19 July 2016. Here’s the Republican Party… Hatred on Parade

Also look at this… add these three things up… ignorance, racial bias, and gun nuttery. It’s clear that no Christian can have anything to do with such a political faction. True, the Dems are little better… this year, the Dems match the Repugs in greed and cupidity. Whites contributed more to world civilisation than anyone else did? Firstly, “whites” in this case means “Western European Protestants”; more specifically, “English-speaking Protestants”. I’d say that such people didn’t contribute much to world culture… they didn’t create as much as the Chinese or Japanese did… they didn’t create as much as the Greeks and Russians did… they didn’t create as much as the Arabs and Persians did. These spoilt brats truly believe that the USA, which has only been around since 1776, is the “Indispensable Nation”. What ignorance and hubris! Where was “Indispensable America” when St Vladimir embraced Christianity in 988? Answer that question and you’ll see how vacuous, ignorant, and asinine the American neoliberals (both “conservative” and “liberal”) are.

No Christian can vote for Trump the Chump… no Christian can vote for Chilly Hilly, as she echoes his views (albeit, using “liberal” verbiage). Christians should vote for Jill Stein, as her social ethos matches that of the Church (save for disagreement on abortion)… there are no perfect options on offer. Get with the programme…

19 July 2016. Fourth Acquittal in Freddie Gray Case

00 Zimmerman. cartoon stand your ground silence. 16.07.13

______________________________

I saw this on FB:

Again, there’s a desperate need for an INDEPENDENT investigator/prosecutor. We need someone who has NO connections to the police or law enforcement, someone to undertake an INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION, let the chips fall where they will. As for this case and others… a white cop shoots black man/woman and they say, “You’re free to go, our apologies for your inconvenience, Officer. The taxpayers will pick up the tab for your defence. Have a nice day, Officer. We’re so sorry for your inconvenience!”

Paul Miller

The cops walk free… all the time. Zimmerman walked free… after illegally carrying (and using) a weapon on Neighbourhood Watch. Now, tell me that there’s no racism in the USA…

19 July 2016. A Thing of Beauty and Grace

00 Byodo-In Temple, Oahu, Hawaii. 180716

Byodo-In Temple in O’ahu (Valley of the Temples)

2010s

Real Orthodox Christians live in peace with all others of good will. Full stop. Truly, the hate spewed by Anglo konvertsy on the web has to stop…

____________________________________

The Byodo-In Temple is at the foot of the Ko’olau Mountains in Valley of the Temples Memorial Park. It opened 7 June 1968, to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to Hawaii. The Byodo-In Temple in O’ahu is a small-scale replica of the over 950-year-old Byodo-In Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Uji, Japan. The Byodo-In Temple is a non-denominational Buddhist shrine, which welcomes all people to worship, meditate, or simply appreciate its beauty. It isn’t a functioning temple in the proper sense; it doesn’t host a resident monastic community or an active congregation. Hawaiians and Japanese visitors often use the temple grounds for wedding and other family events.

I’ve visited religious sites of other faiths many times. I’ve never made a rumpus nor tried to proselytise anyone. I’m a Christian… that’s what we do. We respect others for what they are. I apologise for the unfounded, hateful, and unreasonable posts by “Orthodox” konvertsy on the web. It’s just too much of a muchness…
