They’re from the REAL Cossack lands in the Kuban… they’re not Galician Uniate phonies taking over a culture that isn’t theirs (ALL real Cossacks HATE the Unia and will have nothing to do with it or those who belong to it)… they’re the real deal, as their performances prove. Enjoy!

23 August 2014. There IS a Holy Rus… and It Spreads Over Belarus, Russia, and the Ukraine

00 Belarus. priest blessing soldiers. 23.08.14

______________________________

These are Belarusian soldiers being blessed by an Orthodox priest. There IS a Holy Rus… it does include Russia, Belarus, and the Ukraine at a minimum. Holy Rus wants to live in peace with all other peoples of good will. Of course, that means that Holy Rus, by definition, must come into conflict with International Capital… which doesn’t live in good will towards others… the only things that it believes in are “might makes right”, “winning is the only thing”, and “money makes the world go around”. Slobberin’ Ronnie Reagan and Haggy Maggie Thatcher brought in this era, this New Dark Age. Is it on the way out? I’d hope so…

Support Holy Rus… oppose International Capital… that’s how you honor God and His Church… ’nuff said.

22 August 2014. Shevchuk Unrepentant Sack o’ Shit… REFUSES to Repent for Uniate Murders and Church Burnings in Novorossiya… Cites Non-Existent “Persecution” of Uniates in the Crimea and Novorossiya

00 Pope Francisco meets the Orthodox Grumpy Cat. 08.11.13

I have never seen such a document that was more crowded with infamous falsehood and distortion. Scoundrels and piss-ants.

Cordell Hull

(1871-1955)

US Secretary of State (1933-44)

******

I just read the most bizarre, surreal, Kafkaesque, and evasive pack o’ lies that I’ve ever read in my days, and I’m 60-years-old. I kid you not. I feel like Cordell Hull facing Ambassador Nomura in 1941. S Yu Shevchuk is a lying sack o’ shit and the Roman Curia is backing him to the max. Firstly, YOU MUST READ THIS. READ IT!

READ IT TWICE!

I’M NOT JOKING. THIS is what the Uniate swine believe. THIS is what the Roman Curia supports. However… DO NOT TAKE IT OUT ON THE RCs DOWN THE STREET! DON’T! They didn’t have anything to do with this lying shit. Shevchuk REFUSES to repent for the Dom Profsoyuzov fire! Shevchuk REFUSES to repent for the murders of Orthodox clergy in Novorossiya! Shevchuk REFUSES to repent for the anti-people pro-greedster policies of the fascist junta! Shevchuk BLESSES the junta for smashing its heel full-force into the faces of working people and pensioners (he BLESSES the combination of pension cuts coupled with rises in food prices). He cackles maniacally as the junta deliberately targets civilians and deliberately targets Orthodox churches!

This is satanic shit… full stop. If you support the junta, you support Satan. If you support Shevchuk’s lies, you support Satan. It’s quite that simple. The UGKTs has been an evil golem since its formation in 1596 at the Unia of Brest. It’s now time to separate the sheep from the goats. We have to disown Victor Potapov for being a loyal Step n’ Fetchit house nigger of the CIA. We have to disown Jonas Paffhausen for being the fawning running dog of enemies of the Church like George Weigel. We have to disown Vassa Larina for her subservience to Bob Taft, a Jesuit poseur, and her open kowtowing to the Catholics. We need to disown Alexander Webster for being an apologist for the neocon drive for world hegemony. We need to disown Rod Dreher for his cheerleading of neoliberal economics and anti-people “conservative” politics. We need to disown Freddy M-G for her indifferentist pro-Uniate attitude.

This is wild shit. It’s truly, truly surreal. Here are your choices:

  • You can stand with HH and the canonical Church… you can stand for Our Lord Christ and the Truth
  • You can stand with S Yu Shevchuk and F A Denisenko… you can stand for Satan and Diabolic Falsehood

There are NO other choices… choose well. I gotta walk away from this one. I will say this in closing… the Uniate enormities in Novorossiya are going to lead to “revengers” rising up to avenge the blood of the innocent victims. As a Christian, I don’t like seeing it, I don’t like reporting it, and I certainly don’t like what’s about to happen. However, as a conscientious reporter, I’m going to tell you “what’s out there”. Pass me the jug, Shevchuk’s lies are too much of a muchness. I can see why war correspondents drink…

I wrote this earlier… I stand by it:

We must be like the fighters of the VOV. “Don’t cry, baba… we’ll make them pay for this!” Forgive… yes, a thousand times, yes! I forgive the Uniates, schismatics, and nationalists for what they’ve done; I hope that God shows them mercy in the hereafter. However… forgiveness doesn’t cancel out earthly consequences for earthly crimes. I’d put the noose around the necks of S Yu Shevchuk, A P Yatsenyuk, F A Denisenko, and P A Poroshenko, and I’d trip the trap with no emotion. Nevertheless… the solution, although necessary, isn’t good in itself, and I’d have to confess it. A greater evil doesn’t cancel out the sin of a lesser evil. It merely underlines necessity; it DOESN’T exculpate it. We live in a fallen world. It’s especially fallen now. It’s a time of moral dilemmas and temptations to unbounded hate and violence… God do help us…

Никто не забыт и ничто не забыто… No one is forgotten, nothing is forgotten.

Keep it focused…

Mother Cathedral

00 St Michael Cathedral. Sitka AK. 19.08.14

______________________________

St Michael Cathedral is a great example of Old Russian church architecture. The greatest Orthodox Missionary in Alaska, Bishop Innokenty Veniaminov, designed it. He came to Sitka in 1834, returned to Russia in 1838, and became a bishop in 1840. He was the first Bishop of Alaska, and upon his return to Sitka in 1841, he began planning the construction of the cathedral. Bishop Innokenty laid the cornerstone in 1844 and hired carpenters and craftsmen to build it. The building used spruce logs with an outer layer of clapboard, and sailcloth covered the ceilings and walls for insulation and acoustics. The history of St Michael Cathedral began when a ship carrying the St Michael icon sank, along with all its valuable cargo, 30 miles short of its destination. Thirty days after the Neva sank, the undamaged crate carrying the icon washed ashore at Sitka and local residents found it On 20 November 1848, Bishop Innokenty consecrated St Michael the Archangel Russian Orthodox Cathedral. The building is laid out in the form of a cross, with three altars dedicated from left to right to the Mother of God “of Sitka”, St Michael the Archangel, and St Innokenty.

Bishop Innokenty learned how to speak the Tlingit language, and the Tlingits loved him, as he went all-out to understand their way of life and spiritual needs. He provided them with medicine and vaccines. Today, 90 percent of the cathedral congregation is Tlingit, as well as other native groups. The music in the liturgy is sung a capella (unaccompanied voice) in English, Slavonic, Tlingit, Aleut, and Yupik. Bishop Innokenty eventually returned to Russia and became the Metropolitan of Moscow and all the Russias. The Church canonised him a saint in 1977.

On 2 January 1966, tragedy struck the cathedral. A fire in Sitka’s business district in the middle of the night eventually spread to the church. Scores of local people rushed to the cathedral, where they formed human chains to remove most of the treasures… original artworks, icons, and religious objects, at the risk of their own lives. Unfortunately, the fire destroyed the structure, the clock built by Bishop Innokenty, Bishop Innokenty’s library, and bells. The Icon of the Last Supper above the Royal Doors in the main altar also perished in the blaze. Immediately after this tragedy, concerned citizens made plans to rebuild the cathedral in its original form, beauty, size, and style. They formed the Sitka Historical Restoration Committee, including many prominent citizens. It took 10 years to rebuild due to the difficult conditions peculiar to Alaska. The original plans were extant and they used them in the reconstruction. The replacement was completed and consecrated on 21 November 1976. The generous support of thousands of people in Sitka, throughout Alaska, and Lower 48 states made all of it possible.

The National Parks Service designated St Michael Cathedral a National Historical Monument and the OCA Holy Synod of Bishops named it an architectural and historical monument. To this day, its clergy serve a full cycle of liturgical services to accommodate the needs of Orthodox believers in Sitka, and it’s the “Mother Cathedral” of the Orthodox Church in America.
