What is ethnic christians?

Reader comment on item: Muslim Russia?

Do they really exist, or it's an imaginative community? Anyway, there is a very tiny minority of christians among us, Russians, because most of our "orthodox christians" are either superstitious atheists/agnostics or just pretend to be belivers.

Sincerely yours, deputy Captain Obvious from the godless land of Russia.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I used this term by extension from "ethnic Muslims." I find it useful, pointing to identity rather than faith & practice.
