Question by Ryan: Should Grigori Rasputin officially be named a saint?
There are people trying to get Rasputin officially canonized by the Eastern Orthodox Church because he is already regarded by many Russians as what is known as an “unofficial saint” or folk saint. What is your opinion on the matter?
Yes, no, or don’t care?

Answer by Maurog IV
I don’t care much. He was a charlatan who preyed on the queen’s weakness and her son’s illness, and abused that influence recklessly. On the other hand, he was a unique and memorable character, and that makes him pretty cool.
Probably would fit right in with all the other so called saints.
