I wrote this to a friend:
X and I have corresponded, and we’re friends! I keep all my friends under wraps… it drives the plug-uglies CRAZY. They always guess wrong on my informants (Tosi and Potapov are particularly chowderheaded in this… Paffso’s worse, but he’s out of power). Y’ never know what EVIL lurks in the hearts of men (generic, of course… and ironic… satiric… laughing… not serious). Remember, the real Church is a BIG TENT. If you find people pushing “me n’ thee, and me n’ thee only”, they ain’t Orthodox. I have a lot of Pravoslavny contacts on the other side (one in Podkarpatskaya keeps me up on things… they can’t find out much because of the Gestapo-like control of the junta… the UGKTs pigs tried to take over their parish lately, but the people threw ‘em out… that’s all too common today).
That’s all me… what my interlocutor said was personal, so, we ain’t goin’ there!
Spare a thought and prayer for the suffering canonical Orthodox people of the so-called “Ukraine”… it’s worse than the Nasty 90s… back then, the commies stood tall for the Church and the Komsomoltsy defended the churches from Uniate and schismatical slimers paid by Langley. Today, the commies are underground… the Anglo Americans show themselves ever more the true enemy of Christ’s Church (the “Evangelicals” are the worst of the lot). Sadly, in the 90s, the ROCOR helped the Americans knife the Ukraine in the back… some of those who did so haven’t repented… they’re still amongst us, a Fifth Column of the Godless West (but they had to do it, don’t you see… they had homes in the Maryland burbs to pay for).
Our co-religionists hang on the cross! You wouldn’t know it to look at the main official websites. In the liturgy, we’re supposed to pray “for the Christ-loving forces, that God may subdue their every adversary”. This goes double for a situation where Uniates deliberately target Orthodox churches and monasteries for destruction, and target Orthodox clergy for death. The Church in the Ukraine is undergoing worse persecution that than handed out by the Reds… so-called “Christians” are carrying it out! Note the silence of our hierarchy… the silence of our official Church… the traitorous mixing with Uniates and “Ukrainian Orthodox”. The dead of Novorossiya will accuse these bastards on the Last Day… it’s rather too much of a muchness, isn’t it? It’s “1612” and they go off to schmooze with Uniates and other enemies of the Church. None dare call it evil…
St Germogen the Confessor or Iosafat the Apostate… which do YOU venerate? That IS the choice…
