Look at the above… it illustrates the priorities of the leftist Scottish government and the priorities of the rightwing régime in Westminster. One can see similar priorities in the USA. The rightwing rants about “pro-life”, but is pro-capital punishment, pro-war, pro-militarised police, pro-government surveillance, anti-welfare, and anti-single-payer healthcare. It wants BOMBS… not BABY BOXES. Therefore, all those who voted Republican and claim to be “Pro-Life” are liars and hypocrites of the lowest possible sort. You can’t vote for bombs and be for babies. You can’t serve both God and Mammon. Holy Writ says so. You can’t square the circle. Get with the programme and get with HH… he wants a complete social safety-net… he wants families to have guaranteed paid holidays… he wants the state to subsidise those holidays… he wants the false capitalist structure gone. You may have HH or you may have the loudmouths amongst us who voted for Republican greedsters. That be the only choice… the only real choice facing Orthodox in the diaspora. Do we follow the Pro-Life phonies to death (both spiritual and physical) or do we follow our own leaders, who tell us that the only way out is to end the present evil politico-economic order?
Here’s the most telling part… the West’s rightwingers scream about how their countries are “under threat”. There’s no such situation, the USA hasn’t been safer in generations. The US Navy (along with its Anglosphere and Japanese allies) rules the waves and shall for the foreseeable future (it takes at least two generations to really build up a fleet, after all). Ergo, the American heartland is safe from foreign conventional invasion of any sort. The US Army and US Air Force aren’t as powerful (nor are they as powerful as their major possible adversaries), but they don’t need to be… they’re not the main bulwark of security as the Russian and Chinese armies are. The Anglosphere countries have always had their navies as the “senior service” unlike most Continental Eurasian countries, where the army has always been first. THERE IS NO THREAT TO THE USA AT ALL. Ergo, the Republican bleats to the contrary aren’t only lies, they’re mendacious and told in full knowledge that they’re untruths. Therefore… Pro-Lifers boost Republicans… Republicans are unrepentant liars… the Devil is the Father of Lies… you can see where this is going. The Pro-Life Movement is many things, but in its alliance with the Republicans, it certainly is NOT a godly force in our country.
This is what our Church teaches… the Republicans (and their Pro-Life toadies) spit on it… do note the callous and spiteful blasphemy spouted by Boehner…
Choose wisely… your immortal soul IS at stake…
