Check This Out: Bart Sticks Foot in Mouth on CBS “60 Minutes”

Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias (1946- ), the actual First-Amongst-Equals in the Orthodox world. Over half of the entire oikumene lies under his omofor. Here, he is meeting with officers of the RVSN, the Military Strategic Rocket Directorate.

Editor’s Foreword:

The link below appears to be broken for some reason. Tim Connelly sent me another link, not the same, but, it contains much of the same information. Bart is smokin’ some ass-kickin’ weed. Note well how he is sucking up to the USA. That’s not nice… and KMG is gonna notice. There is quite some difference between 10,000 faithful (Bart) and 140 million (KMG). Bart only lives on Moscow’s sufferance. Here’s the alternative link:




Firstly, I would like  for you to click on the following link:


Can you believe this utter rot and drivel? Bart is the head of 300 million Orthodox Christians (his actual jurisdiction only extends over less than 10,000)? I do dare say that KMG would have something to say about that! Bart came off as being on drugs… however, something tells me that it is not completely his fault. You can’t trust many secularist journalists… they have an agenda and it is not in our favour, folks (that includes Sophia Kishkovsky, yes, she’s you-know-who’s daughter… she obsequiously sits in the secularist “amen corner”).

The Patriarch of New Rome was First-Amongst-Equals only because Constantinople was the place where the Christian Emperor resided. Today, the role of the Christian Emperor is not vacant, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin fills that role. Ask the fathers at the Great Lavra on the Mountain! They came out enthusiastically when he visited the Mountain a few years ago. Who’s the actual First-Amongst-Equals? It’s Kirill Mikhailovich Gundyaev, the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia. Kirill is a robust and intelligent 300-pound  (all muscle) Varengoi warrior wielding a sharpened war-axe; Bart is a skinny 90-pound weakling with water on the brain armed with a flit-gun.

God willing, this shall be forgotten in a week or two. However, it takes some time to put these things together. All the Orthodox in this country were caught flat-footed (including the always-clueless OCA). THAT speaks volumes concerning some of our “leadership”, does it not?

I give many thanks to the anonymous correspondent who brought this to my attention. I’m only as good as the information I receive!

Almost Every Fifth Woman Refuses to Abort Her Child after Talking With a Psychologist

Aleksandra Yelyutina, a volunteer in the Святость Материнства (Sanctity of Motherhood) programme in Russia. These are the people who get things done… not the gasbags who bloviate in seminary and university lecture halls.

Natalia Yakunina, the head of the board of trustees of Святость Материнства (Svyatost Maternistva: The Sanctity of Motherhood), a programme of the Centre of the National Glory of Russia, pointed up that experience shows us that about a fifth of women seeking abortion reject the procedure after consulting a psychologist. “For example, in Krasnoyarsk, where we started our programme, 18 percent of women who came to our sessions changed their decision in favour of giving birth to their child”, Ms Yakunina said in Moscow at the annual meeting of the Board of Trustees of the Centre of the National Glory of Russia and the St  Andrew the First-Called Foundation. At present, she told the audience, her programme operates in Vologda, Ulyanovsk, Belgorod, and Penza, in addition to Krasnoyarsk, and plans exist to extend it to Saransk, Rostov-on-Don, Khabarovsk, and other regions. In the near future, the Centre plans to present the results of this project to the Ministry of Health of Russia. On his part, Andrei Kochenov, the head of the Krasnoyarsk branch of the Centre, told the meeting that, in recent years, about 700 members of the Russian regional mass media signed the proposal circulated by the organisers of The Sanctity of Motherhood on the formation of family values.

As was announced at a meeting of the Board of Trustees last year, the Foundation and the Centre continued to implement the traditional programmes, such as bringing the Holy Fire to Moscow at Easter, pilgrimages to the holy places, bringing the relics of saints all over Russia and abroad, etc. Both organizations plan to continue these programmes, along with new ones, in the coming year. In particular, they will bring the relics of St Aleksandr Nevsky to Serbia and to a number of places in Russia, and, earlier this year, a new school opened in Tskhinvali in South Ossetia, built with funds provided by the benefactors of the Centre. In his greetings to the St Andrew the First-Called Foundation and the Centre of the National Glory of Russia, which were read at the meeting, Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias noted the contribution of these organisations in the strengthening of moral principles and Christian education, the consolidation of society, the construction and reconstruction of churches, and financing public church activities.
