On Facebook, John Whiteford posted utter rot positing that the Church condemns socialism. I’m not kidding. Here’s my reply (which I posted on his timeline):
Here is Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and all the Russias with his dear friend, G A Zyuganov, First Secretary of the KPRF. His Holiness has another dear longtime friend… Fidel Castro! HH has always opposed capitalism. He OPPOSES nearly every political stance that John Whiteford stands for. Mr Whiteford has to commemorate His Holiness, as HH IS the head of our Church. You may follow HH or you may follow John Whiteford. Do note that I attach an image to prove my point.
A case in point is the Church’s support for the DNR and LNR, with their creative Orthodox/Socialist synthesis. Mr Whiteford tramples on that with his support for the amoral satanic “Evangelical” popinjay Ted Cruz, who spat on our Arab bishops in Washington. Mr Whiteford supports the Republican Party, with its demonisation of Holy Rus and its support for the godless Uniate/schismo Ukrainian pseudo-state. In short, Mr Whiteford is full of it… don’t argue with sorts like that. They’re impervious. Block them… as I did. Now, he can’t post to my timeline or cause me any grief. Don’t waste your time with such ignoranuses. God has only given us a short spell to do good. Don’t waste it by fighting with the terminally pigheaded. As a friend of mine said of Whiteford:
He demands the last word in everything, even if it’s only “Yes”.
You can’t dialogue with those whose only wish is to impose a juvenile monologue, where they have the final say. Just be aware that Whiteford (and those like him) are NOT spokesmen for the Church (I, certainly, am not such!)… they not only lack the proper blessing from their bishop, most of them (like Whiteford) lack the proper Orthodox clerical formation to be able and competent spokesmen. Have a care… the times are evil, and not all clergy are straight. Keep it focused…
