14 July 2015. Is it Lawful to Give Tribute unto Caesar, or Not?

There’s been much kerfuffle amongst the konvertsy about the so-called “gay marriage” issue. I think that the bishops should step in and STOP THE DISCUSSION NOW (and their obsession with the Jenner Affair). It isn’t building up the Church nor is it helping anyone’s salvation. This is the same set of asshats that beat the tollhouses to death thirty years ago and the ROCOR SOBs had to say… “Stop! There’s not much revealed on this and this discussion isn’t helping the Church. We order it to cease”. I wish that they’d do the same thing today. It’d do wonders for my old bones (and for many others, too) to see people like Dreher, Reardon, Elijah Borek, and Jesse Dominick shut up. The Church stated its position recently, the best expression being that of the ROCOR Diocese of Eastern America. There’s truly nothing further of use to say. I think that it’s time for the bishops to sit on all idiots who want to keep this pseudo-issue alive. The Church isn’t going to “do” gay marriages, that’s that, and there’s nothing further to say. Perhaps, the loud asshats could try doing good works… I’ve heard that they help one win salvation… which pointless discussion on the internet does not.

Them’s my two cents…
