29 May 2016. Does Orthodoxy Bless Capitalism?

00 fidel castro and patr kirill

HH with one of his old-time bosom pals… Comrade Fidel! HH doesn’t hang out with godless rightwing trash like Rush Limbaugh, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Rod Dreher, Chilly Hilly, or Butcher Biden… he hangs out with Comrade Fidel and wants the world to know it!

I saw this on FB:

Supporting worker co-ops? Clearly, the IOCC isn’t seeking ideological approval from the Acton Institute. The natural economic inclinations of Orthodoxy are distributist, agrarian, and communitarian. The idea that Free-Market Neoliberal Capitalism is natural to Orthodoxy is so absurd as to barely be worth correcting. Almost as absurd as the fact that one keeps having to, over, and over, and over… it’s unnatural and bad news… you don’t need to be Orthodox to see its folly. Then again, a farce can fool anyone.

Orthodoxy has always upheld the regulatory function of the state as it believes that mankind isn’t only fallen, but quite unable to right that state on its own. The Church has NEVER held the view that the state should only have a limited role, as that assumes mankind’s perfectibility, which is an utter and brazen heresy. In short, Orthodoxy CONDEMNS everything held by the contemporary western “conservative” faction… a godless, mercenary, and self-centred creed, if there ever was such. The konvertsy such as Dreher and Whiteford lie… they all lie… they’ve made up a fabulous and pernicious “religious” fable to go along with their perverted political fancies… oh… they ARE against abortion and homosexuality… they believe that makes them “moral”. I think that their conceit is mistaken… I’m not alone in thinking that way…
