24 July 2016. Priests Who Use the Eucharist as a Weapon are EVIL

00 abortion priest 220716

______________________________

I saw this on FB:

This is nice… using the faith to manipulate and control the votes of the faithful. Isn’t there a canon that forbids clergy from speaking on political agendas or endorsing political candidates?

If you support Trump, you support a very-cleaned-up racist ideology. If you’re Pro-Life, it’s for life from the womb to the tomb. A vote for Trump is a vote for a man who throughout his life used women for his pleasure and financial prosperity. If you vote for Trump, you endorse a man financially irresponsible in his dealings, who put his financial burdens on society via the bankruptcy courts. In many ventures, he duped others. A vote for Trump is one that supports Pride, not a godly man’s humility. I could go on.

Honestly, both sides endorse issues that are against God’s plan. I don’t support abortion. However, it’s the law of the land, and a vote and win for Trump won’t change this law. It must go through the process needed to remove it. As we know, law doesn’t prevent mankind from sin or breaking law. If so, we wouldn’t have so many of the problems that are inherent in our human being. Sure, we can change the abortion law, but you’d better know they’d still do this deed in makeshift backrooms… resulting in millions of dead babies and women.

To all of those who are against abortion, I’d say that this is an issue changeable only through Christ and a change of heart. If you’re Pro-Life… the proof of that isn’t a quadrennial vote. The proof of having Pro-Life convictions would come in becoming a counsellor at one of the many pro-life clinics, in speaking to a teen, and sharing life with them in love. They need help like none others do. You can be physically present in events and marches. I used to do this in San Diego. Your service would show in so many ways… not just a vote.

Face it, we have many life-altering issues in our nation… the pulpit won’t push and coerce me my vote based on a single issue. Making people do things your way through guilt and false guilt by association is “cultish”; cults use such tactics to force their followers to do things. Peace.

I did some research. This Cusick is a reactionary papist and general Pro-Life Rethug fanatic. We shouldn’t chortle. I remember the Church War of the 70s and 80s… the OCA and ROCOR clergy refused people communion right-and-left; they didn’t care who it scandalised. We were evil in that, just as Cusick is evil in this. This is why I hate the Pro-Life Movement and everything that it stands for. The hypocrisy and narcissism in it is so intense that it floors one. There’s a wrong way of being right, and the Pro-Life Movement is a classic illustration of that.

7 January 2016. Some Cabinet Vox Pop and Discussion on “Pro-Life” and Other Issues

00 Nick Anderson. The TRUTH about 'Pro-Lifers'. 2014

______________________________

I’m in italics… the Cabinet is in plain type

Did you or did someone else point out that with the “Pro-Life” people, so many of them also want to cut the social programmes that make it possible for so many to live. Pre-natal Pro-life, post-natal “go to Hell”.

******

Keep in mind that traditional conservatives (defined as people who share common cultural views and want to be left alone instead of being dragged along in reforming everything) don’t know what to make of so-called “neoconservatives”, who invented the name to cash in on conservatism’s cachet. Some assume that they share values against tyranny (but as we know, they’re simply fooling people). It’s sad that neocons heavily influence both major parties.

******

Y’know… Podmo and Rose hectored Puhalo out of the ROCOR over the toll-house thing. I remember that. Do you?

Yes. There were exaggerations in both directions. Fr Seraphim Rose was too much of a Protestant literalist… the same thing on the Six Days of Creation.

******

When [Puhalo] is right, he’s right. In this analysis, he’s very right. “It seems that the diseases of Calvinism and Evangelicalism are spreading in the Orthodox Church, particularly down in America”. Now, you know why the likes of Whiteford et al despise him, he reveals the truth about them.

******

You’re absolutely right… these pro-lifers are so anti-life it defies description.

We have a choice… we must choose. I have… so have you. Shall you swallow a kopeck’s worth for XC? They’re nasty beyond words.

******

There one has it… I should say that my interlocutors were “all over the spectrum” (which is why I believe that not only is a united Russian Orthodox Church in the diaspora possible, but also highly probable). Increasingly, grounded people are ready to defend the Real Incarnated Church against the Made-Up Fictive Church of the konvertsy. However… I warn you… it won’t be a “nice” affair, and I fear it’d lead to many of the konvertsy leaving us. Yet, “a house divided against itself cannot stand”. That’s the situation today… it’s inherently unstable. How it’ll end is up to us…

6 January 2015. THIS is What Happens When You Support American “Pro-Life” Politicians

00 syrian girl 060116

______________________________

There are loud elements in our country that call themselves the “Pro-Life Movement”. Nothing could be further from the truth… they certainly are anti-abortion, but they’re also pro-death penalty, pro-war, pro-oligarch, anti-worker, anti-government, and they wrap themselves up in the red, white, n’ blue… they imply that all of us who don’t share their crackbrained rightwing fancies are bad Christians and on the hellbound train.

I’d say not… look at the above image. This Syrian girl was in hospital as a direct result of American-financed terrorism in her country… terrorism SUPPORTED by US “Pro-Life” politicians. If you vote for “Pro-Lifers”… THIS is what you vote for. Not very “Pro-Life”, is it? It’s rather nasty and brutal, isn’t it? The righties accuse me of being “full of vitriol” and “an ugly troll”… well, THIS is what all their “Pro-Life” caterwauling leads to. If I rile up such sorts, so be it. I’ll speak the truth… I’ll continue to expose the horrid truth about the Pro-Life Movement. They don’t scruple at lying or at violence, but that’s OK for the konvertsy righties! It’s in a noble cause!

This is a meaty reflection on this Orthodox Christmas… do you want to serve Christ or do you want to serve the US Republican Party and its nihilistic grasping Anti-Life ideology? I’ve chosen… what about you?

24 December 2015. This Is Why I’ve Come to HATE the “Pro-Life” Movement and ALL That It Stands For

00 Andy Marlette. Pro-Life. 2015

______________________________

Read this.

This is sickening and disgusting. This is what the “Evangelical” atheists and their Amen Corner in the Republican Party want throughout the USA. Would Our Lord Christ have reacted as the “Evangelicals” and Republicans do? I think not.

NO ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN CAN HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH “EVANGELICALISM” OR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY. BOTH ARE EVIL TO THE CORE.

I thought the Republicans and “Evangelicals” misguided and loony… I was wrong. They’re EVIL. Draw your own conclusions…
