Lavrov Sez Ukrainian Nationalist Extremists Persecute Christians

00 slavyansk 01. 19.06.14

______________________________

In Genève, Minister of Foreign Affairs S V Lavrov said, “Christians face persecution not only in the Middle East, but also in the Ukraine, where fratricidal war broke out in the wake of an anti-constitutional coup, as extremist nationalists stoked up sectarian strife”. Lavrov stated that extremists destroy Orthodox churches and monasteries, subjecting priests and believers to intimidation and harassment. In Novorossiya alone, they destroyed ten churches to the foundations and damaged another 77. He said, “They killed three Orthodox priests, and many more fled to Russia to escape extremist threats”.

He also said that we have to halt the exodus of Christians from the Middle East, noting that this might have “the most negative consequence in terms of its impact on the structure of Arab societies, and on our preservation of the historical and spiritual heritage of all mankind”. Lavrov noted that the crimes of ISIS and other extremist groups against Middle Eastern Christians have “all the signs of genocide. Entire cities, such as Mosul, completely lost their traditional Christian presence. In ISIS-controlled territory, jihadists commit terrible crimes, their obscurantism leads to violence… they kill Christians, including priests, burn them alive, sell them into slavery, plunder them, expel them from their native places, and use them as hostages”. Lavrov pointed up the situation in Syria, which was an exemplary model of peaceful and mutually respectful coexistence between different religious communities, “but that way of life is under threat as a result of the actions of extremist forces used [by the West] to fight against Bashar al-Assad’s government”.

22 February 2015. One of Libyan Martyrs MAY be “Eastern” Rather than “Oriental” Orthodox

01 Weeping Angel

______________________________

I got this from one of the Cabinet:

I found out today that one of the martyrs was not a Copt, but rather Eastern Orthodox, perhaps from Kenya or Ghana, of the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria.

That’s all that I have… I’ll get back to youse guys when I have more.

Holy New Coptic Martyrs of Libya (15 February)… Heroes of the Orthosphere

00 Holy New Martyrs of Libya. 2015

______________________________

The Coptic Patriarchate of Alexandria and all Africa proclaimed the 21 Coptic men beheaded by terrorists martyrs. Their feastday is 15 February. However, do NOT jump into a Fox News-like hatred of all Muslims. Trust me, most are as aghast at this as we are. The Copts are part of the Orthosphere… blood of our blood, bone of our bone. Light a candle in their memory… we’re Christians, that’s what we do…

Supposed “Orthodox” Nun Goes About Spouting Hate About Islam

00 Supposed 'Orthodox' nun. 01.01.15

THIS is an “Orthodox nun?” I think not… she smells like a feminine analogue of Nathanael Kapner (and here)… signboard and all… it DOES take all kinds…

______________________________

Read this. A Cabinet member said this:

I suspect that she’s a Uniate. No Orthodox nun… especially, one from the Middle East… would dare to traipse around so freely. No monastic house would let her! Then, to voice such a self-willed opinion! No… she must be Uniate.

I quite agree. I know of no Orthodox nuns who dress like modern RC nuns… as this one does. Besides, no REAL Orthodox would issue such hatred of Muslims. Orthodox and Muslims have lived together for 1,300 years… the Westerns have no conception of that. There are all kinds under the sun… some of them are quite feral, like this “nun”. God do spare us…
