24 July 2016. Priests Who Use the Eucharist as a Weapon are EVIL

I saw this on FB:

This is nice… using the faith to manipulate and control the votes of the faithful. Isn’t there a canon that forbids clergy from speaking on political agendas or endorsing political candidates?

If you support Trump, you support a very-cleaned-up racist ideology. If you’re Pro-Life, it’s for life from the womb to the tomb. A vote for Trump is a vote for a man who throughout his life used women for his pleasure and financial prosperity. If you vote for Trump, you endorse a man financially irresponsible in his dealings, who put his financial burdens on society via the bankruptcy courts. In many ventures, he duped others. A vote for Trump is one that supports Pride, not a godly man’s humility. I could go on.

Honestly, both sides endorse issues that are against God’s plan. I don’t support abortion. However, it’s the law of the land, and a vote and win for Trump won’t change this law. It must go through the process needed to remove it. As we know, law doesn’t prevent mankind from sin or breaking law. If so, we wouldn’t have so many of the problems that are inherent in our human being. Sure, we can change the abortion law, but you’d better know they’d still do this deed in makeshift backrooms… resulting in millions of dead babies and women.

To all of those who are against abortion, I’d say that this is an issue changeable only through Christ and a change of heart. If you’re Pro-Life… the proof of that isn’t a quadrennial vote. The proof of having Pro-Life convictions would come in becoming a counsellor at one of the many pro-life clinics, in speaking to a teen, and sharing life with them in love. They need help like none others do. You can be physically present in events and marches. I used to do this in San Diego. Your service would show in so many ways… not just a vote.

Face it, we have many life-altering issues in our nation… the pulpit won’t push and coerce me my vote based on a single issue. Making people do things your way through guilt and false guilt by association is “cultish”; cults use such tactics to force their followers to do things. Peace.

I did some research. This Cusick is a reactionary papist and general Pro-Life Rethug fanatic. We shouldn’t chortle. I remember the Church War of the 70s and 80s… the OCA and ROCOR clergy refused people communion right-and-left; they didn’t care who it scandalised. We were evil in that, just as Cusick is evil in this. This is why I hate the Pro-Life Movement and everything that it stands for. The hypocrisy and narcissism in it is so intense that it floors one. There’s a wrong way of being right, and the Pro-Life Movement is a classic illustration of that.

14 July 2016. My Response to Those Who Blubber On About Their “Rights” and “Hurt Feelings”

01 squalling crybaby

______________________________

I have duties… I attend to them. I have friends… I stand by them. I have workmates… I uphold them. I have opinions… you have opinions… I won’t force you to express yourself as I do and I expect reciprocity. IN SHORT.. respect, honour, and decency… without that, our society falls. I hate “conservatives” and their open attempts to grub whatever they can, no matter the cost to people. I hate “liberals” and their smarmy condescension, at their arrogant and smug attitude to all and sundry. I’m old enough to know that perfection is not on offer anywhere by anyone at any time.

I hate those who try to grab more than their fair share and I despise those who believe themselves the crème de la crème of society. The “privileged” and the “élite”… they’re no different under the skin, are they? I treat others as I’d like to be treated in return. Is that so hard a concept to grasp?

13 July 2016. Some Deluded Orthodox are Putting Up Trump Signs… HH Shows Us that “Socialism IS Good”

01 His Holiness Patriarch Kirill with Cuban Ambassador and Cuban MDs

______________________________

Some deluded Orthodox are putting up Trump signs. Let’s keep it short and focused. Such people spit on Our Lord Christ and what He taught and did, they trample on the Church’s immortal witness in re worldly power and the government, and they defy the example given us by our Holy Patriarch. The above image shows HH with Cuban doctors. HH thinks that the Cuban healthcare system rocks and that it’s a great exemplar for the world. By the way… Cuba does BETTER than the USA does in many health indices as a direct result of its socialised healthcare policies and system. Our Holy Patriarch does NOT support or pal around with godless neoliberal slime (both “conservatives” and “liberals”)… our Holy Church condemns Libertarianism and upholds the state as fallen mankind requires regulation… Our Lord Christ went to the Cross because he pissed off the powers-that-be. That’s why no Orthodox Christian can vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Do think on that and act accordingly.

One of my friends emailed me:

I hope so because our society is hurtling in a dark direction.

I need add nothing. The clouds are, indeed, gathering. We can avert this calamity, but shall we? Yes… shall we? It IS up to us… do choose wisely… don’t enable and arm the warmongers. At the least, don’t do that…
