1 May 2016. Christians Build BRIDGES… Not WALLS!

00 Loud Ostrich. 29.11.12

______________________________

A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, isn’t Christian. This isn’t the gospel.

Francisco Bergoglio

Archbishop and Pope of Rome and Patriarch of the West

Look at who builds bridges and who builds walls… the first are secure in themselves and unafraid of meeting the Other… the latter are loud-clashing phonies scared and terrified of having to treat the Other as equal human beings… you see, God told them to hate all “sinners”, dontcha know. Always mistrust those who say, “I only speak the truth in love”… what they speak isn’t truthful nor is there any love in it. Do attend to what the Apostle said on love… the “Speak the Truth in Love” lot missed the bus, I’m afraid.

Bite the coin… there be some flagrant counterfeits in circulation…

1 May 2016. A Weighty Thing to Consider on this Easter Sunday

______________________________

When shall we have the courage to outgrow the charity mentality and see that at the bottom of all relations between rich and poor there’s a problem of justice?

Dom Hélder Pessoa Câmara

Archbishop of Olinda and Recife (Brazil)

I’m not a theologian, or an expert on the Bible, or a Catholic. I’m just a US Senator from the small state of Vermont. I’m far from being a perfect human being, but I’m motivated by a vision that exists in all the great religions… Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and others… so beautifully and clearly stated in Matthew 7.12, “So in everything, do to others what you would have them to do to you”. The Golden Rule… do to others what you’d have them do to you… not very complicated.

Bernie Sanders

Pope Francisco Bergoglio is a “democratic liberal”. He believes that the Free Market is a fraud… as does our Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev. Cardinal Bernardin spoke of a seamless garment… that means that pro-lifers MUST be anti-death penalty, pro-social safety net, pro-single-payer, and anti-warmongering, or they’re hypocrites. The good cardinal was RIGHT… just look at contemporary “pro-lifers”… their kowtowing to the worst elements of the Republican Party makes them unspeakable horrors. They’re not “pro-life” at all… they’re anti-life in the deepest meaning of the term.

Here’s the irony this year… if you want to uphold Christian morals and ethics, you must vote for a Jewish secularist who speaks in favour of “pro-choice”… this one bad element DOESN’T spoil the pot. There are no pure options on this side of the veil. NONE. Therefore, you must weigh out the options… in this instance, the Republican Anti-Life Programme has only one good point (anti-abortion), whilst the rest is Warmongering Oligarch Rubbish. Bernie’s Pro-Life Programme has one bad spot (pro-choice)… you don’t throw away an apple with a bad spot, you cut out the spot and eat it with thanks.

Bear this in mind… a wise monastic told me years ago, “Satan baits his traps with objectively good things”. That’s how the Evil One uses the anti-abortion plank in the Republican programme… Satan puts one good thing in the midst of demonic evil… the superficial and unintelligent lot eats it up by the gross. Orthodox people… do note that the konvertsy just gobble it all down. It speaks volumes of them and their intelligence. Don’t frequent their websites nor engage them in useless polemic… it won’t do any good at all… in fact, it’d do much harm… for it’d hammer in the heterodox errors that they espouse, and it’d anger and frustrate you for no good purpose.

Here’s the interesting contradiction this year… if you wish to follow Christ to the fullest, you must vote for a secularist Jew… fancy that…
