You’re frying up those latkes! I can smell ’em from here!

______________________________

Tomorrow at sundown starts the eight-day celebration of Hanukkah. It’s early this year. Congrats to all of my Jewish readers! Have a great holiday! Heat up that griddle and fry up those latkes! Save some for me…

Correction:

OOPS! I thought that Hanukkah started sundown Thursday 28 November… a Jewish Cabineteer told me it started sundown Wednesday 27 November (“We still have some latkes left…”)… God, I ain’t perfect, and this proves it. Any road, have a blessed holiday, y’all…

27 November 2013. Christians Need to Raise Their Voices…

00 Stop the Killing of Haitians. 27.11.13

______________________________

At present, there’s a razzia against Haitians in the Dominican Republic (here and here). It’s our duty as believing Christians who believe in the seamless garment to raise our voices. Firstly, to demand that the bloodshed stop. Secondly, that the USA withdraws its occupation forces from the island. You see, high-level American and UN officials coördinated a politically-motivated prosecution of ex-Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to prevent him from gaining more traction with the Haitian population and returning to Haiti. The USA and its allies poured millions of dollars into unsuccessful efforts to slander Aristide as a drug trafficker, human rights violator, and heretical practitioner of voodoo. Our hands aren’t clean… in any case, for the USA to claim that Haiti’s corrupt after we lionise such boodle champions as John Boehner and Mitch McConnell, well, I’d say that the Americans are hypocrites. They’re far more corrupt than any penny-ante Haitian pol…

There’s a small ROCOR mission in Haiti that could use a hand. Go to this website, get in touch with these guys, and ask about Project Haiti… they DO need a fin or two for the good work…

27 November 2013. A Point to Ponder… Great Minds DO Think Alike!

00 Great Minds Think Alike! 27.11.13

______________________________

Let’s not be coy here… the “conservatives” in both in Orthodoxy and amongst the Catholics loudly proclaim how much “better” they are than the rest of us unwashed louts. That’s a crock of shit that reeks unto Heaven, clogging the nostrils of the Almighty. You can follow Pope Francisco and Patriarch Kirill… or you can follow Timothy Dolan and Victor Potapov. That’s your choice. You can fight for a God-pleasing social order or you can continue to watch Fox News, listen to Rush Limbaugh, vote for the likes of Willy Romney and Sarah Palin, and march in your parades. That’s all that’s on offer, kids.

Our Lord Christ didn’t become Incarnate to bless the actions of corporate thieves, executive cut-throats, and contract-wielding shylocks. He tossed their like out of the Temple! We should do likewise… starting with that loudmouthed little creep in the District who’s forever defending the rich and their depredations. Remember, the powers-that-be tacked up Our Lord and slept soundly afterwards… their analogues are amongst us today still, and some of ’em are in the Church. Have a care…
