Are You Being Persecuted?

00 Are you being persecuted. 25.11.14


Because this question comes up every holiday season, I thought I’d help everyone out with a handy chart. Thanks to Ryan Richardson for making it look good.  See also:

Apparently, this bugs me every year.

18 January 2014. A Photo Essay. It Was a VERY Cossack Christmas in Volgograd…

The above images show the contemporary life of the Cossacks in Volgograd Oblast. I’ll say this… Cossack honour and Cossack duty haven’t changed one bit, have they? If I had to choose between Cossack integrity and decency and the lies of a poseur like Rod Dreher (Mr Dreher issued snarky comments on Cossacks), there’s no choice for good people, is there? I know whom I favour… and I confide that most of you agree with me on this one…

Pope to Celebrate Mass in Youth Prison on Holy Thursday

00 Pope Francisco Bergoglio. 14.03.13


On Thursday, the Vatican said in a statement that Pope Francisco Bergoglio would celebrate Mass next week, before Catholic Easter, in a youth detention centre in Rome, during which he’d wash the feet of prisoners. The Vatican said the Holy Thursday Mass would continue Bergoglio’s tradition as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, when he served Mass in prisons, hospitals, and nursing homes.

Editor’s Note:

All leftists should note that Pope Francisco is a strong advocate of social justice and economic equity. That means that semi-Republican pukes like Dolan and O’Malley should halt their smarmy and underhanded support of the Republican Anti-Life Programme… but they won’t. Let God see and judge…

Today, Eastern Orthodox Serbs and Russians, the Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Copts in Egypt, the monasteries of Mt Athos, and Greek Old Calendarists mark and celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ according to the Julian calendar.
