Sarah or Zoya: Whom do YOU Emulate?

“Tanya”: Zoya Kosmodemyanskaya’s Feat

Kukryniksy

1942

______________________________

I have a sad fact to relate to you… a friend informed me that John Whiteford has a link to an extremist website 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 equal to Christianity, when they’re not. The Pentecostalists aren’t only the sworn enemies of the Church, they attack all other Christians as well, trying to convert them to their delusional 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’m 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 tried to discredit her heroism in the 90s, but the records all came out… they vindicated the account given by the KPSS, 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… 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?

Jonas the Hypocrite to March in Washington

Read this:

http://www.oca.org/news/2347

Shall JP tell his confrères about his unstinting and total support for Bobby Kondratick, Feodosy Lazor, Isidore Brittain, Benjamin Peterson, and Serapahim Storheim? He won’t… ergo, this is a cheap and worthless gesture. He smiles at sodomites such as Feodosy and Isidiore… he smiles at the coverup of sexual misdeeds at his favourite seminary… he smiles upon thieves and coverup artists such as Tosi, Erickson, and Kondratick. In short, I’d say to Archbishop Seán Patrick O’Malley… “Refuse to march with this disgusting enabler, sir… it’ll rub off on you. He shields sodomites and abusers, he refused to investigate paedophilia in his Church, only acting when the court forced his hand”.

The present “gesture” is aimed at the konvertsy… they’re NOT pro-life, they’re anti-abortion, a horse of a FAR different colour (just as they are oligarch-loving neoliberals, in direct defiance of the REAL leaders of the Church). Paffhausen is calling out all the converts to defend him at all costs… Stokoe is putting out the line that if converts don’t defend Paffhausen, we nasty ol’ ethnics will “take over the Church” (it’s not stated explicitly, but it’s the implicit message on ocanews.org, especially in the comboxes).

This is reprehensible. The sooner this noisome little soap opera is over, the better, but it shan’t be pleasant in the meantime. Paffhausen is a Nikon of Yekaterinburg… he deserves the same treatment. That is, The Church should defrock him, and send him to a far monastery (preferably in Russia) to work his repentance, far away from the public.

Isn’t it ironic? All the Episkie konvertsy left the TEC supposedly because of homosexual clergy in high places, and how the TEC hierarchy covered up for them. Congratulations! You’ve got the same thing, now, only it’s WORSE… you’re expected to cover up for naughty doings… and claim that you LOVE those who engage in it. Note well that they do so… without any compunction whatsoever. It speaks volumes on their real character… they will defend ANYONE who gives them power, no matter what personal filthiness they engage in.

God DOES have a sense of justice. It takes some time… but God’s Justice does prevail. Most of the Episkie konvertsy didn’t come to us because they loved Orthodoxy… they came to us because they lost a fight for control of the TEC… they never had an Orthodox bone in their bodies in the first place. Just look at Reardon… his writing is that of a typical 1950s Anglican Evangelical… there’s nothing Orthodox about it at all.

They’re going to leave us… it can’t be soon enough, frankly speaking… but we’re in for some “interesting days” before the nappy-wearing konvertsy stamp off to form their “pure” conventicle.  God DO keep us all until then…
