13 February 2018. A Picture IS Worth a Thousand Words… HH Shows the Way! The Church Is NOT “Conservative”… It Never Was… It Isn’t… It Never Will Be, Thank God!

________________________

You hear much from “conservative” ignoranuses like Rod Dreher, Steven Damick, and James Jatras (and those like them) that the Church is “conservative”. Nothing could be further from the truth. Look at the above image. It’s HH with one of his dearest friends. Comandante Fidel wasn’t a “conservative”… well, neither is HH and the Church isn’t either!

HH believes that the state has an activist role to play in society. He believes in single-payer healthcare. He believes that the state should mandate that all workers receive a minimum of paid vacation per year. HH believes that the “Free Market” is evil and believes that the ordinary worker will pay the cost after the current stock market bubble bursts. HH believes that women should receive maternity benefits and paid leave after childbirth. HH believes that Cuba is “The Island of Freedom”. My, my, my… not very “conservative”, is he?

Damick, Dreher, and Jatras lie. Dreher is allied with Patrick Buchanan. Buchanan is the author of the Republican Party’s racist “Southern Strategy”… ergo, Dreher must agree with that. Damick is allied with a hate site known as Russian Insider. Russian Insider is full of anti-Semitic rubbish and publishes the rants of the unbalanced “Brother Nathanael”… ergo, Damick must agree with that. Jatras is a long-time GOP activist… the GOP is anti-family, anti-life, pro-bankster, pro-war, pro-imprisonment, and anti-worker… ergo, Jatras must agree with that.

You can see that HH and the named worthies aren’t similar in the least. The rightwing slimers are trying to take over the Church. Shall we let them? They can do it if we’re supine and listless. It’s your choice… the pro-life pro-state attitude of HH… the anti-life anti-state attitude of the rightwing slimers.

Choose wisely…

Good birds of a feather flock together… Shitbirds of a feather flock together. I stand with the good birds… I’m not alone…

Patriarch Kirill: Russia Helped to Protect Christians in Syria

________________________

Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia said in his Christmas interview with Rossiya-1 TV:

Operations of Russia’s Aerospace Forces in Syria helped to protect the Christian minority from persecution and killings. Besides solving some issues linked to stabilising the situation, preventing military threats, and preventing the takeover of power by terrorists, a very important part of Russia’s participation was to protect the Christian minority. Thanks to Russia’s participation, we thwarted genocide of Christians. If Islamist forces had maintained their influence and activity, the situation in Syria would’ve repeated the Iraqi scenario after the toppling of Saddam Hussein.

During Hussein’s rule, I visited Iraq and its northern areas, and I was in Mosul. I visited ancient Christian monasteries. I saw this pietism of people and was glad that Christian churches peacefully existed in a Muslim environment. Now, almost nothing is left. The monasteries were destroyed, the churches were blown up, and 85 percent of Christians were either eliminated or expelled from Iraq. This could’ve happened in Syria. Both the Russian Orthodox Church and the Catholic Church will continue efforts to provide humanitarian assistance to Syrians. We also have bilateral agreements with the Catholic Church to provide humanitarian assistance together. There are different areas in which we’re acting. I hope they’d make their contribution to providing real assistance to those who still suffer in Syria.

Editor:

Note well that Iraqi Christians were safe until the USA imported “democracy” and empowered Islamists (whom the Anglos used to destabilise the situation). What does this tell you about Evangelical sectarians and their loud yelps of “Christianity?” I’d say that it proves that Born-Agains aren’t Christians at all… I do daresay that I’m not alone in thinking that way.

7 January 2018. Here’s How HH Spent Christmas… With the Homeless

________________________

HH spent Christmas as he always spends major feasts… with the lowly and hurting of this world. Next to him is the inimitable Bishop Panteleimon Shatov, the MP tsar for social justice and social action. Do note that loudmouths such as Shevkunov, Alfeyev, Potapov, and Paffhausen don’t do likewise. After, all there are oligarchs, stockbrokers, real-estate developers, and biznessmen to minister to! Why, even the thought of associating with such low-lifes…

This is why HH is the bomb and why the people I just named are posturing wussies. When you have done this to the least of these, my brethren… HH shows the way, as always.

HH’s Condolences on the Recent Terrorist Attack on a Mosque in Egypt

________________________

On 24 November 2017, terrorists attacked a Sufi mosque in Bir al-Abed (North Sinai Governorate) in the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt during Friday prayers. The extremists arrived at the mosque in cars, detonated an explosive device inside the building, and then shot people running out onto the street from the mosque. After ambulances appeared on the scene, they began to shoot at the doctors. As of 25 November, at least 300 people are dead and more than 100 injured, including many children. His Holiness Patriarch Kirill Gundyaev of Moscow and all the Russias sent his condolences to the President of the Arab Republic of Egypt and to the Head Mufti of Egypt.

His Excellency Abdul-Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil al-Sisi

President of the Arab Republic of Egypt

My Right Honourable President!

Accept my condolences in connection with the tragedy that occurred in the mosque near El Arish that claimed many human lives. This mayhem towards believers during prayers testifies that these extremists (who call themselves “Muslims”) had no real faith in the Most High. This fact exposes as myth the idea that terrorists protect Islam and fight for its purity. They use the most insidious and cruel means to intimidate people, to force them to fulfil their vicious will, to destroy the principles of good-neighbourliness and tolerance, which are important in creating a dignified and prosperous life in our modern society. In such circumstances, as never before, it’s important for believers in traditional religions to show solidarity and cohesion to uphold the ideals of goodness and justice in the modern world. I hope that the perpetrators of this attack won’t escape justice. In these sorrowful days, I wish the wounded a speedy recovery and that the relatives and friends of the dead will bravely overcome the grief that has saddened them. I wish strength and resolution to those who are working today to overcome the consequences of this event and I hope that all of the people of Egypt would show solidarity and determination in the fight against extremism.

With sincere sympathy,

+ KIRILL

Sheikh Shauki Ibrahim Abd al-Karim Alam

The Supreme Mufti of the Arab Republic of Egypt  

Honoured Mufti!

With deep sorrow, I received the news of the terrorist attack on the Sinai Peninsula that killed and injured hundreds of innocent people. Please, accept my sincere condolences. The terrorists committed this terrible crime during Friday prayers in a mosque to try to disrupt peaceful life in your country and to spread panic and fear amongst the people. Clearly, this in itself shows that for extremists there’s nothing sacred, and their beliefs have nothing in common with the values and norms of Islam. My conviction is that such actions won’t achieve their goals and that criminals won’t intimidate peaceful people who want to build the life of their society on the solid foundation of good-neighbourliness and mutual understanding with people confessing other traditional religions. I ask you to convey my words of consolation and support to the relatives and friends of the dead and injured. I wish to you, and to all the people of Egypt, courage and strength in confronting evil and violence.

With condolences,

+ KIRILL

Patriarch of Moscow and all the Russias
