1 May 2016. Victory Day is On Its Way… Some of the Victors are Still with Us!

Some of the VOV vets are still here with us, albeit elderly. Here’s VOV Vet Pavel Filatovich Abryutin (he’s wearing a railwayman’s uniform) with his wife Feofaniya Spiridonovna Abryutina (retired worker/rear-area toiler during the VOV)… their marriage lasted for 67 years, so far.

Thank you, Grandpa for the Victory!

Thank all the vets of the Anti-Hitler Coalition… some are still left in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the UK, and France. They all put down the fascist beast. It’s not their fault that Truman betrayed the Victory at the behest of Churchill… they put the fascist beast down. The vets beat the fascists… Truman allied the West with them. Nasty piece of work, wasn’t he?

Give honour to the victors… they won’t be with us much longer. We owe so much to them…

They all faces… they all had names

No one is forgotten… nothing is forgotten

Last night we kept holy vigil in the darkened church… then… HE CAME! Remember, this season is the centre of the Christian Year for a reason. If Christ be not risen from the dead, your faith is in vain… I testify that it isn’t…

Христосъ воскресе!

Воистинну воскресе!

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…
