10 January 2014. Western Media’s Latest Potyomkin Village… “Russia’s Church Urges Gay Sex Ban Referendum”… Plus, an Excursus into what the Church REALLY is

Explosive headline, wot? Well, it’s much less than it seems on the surface. The zapadniki fucked up again, kids. Click here to read the article. Supposedly, Vsevolod Anatolyevich said that we need a gay ban. Well, I checked the Russian media. There was NOTHING on RIA-Novosti. There was NOTHING on Voice of Russia. There was this on RT. All three are state outlets… I wanted to see what the “official” take on it was. The reference for what the RF Gosduma actually said in reply is here. To make this a short submission, the UK (Criminal Code) isn’t going to be changed.

Oh, what did the Church say on this? NOTHING. NADA. NICHEVO. I checked patriarchia.ru… click here to see the head story. Guess who co-sponsored the Yolka with HH? The Moscow Profsoyuz (Trade Unions Federation)! They team up every year, in fact. HH doesn’t suck up to the likes of Darrell Issa, Justin Amash, Willy Romney, Rush Limbaugh, and Sarah Palin. He stands tall for the LEFT! You’ve seen the images on this site. I don’t need to post them again. HH CHOOSES to hew left… he disagrees with every political whimsy held by certain well-known people. After all, didn’t he just give a high church decoration to Iosif Davydovich Kobzon? The Church also honoured Dr Leonid Roshal in the past. What this means is that the Church isn’t going to push for any gay ban in any real way (nor is it going to bless Hard Right lunacy, either).

If I have to choose between the Left and the Right, I choose the Left because it hurts the least number of people. After all, it was the Bushies, not the Obama administration, who tortured people at black sites. That’s why I oppose people who like to use ad hominem tactics… cruelty’s not my thing. I don’t pry into certain people’s private affairs… word does get around about certain blogposts (as a Christian, I’m required to show a certain restraint when attacked).

In short, the Church shows oikonomia towards most gays… that’s the way it is. The Church doesn’t “crusade”… the papists and their illegitimate Proddie offspring do that. We don’t do that. What DO we do? St Serafim Sarovsky said it best:

Save your own soul and thousands will be saved about you.

We should emulate St Serafim Vyritsky, who prayed on a rock during the VOV for the victory of the Red Army… not certain priests who urge us to support those whose ravening greed is anti-Christian to the bone.

Be good all… I couldn’t be more specific as to my interlocutor. I don’t fling personal poo. I know that this world can be crank… but sometimes…
