Plotnitsky sez LNR Might Get 2 Million Euros for Reconstruction of Water Supply Facilities

00 Igor Plotnitsky. Lugansk Peoples Republic. 22.03.15

______________________________

LNR Chairman of the Government I V Plotnitsky told journalists on the TV show Час Главы (Chas Glavy: An Hour with the Boss) that Germany should confirm a proposal to allocate 2 million Euros (144.11 million Roubles. 14.2 million Renminbi. 144.73 million INR. 2.23 million USD. 2.91 million CAD. 3.02 million AUD. 1.42 million UK Pounds) to repair destroyed water supply facilities in the LNR, saying, “Talks are still at a tentative stage. I’d like to think that such a respected country would keep its word. For them, 2 million Euros really isn’t a lot of money. I’d like to see a confirmation of these intentions at least.  Besides this, Germany also offered to address the topic of paying out old-age pensions to pensioners living in the Republic. However, strangely enough, talk about pensions segued into talk on the Contact Line. We said, ‘Sure, keep those paragraphs about the OSCE mission, for our citizens’ protection’. For some reason, no one agreed to the mission’s presence at these locations”.

16 August 2015. Religion in Public Schools? NO WAY… NO HOW… and I AM a Religious Believer

NO RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

NONE.

We don’t need “Evangelical” or papist rot shoved down our kids’ throats. ALL RELIGIONS OR NO RELIGION. I’d vote for “no religion”. As an Orthodox believer, I wouldn’t want our kids to think that “Evangelical” or papist notions were acceptable in the Church, when they’re not. We don’t believe in the “Bible Alone” nor do we believe that the Pope of Rome is the infallible “Head of the Church”. The state should stay out of religion and religion should stay out of the state. That’s not only good ethics, it’s the LAW. The United States of America was always a secular state… it was NEVER a religious construct, let alone a Christian one. Let’s keep it that way. That’s the safest way for us members of “minority faiths”.

16 August 2015. My Facebook Comment on the Pro-Life Movement

00 Morin. Because We're Pro-Life! 160815

______________________________

That’s why it’s a real moral dilemma. The Pro-Life Movement isn’t “Pro-Life”… it advocates none of the social justice measures that His Holiness believes integral to stopping abortion… aid for families… guaranteed holidays for families… housing support… free education for as high as you can go. They’re the worst GOP asshats… yet, they lecture those of us who won’t buy into their greedster ideology. They call themselves Orthodox Christians. I’d say that they lie.
