“Tanya”: Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya’s Feat
I have a sad fact to relate to you… a friend informed me that John Whiteford has a link to an extremist wesbsite called Palintology. I checked… I fear that it’s correct.
Shame on you, Mr Whiteford! Sarah Palin isn’t even a Christian, she’s the lowest form of sectarian scummer that’s out there. She’s a Pentecostalist, that is, she’s an American Khlyst. As a priest, you’re giving people the impression that they’re equivalent to Christianity, when they’re not. The Pentecostalists are not only the sworn enemies of the Church, they attack all other Christians as well, trying to convert them to their delusionary error.
Sarah Palin stands for a political position condemned by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill in the most severe and uncompromising language. If you don’t know that, you’re ignorant. He’s spoken many times in the Russian media on the topic, sir… His Holiness calls the neoliberal vapourings of the Tea Party filth a FRAUD, sir. Get your mind right, and get that link off your website. Ms Palin is evil on two scores… firstly, she holds a politico-economic ideology condemned by the Church; secondly, and more seriously, she belongs to a Sectarian conventicle condemned as non-Christian by the Church. The Church has friendly relations with other Christians… Catholics, Oriental Orthodox, Reformation Protestants (and that’s the whole range from Mennonites to Liturgical Lutherans)… there’s nothing wrong with that. On the other hand, the Church treats the various sects as adversaries, for they are Satan’s simulacrum of Christianity, they have no real relation to Our Lord Christ.
I am aware that you are a former sectarian, Mr Whiteford… but that doesn’t excuse you… you, of all people, should know better… you should know that such sorts have no resemblance whatsoever to real Christians. You know that Pentecostalists, in particular, are nothing but unbridled Dionysiacs… they’re Satan’s stormtroopers, in fact. What relation does a snake handlin’ meeting have with a Liturgy? No responsible Orthodox Christian should hold Sarah Palin up as a model to emulate.
Instead of such punks, we should hold up models of self-sacrifical courage such as Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya. Pro-American pukes tired to discredit her heroism in the 90s, but the records all came out… and the account given by the KPSU was vindicated, to the last jot and tittle. Reflect on this, Mr Whiteford… the Church accepts the KPRF… but it condemns the right-wing extremism you push on your site. The Church honours the bravery of the secular martyrs of the Great Patriotic War… but it condemns the militaristic aggressions of the USA in Serbia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. His Holiness has met with the leaders of Cuba and Palestine… he has NO problem with the Left, at all. In fact, the Church has made its peace with communism… and communism has made its peace with the Church. That’s a GOOD thing.
I shall be frank… Mr Whiteford isn’t going to listen. In any case, I’m not addressing him as a priest… I’m addressing him as a man with a screwball extremist political opinion. You can choose to follow the path of selfless and sacrificial courage, as Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya did, or, you can follow a phony TV presenter like Sarah Palin, whose only skill is to read copy off a Teleprompter with a “sincere” face, who’s nothing but a shameless and strident shill for the oligarch class.
Sarah or Zoya… what’s your choice? I”ve made mine… what about you?
