12 April 2015. A Believer’s Take on Marriage

00 Nayzak. How 2  b a Good Muslim Husband. 2011

How 2 B a Good Muslim Husband





Gabe and Laura… this one’s for you. May Laura deliver safely…



When Allah has decided to unite two hearts in marriage:

  • no distance is too far
  • no time is too long
  • no powerful force can separate them
  • no one can break them apart

Dedicated to my lovely sister FATIMA MICHEL BARNES


Today is Easter… spread the joy… to all around you… to believers (including non-Christians)… to secularists (don’t call ‘em atheists, please)… to all of God’s Creation (including your animals).

To Mr Mumtaz… thank you for such a beautiful (and concise) post. God luv ya…

To all rightwing asshats… Muslims are believers, too… you’ve forgotten that. Neither ISIS nor the Azov Battalion represent real Christian and real Muslim believers. That’s that… it’s what I hold and what I stand for, any road.

THIS IS MY PERSONAL BELIEF… I don’t claim it to be the “Teaching of the Church”… however… I’d say that it doesn’t contradict it, though. Be careful with labelling things the “Teaching of the Church”… quite often, it’s nothing but idiosyncratic opinion decked out in ill-fitting (and utterly false) finery… reflect on that, this Easter…

5 April 2015. A Thought from Archbishop Mark Golovkov…

00 Mark Golovkov. 05.04.15


Archbishop Mark Golovkov is the “shadow” diplomat of HH… that is, he, and NOT the Blunder, is HH’s close advisor on matters outside the SNG. Of course, the konvertsy are gaga over the Blunder. That simply tells you how superficial and ignorant they are. Lately, there’s been rumbling form the usual cast of suspects about how the Church and the Republican Party are close. That’s a lie. For instance, the Church doesn’t share the Islamophobia of the GOP, especially not the satanic hate spewed by demonic blasphemers such as Ted Cruz. Vladyki Mark’s words are a read n’ heed. THIS is what we believe… THIS is what I stand for… THIS is what the Church teaches. ‘Nuff said…

There’s no “religious test” in the USA… never has been, never will be. That’s that…

30 March 2015. A Point to Ponder… Why is ISIS So Horrid and the KKK Not?

00 kkk and isis. politics. 30.03.15.jpg-large


Let’s see… is there much difference in the POV of ISIS and the KKK (I’d add in the White Citizens’ Councils and those like Lester Maddox)? I’d say much less than one would think. Actually, BOTH are perversions of major world religions. I know many Muslims… I don’t know a single terrorist amongst them. However, I wouldn’t say the same about some (a minority, but a palpable number) of the “Ukrainian Catholics” and Ukrainian Orthodox” that I’ve met. Terrorism isn’t a part of either Islam or Christianity. Full stop. Those who inject such into these faiths are heretics, no doubt about it. The hate spewed out upon Muslims by the ignorant is bullshit… I’ll stand tall and say so. ISIS is wrong for killing Christians in Mesopotamia… the KKK was wrong for lynching blacks… the Right Sector is wrong for deliberately shelling innocent civilians… I’d say that there was plenty of blame to go ’round on BOTH sides!

Guess what? Both Islam and Christianity are correct in saying that we live in a fallen world. Both are right in saying that the world is in need of redemption. Therefore, why should evil’s existence surprise us? Rather, we must wrestle with it… think on it… it’s a meaty point to ponder…
