Spiegel Interviews Metropolitan Kyrill

As you can tell from this photo that accompanied the recent interview in Der Spiegel, Russian Orthodox Metropolitan KYRILL is no pushover.

In fact, His Eminence (who oversees external church affairs for the Russian Orthodox Church) is startlingly forthright on a whole host of topics, many of which were broached in a recent free-wheeling, bare-knuckle conversation covering everything from post-Soviet Russian politics, evolution, homosexuality, and Orthodox-Catholic relations.

According to various online news sources, Metropolitan KYRILL has been discussed as a potential successor to present Moscow Patriarch ALEXEI II.
