Yeah, Rasputin was not a monk. He was a charlatan. The Russian Orthodox establishment despised him.
Here's an interesting bit of info: at that time, saying anything derogatory about the Tsar or his family was illegal and demanded arrest. Due to illicit and vulgar media at that time, such as post cards portraying Rasputin and the Tsaritsa fornicating, it is known that rumors about the Tsaritsa having an affair with Rasputin, sometimes with the Tsar joining in, were rampant. But, if you look at the arrest records at the time, there were far fewer arrests of people making disparaging remarks about the Tsaritsa than any other of the high up royalty. Why? Because people including the police believed the rumors enough that they didn't think they warranted arresting. That contempt for the Tsaritsa and, also, for a Tsar who could not keep "control" over his own wife, precipitated the February 1917 Revolution (March in our Gregorian calendar).
Check out Boris Kolinitskii, if your interested in this kind of stuff. Kolinitskii was a professor of mine in Russia and he is awesome. He sometimes gets groundlessly lambasted by Western scholars who prefer a more statistical approach to historical analysis, but as Kolinitskii pointed out, what people think dictates their actions far more than what is real, and that can cause some unexpected and interesting shifts in reality for those who just look at statistics without an understanding of popular perception to interpret them.

Regarding the D3 monk, I wish they had used a real Russian person with a Russian accent. I know that Russian and English speakers are not going to make up a big portion of their English audience, but for those of us who fall into that category, his voice sounds awful.
