    Rasputin said you cannot know sin until you have sinned,he was a big advocate of leading a debauched life so that you could then have a platform on which to base a pure life? Does this sound like the rhetoric of a good man, to you?

    That's not a fact. He did have a lot of influence over her, part of that was due to concern over her hemophiliac son. And it she wasn't a "queen". She was Tsarina Alexandra.

    He was not a good person, and only served his own interests, from all of the accounts I have read.

    Rasputin was much more comparable to a religious cult leader like David Koresh except that he went after and got the most high ranking followers possible. Apparently he was quite an hypnotic, personally mesmerizing person. He wasn't the type who'd want the hassles of an actual political office or position.
