Here’s What Whiteford and Nelson Approve… It’s NOT “Blessed are the Poor”, Is It?

The Sermon of the Beatitudes

James Jacques Joseph Tissot

1896

You can have the Lord Christ or you can have the Tea Party… you can’t have both… God or the Dollar? What shall it be?

______________________________

And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God. Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh. Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Rejoice ye in that day, and leap for joy: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.

But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation. Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep. Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.

Beatitudes of the Sermon on the Plain

Luke 6.20-26

Let’s keep this short… the Tea Party approves of this massive redistribution of wealth to the oligarchs… full stop. The richest 1 percent of the population held 9 percent of the wealth in 1980… they hold 24 percent today. Where did this money come from? It was stolen from working and middle class families through such things as lower wages and cutting of benefits (15 percent of the population isn’t covered by health insurance due to the greed of the rich).

John Whiteford and Anthony Nelson claim to be priests of the Orthodox Church, yet they support a movement whose ideology is deeply anti-Christian and against the very teachings of the Lord Christ Himself. Just because the teabaggers are anti-abortion doesn’t mean that they’re pro-life. The Tea Party is nothing but an apologia for the rape of everything that’s intrinsically good by the richest segment of the population. It’s throwing your kids into the fires of Moloch’s temple, full stop.

The Tea Party says:

It’s a great time to be rich!

Our Lord Christ says:

But woe unto you that are rich!

I seem to notice that these two positions are mutually contradictory and exclusive of one another. You can hold one or you can hold the other, but you cannot mix the two, they’re fire and water… I have made my choice. I stand for Christ and His Truth without reserve… I reject the ideology of the Tea Party/GOP utterly and completely as it goes against and contradicts His Truth. I should mention that His Holiness rejects the Tea Party’s Mammon worship too. Where do you stand?

A Photo Essay. The Chusovskoy Steel Works… Still Runnin’ After all these Years… No Tea Party in Russia, Thank God!

Unlike its counterparts in the USA, which have been boarded up by money-grubbing oligarchs seeking extortionate profits using Third World operations, the Chusovskoy Works is still humming and its furnaces are still bright. It’s one of the reasons why Russia weathered the depression better than the USA did. The Russian leadership doesn’t send its industries abroad… it sees them as national assets. They’re right and the Tea Party lucre lovers are wrong.

Look at all our shuttered plants here in the USA and realise why our economy is so sick… the jobs were sucked abroad, and the plutocrats REFUSE to invest here. They even have the gall to have their media shills shout that American jobs aren’t coming back.

There’s a way to fix that… all we have to do is to imprison a few of these self-serving pigs the way VVP snagged Khodorkovsky… you’d see some changes tout suite!

“This land is my land”… it’s not “private property”… think on that.

20 US States Declare for Atheism: Attempt made by Republicans to Perpetuate HMO Death Panels Instead of a Proper Single-Payer Health Plan

Filed under: health care/social issues,politics,USA — 01varvara @ 00.00

Here’s the true face of the Tea Party… the true face of Sectarianism… the true face of the “Free” Market… the true face of Globalisation… and the true face of the “Conservatism”… yes, sir, it’s the face of Ol’ Scratch. All Orthodox who support the GOP should be ashamed of supporting such evil. After all, didn’t Newt Gingrich serve divorce papers on his wife when she was deathly ill with cancer? Great moralism, huh?

Firstly, this means that thirty states SUPPORT single-payer health care and oppose the HMO death panels preferred by the GOP… that’s 60 percent of the total. It’s generally not well-known, but the loudmouth Republican states are also those that receive MORE money back from the feds than they pay in taxes. For instance, New York and Massachusetts only get back about 80 percent of what they pay in taxes. Who benefits from the fed’s largess? Why, it’s loudmouth Republican states like Texas, Utah, and Mississippi! They suck on the federal tit more than anyone else does, they get back more than they pay in, and, then, they have the goddamned gall to proclaim that the federal government is bloated and out of control! If these states lost their subsidies from New York, Massachusetts, Illinois, and California, they’d collapse into irrelevance.

It’s ironic isn’t it? The loudmouth teabaggers can only exist on subsidies from the so-called nasty “liberals”… that’s because they don’t have a positive programme, all that they have is a licentious and obscene plan of destruction. You see, according to them, all that we have to do to have an ideal society is to “deregulate” everything and be “business-friendly”. Don’t forget… Enron, WorldCom, and Silverado all came from “business-friendly” GOP states. How many thousands of people had their savings destroyed? That doesn’t matter to the baggers! It’s just the “invisible hand of the market”. It doesn’t matter that Neil Bush and Kenneth Lay escaped justice… that’s too bad.

It’s time to stand tall for the weakest amongst us and expose the Republican scummers as the atheist money-worshippers that they are. I don’t care how often Pat Robertson or Franklin Graham lisp their “prayers”… it doesn’t change the basic reality that they’re not Christians… they’re Sectarians who bow low in front of Almighty Mammon, and we forget that at our peril.

I can also say this… if you see someone on the ‘net (either on a forum or on a blog) claiming that the Tea Party is consonant with Orthodox teaching, they’re chock fulla beans and spouting absolute pure 100 percent hooey. It’s baloney from stem to stern… His Holiness has made it clear that socialism is in line with the Church’s teachings (unlike what you hear from John Whiteford, Anthony Nelson, Jonas Paffhausen, and Terrence Mattingly). The Church does NOT condemn social democracy, and all those in the Church who attack it have to get their minds right. In particular, the Tea Party effort to attack health care reform is evil… they defend HMOs who drop people because they contract a serious illness… that’s what happened to Georgie Ann Geyer. They defend HMOs refusing to pay for operations… like the HMO that told a relative of a friend of mine that they wouldn’t pay for an operation to correct two holes in their heart unless they got a stroke.

It’s simple… the Tea Party/GOP/neocons worship money, full stop. If you support the GOP, you spit on Christ and His Church, and you spit on such archpastors as His Holiness Patriarch Kirill, His Holiness Patriarch Bartholomew, and His Holiness Patriarch Irinej… all of whom who have spoke in favour of “health care justice”. If Messrs Whiteford and Nelson continue to support the satanic HMOs and their obscene profits… expect to see me on the other side of the barricades, doing my best to defeat their cause.

For too long, the “conservative” scummers have seized the tiller of the Church here in the USA… it’s time to take it back! After all… Our Lord Christ wasn’t a plutocrat! Didn’t He expel the merchants from the temple with a cat o’ nine tails? I seem to recall that He said, “You have turned my Father’s House into a den of thieves!” The clerical bureaucrats should take note of that, no? I also seem to recall that He was tacked up to a cross to die a painful death for upsetting the “respectable” of this world, wasn’t He?

Supreme Court Commutes the Sentence of a Mother that Killed a Paedophile who Abused Her Daughter

Filed under: legal,moral issues,politics,Russian — 01varvara @ 00.00

Elvina Tsogoeva is greeted by her family and friends after her return home after her release from the penal colony…

______________________________

A woman from North Ossetia, Elvina Tsogoeva, who killed her neighbour for abusing her young daughters, was released from prison. A court sentenced her to 8 years in prison, but the Supreme Court commuted her sentence. Her nearest-and-dearest gathered to welcome Elvina home. It was a two-hour journey from the women’s penal colony in Kabardino-Balkaria, where she served her sentence, to her home; it seemed to drag on endlessly. Then, finally, the long-awaited meeting came, and her friends and neighbors came to share the family’s joy. Many can’t believe that this dramatic story is over. Elvina’s barrister is sure that justice was done, albeit with some delay.

Elvina Tsogoeva was convicted of the premeditated murder her neighbour, who abused her three-year daughter. After she killed him, the woman confessed to the cops voluntarily. The Court of Prigorodny Raion of North Ossetia sentenced her to eight years imprisonment. Later, the Supreme Court reduced her sentence to only three years behind bars, and Elvina was released six months earlier than that. All the time she was in prison, Elvina had the support of hundreds of people from all over the North Caucasus. This support helped her to cope until her release. Elvina Tsogoeva is again alongside her children. She hoped that the trials that befell her family are over. The main thing now is to catch up after the long months of separation, and to restore the warmth in her home.

Editor’s Note:

Justice WAS served in Russia… people understood why she iced the bastard. God almighty, that was TWISTED… abusing a three-year-old! You really can’t get lower than that. She did 2½ years of Russian “hard time”… that’s to teach her that society realises that what the perv did was WRONG… but to just go out and blow away the wretched creepozoid wasn’t probably the brightest way of dealing with it… that was WRONG too. I wonder how Lebedeff and Paffhausen would have handled it if a pissed-off parent had offed Storheim or Podmoshensky… probably much bootless talk of “forgive and forget”… that would have been a real tits-up, wouldn’t it?
