Russian authorities are investigating Andrei Papov’s Kuzya-the-God sect after members allegedly attacked an inquisitive TV crew with corrosive chemicals. Followers believe Papov is the reincarnation of both Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary. The Russian Orthodox Church moved against Kuzya-the-God when it learned that sect followers, pretending to be Orthodox monks and priests, were collecting thousands of dollars in donations at Orthodox fairs.
