Red-dyed Easter eggs from Belarus


This post of yours reminds me of something I’ve pondered over the years. This salad is real food. One thing I’ve noticed over the years is there’s often a correlation between how long someone’s been Orthodox and how much of the fake stuff (soy cheese, soy milk, fake meat, etc) someone uses while fasting. It seems the less time they’ve been Orthodox, the more of this shit they eat. Some of the konvertsy stay in this mindset for years. I once scandalised a new konvertsy by offhand mention of my lunch… I’d had a McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish during Lent. Oh, the horrors!

Of course, this is just another example of how the konvertsy think their (modern) ways are best. The traditionally-Orthodox countries have been doing the Lenten thing for centuries, so, there are many recipes to be had out there on the ‘net. However, do the konvertsy take advantage of this wonderful Orthodox culinary heritage? NO! Aside from hummus and pita bread, that is. They’d rather eat the soy crap rather than real food.

This is just another example of the konvertsy rejecting everything culturally Orthodox. You should see some of the crap konvertsy bring to church to be blessed on Easter. No kulich, no cheese paskha, no red-dyed eggs. They whine, “It’s too difficult”. Puhlease.


This is truth… nothing for sinful ol’ me to add…
