This phenomenons exists both at the institutional level and at the level of social consciousness. Its main manifestations for consensus about the Orthodox in the consciousness of society rightfully attributed three interrelated stable trends: trust in the community to the church in the face of the Russian Orthodox Church; the prevalence of a positive image of Christianity and the church; predominance of positive social expectations from religion and the church, and their interaction with society. Preliminary displays description of the consensus against the Orthodox is done.
