24 October 2014. Something to Think About… Shouldn’t We Be One?

00 OCA family. 19.05.14

______________________________

Here is a picture of one of our Russian Orthodox clergy families. I really think that we Russian Orthodox people here in the English-speaking diaspora have to have a serious discussion about Church Unity. Before we can reach out to anyone else, we have to solve our own internal disunity and intramural problems first. There’s no such thing as “American Orthodox”, and you don’t have to be “Russian” to be “Russian Orthodox”. We’re a social and sociological whole… we should unite, the way the Antiochians did.

Let’s start the discussion… that’s the first step on the road, isn’t it? That they may be as one… that’s what Our Lord Christ wanted… and the best way to start it is to unite all the Russian Orthodox first. That’s my thought, any road…

21 October 2014. Why Hungary? RT Video on Rusin Identity

00.01 Carpatho-Russia coat of arms

______________________________

Why Hungary? For one, Magyar is sufficiently different from Rusin to ensure survival of the language. Secondly, the Rusins were under the Kingdom of Hungary prior to 1914. Thirdly, and most importantly, the Magyars aren’t bent on destroying the Rusin people as the Galician Uniate fascists are. Galician Uniate “Consciousness” is a racist ideology very similar to Nazism. “The Ukraine for Ukrainians only!” “Knife the Moskals!” That’s why many Rusins are looking towards Hungary. That’s what I see, any road…

It’s been 1,000 years… a full millennium… since the Baptism of Right-Believing King St Olav II Haraldsson of Norway in Rouen. He baptised and enlightened his people, stopping endemic civil strife, but he died in battle in 1030 fighting rebellious nobles. A year later, in 1031, the Church canonised him “with the agreement of the whole Norwegian people”. In his homeland, people call him “the eternal king”. He’s amongst the last of the Western European Orthodox saints and there are churches in Russia dedicated to St Olav, notably in Novgorod and in Staraya Ladoga, where he lived for several years. There’s another link with Orthodoxy and Norway… the most loyal soldiers in Constantinople New Rome were the Varangian Guard, who served from the 10th to the 14th centuries… who came from England, the Nordic countries, and Russia. Most of them fell in battle in the Fourth Crusade fighting the papist invaders. This unit lost its mostly Nordic character after that event.

Raise a glass and cheer, Norskis… it’s your day!

14 October 2014. All Russian-American People Should Oppose the So-Called “Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation”… They’re Pro-Uniate Filth Who Support the Murders and Aggression in Novorossiya

The Church does NOT bless the “Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation” or its agenda. The Church honours the podvig of the Soviet people and of the Red Army. Christ’s Church doesn’t bless traitors and collaborators.

Some of our people are taken in by a bunch of poseurs called the “Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation”. Stay away from this Russophobic pro-Uniate group. For instance, this year, some Russian-Americans took part in one of this group’s affairs in the District. I believe that these folks did so in ignorance, not knowing that they were supporting pro-Uniate haters of Holy Rus and Holy Orthodoxy. Yes… Potapov, Paffhausen, Webster, and Dreher were all mixed up in this bunch, but does that surprise you? Zbig is on the board, so is the papist Uniate-enabler George Weigel. Just these two alone should tell Russian people that this phony American front is totally against our Motherland and our Faith. For instance, on 23 August, this front put on a “Black Ribbon Day”… the main speaker was US Representative John Shimkus (R-IL),  a rabidly anti-Russian sort who supports legislation attacking our Russian Motherland, and he supported the Georgian aggressors in the 2008 South Ossetia War, and he supports the Uniate fascist junta in Kiev today. It plans to build a “Museum of Communism” on the National Mall. I’ll tell you what WON’T be in that museum… there won’t be any photos of General Dovator’s brave Cossacks who ripped apart the Fascists in daring raids behind the enemy lines… there won’t be any exhibits of the great Pioneer Camp at Artek in the Crimea… there won’t be any mention of Sputnik and Gagarin, who beat the boastful Anglos into space… there won’t be anything detailing how the Soviet state brought healthcare into remote rural areas… there will be no mention of Ossoaviakhim-1 and the saga of the icebreaker Sedov. Nope, none of that will be there. Therefore, no Russian-American can support this vile group and its projects. Again, this group supports the Uniate opponents of Christ’s Church… you should have NOTHING to do with such noxious scumbags.

Don’t wear a “black ribbon”… wear your St George ribbon with pride! “Thank you grandpa for the victory!”
